You hurt me again,
your emptiness hurts me.
You’d say: Why do you hold me again, then?
And I would know: I never released you.
I embrace you again and again,
even though you are in my arms from the first time,
again and again and again…
and it hurts every time
because my embrace remains empty.

Dragon, 2000-2010, translation
