If You Really Want to Know (5/22/2022)

If you really want to know

the essence of insanity on the way of Love,

ask me.

If you really want to know

about a life lost, a mind turned upside down,

ask me.

If you really want to know

about days filled with hundreds of troubles,

ask me.

If you really want to know

about deserts burned by the fire of blood,

ask me.
