If heavy rain and hurricane

Can dispel this savage gloom,

I’d give myself to them completely

Than be swallowed up alive by doom—

I’m numb, not dumb;

Shattered and blurred.

Fallen too deep,

My bones all weep.

But, there is just vast emptiness;

No sign of rain and hurricane;

Just space, silence, and melancholy

That permeates my heart; my soul, pain.
