IN THE PATH OF MEMORIES

 

In the path of memories

I abandoned hope

In the palm of my hand

Then taken suddenly

Towards memories’ road

Before the gate a structure;

Dressed with a shirt of solitude

And longing is awakened once again

Before this day’s dream

 

  

TO A LANE OF LONGING

 

To a lane of longing

Was standing on a stoned memory

Early living on me

Embraced at a skin of solitude

Everywhere on each point

Unravels a shirt of time;

Then I stand again at the corner of memory

Suddenly remembered a love setting.

 

 

PORTRAIT

 

I am awakened

Nearby your portrait

 

Descended

Quietly in your view

 

Hanged a (re) born love

In front of night

 

As a dissolved portrait

Inside my eyes...

 

 

WAITING

 

Right after the end of initial verse

The second I placed on syncope

 

Until I felt

A thunder of longing and love

 

Waiting ... like three calls

Inside the path of memories...

 

 

(WITHOUT) HOPE

 

Let me draw with a charcoal

A little hope at a mirror’s face

 

With my fingers

Would feel drops of senses

 

After the dissolution of a cloud

To see your forgotten face

 

Let me transcend closed paths

With dark swamps

 

To find you smiling

Somewhere in the paths of hope
