Black ink

Time, a continuum of broken hearts.
I'd like to see,

thou I shall not see the light.
Every time I ask myself if I would be someone,

a difference.
I know then that sharp,

act won’t be my answer.
I just go back

Back and back

Hello, Jakub,
An emotional piece - rejection and disapproval, perhaps. I am wondering if the third line should begin with "though" instead of "thou" - interpretation may be different. The brevity makes the poem more thought provoking, and title and final line are very strong. This feels like a fleeting thought we all have occasionally, which hopefully does not last too long.
Thank you,

It's not a fleeting thought :)
