Fettered By Your Cold - Poem by Ibnu Din Assingkiri

I saw you
with blunt eyes
what seems tiny to my eyes,
spreading your upset.
I often senile
to the priority
you lose heart
after chewing bitterness

I was fettered
by your cold
slumped in the corner of the eyes
extinct in the grander,
lost in silence.
your cold has axed,
my selfish shield.

I failed
because all of my anxiety
are the tombstones on your lips.
