I helped you

to pack your things into a suitcase,

Stuff scattered carelessly,

Entangled in your arrivals and departures.

Expected days have passed.

The day before yesterday

turned into today,

with the date of the sentence

printed on the ticket.


Gradually, the traces of your stay

began to disappear,

The fragrance of your perfume faded.

The last sheet dropped from the calendar.


I our minds there is the autumn solstice

and consent to the inevitable parting.

Emptiness as winter haunts the cold.



The Sadness


I don't know,

Where you find the border of sadness.

Maybe it consists of circles

like the Dante's hell.


I am pulled in deeper and deeper

By the quicksand of disappointment.

The blue heavens are closing over me.


My smile is more perfect than the moon.

It always looks like a half-moon

and leads the crowds of the observers astray.


Only the abyss in my eyes

is getting blacker and deeper.

The eyes cannot lie



The String On The Air


I was singing,

Like the string on the air,

The sad song about loneliness,

The bitter disappointments,

The absence of love.


I was hanging somewhere,

Far from the reality

And was looking obsessively for

Understanding and tenderness.


I do not know why you plucked me.

Look what happened.

You broke the tensed string.

You have the piece of wire

In your hand,

But it is too little, too late
