My dream like swirling cream,
Drifting clouds in my cup of tea.
Not knowing to which team,
I pay my obligation fee.
The vagueness of my scream,
Is it sadness or laughter?
Two identical sounds beam
Which one is faster? My master!
Solitary lung uneven wear
I take the plunge for more air.
Is it relief or stubborn despair?
I quit smoking few years ago
Too late to salvage my choking blow!
I dream of the wholesome pair,
The first day I was born to air!
