A Luc Bat (vietnamese poetry)






Charon


In this darkness, I lie

if a shadow can, cry aloud

to mock the reaper's shroud

folly to be so proud, so wrong.

To disregard your song

I knew it all along, you see,

For it lived deep within me

My heart held the key, to unlock

the ever ticking clock

and to my utter shock, I died.
