** Endless Wanderings **
Your glances
Wrote on my feet
Vagrant, endless wanderings
And my yearning for you
Took me to that island
Where life was a bigger sin
Than death
And loving was
Even bigger a sin
For the first time I dared
To look at the ocean closely
And ocean went into my eyes
In the language of wait
I tried to write
A poem for you
But your remembrance
Became crossed with me
And made friends with the winds
I had to befriend the fires
Even though
I had never placed my feet
In any play arena
But still
I had to install my tent
In the stable of war horses
Now I bequeath to you
An island
An ocean
An unwritten poem
A little wind
Lots of fire
And a war horse
But endless wanderings
Will stay with me
As I keep committing
The bigger sin
Than the life ###
** Feeble Footsteps Of Sadness **
Feeble footsteps of sadness
Walk with me
Countless people
Have a claim
Of meeting me
And someone
Continually parts from me
I can not have any claim
Because union and separation
Both demand a price
Which i do not have
I either get pitilessness
Or am pitied upon
In both cases
To save myself from helpnessness and despair
I accumulate more emptiness
And enter the " slave circle " of lonliness
During another uncountable rotation in "slave circle"
I pass by your side
But you
Wearing the quilt of busy-ness
Have gone to sleep
And alienation
Narrows its noose around me
At the same moment
A part of my wish
Of becoming a cloud
Is fulfilled
And i am destined to
Not remain quiet , ever
And keep on walking
And walking
And feeble footsteps of sadness
Walk with me ###
