AUTUMN IN TIRANA
In Tirana is lost in water creeks,
Through extended water drips in the crystal windows,
In the abandoned benches from all of this unrest
In the naked trees all the way to forgiveness.
Even its returning tears of meditation are instant,
Forgotten old romances in memory,
Returning painfully in the soft spirits
A yellow paper, of my diary.
In Tirana of the earlier steps,
Of a bench that is always naked with green flowers,
Of the last glass dropped throughout ridges
Pieces of lips, skies of love
And longing for passed times,
For the deeming of light in the white soul,
For a life thrown away through angels of reflections,
For the abandoned leaves from all of this demise.
And traces are in every heart beat
For her…for someone…for love,
Of after times that are knocked in so much noise
…and of autumn, e melancholic pentagram.
Exhausted and suffering up to the last point
Exhausted and suffering all the way to becoming drunk,
From the weight of a fearful time,
And fatality of the offense of nations.
A time of screams from your centuries,
Raised over fires and fortresses of legends,
Bloody wounds by sleeping martyrs
A challenge of fates for the brave.
Twisted from the waves of our tributes
Lackeys rose over podiums of pain,
Exalted crowds all the way to craziness,
Under seized by heretical time.
A song of the first bird in the morning
A wind of earth covered by green flowers
A muse of skies always in azure
A summer flower always shining.
A hope and a praying ground of your sons
A suffering of sacrilegious that is raised over freedom
An ancient root of human foundation
An eternal voice of the last passions.
