Does It Exist


Is there a cure

for the pain of the soul,

for which no medicine

cannot find a diagnosis?


Is there a thread

with which it can be patched

the heart that has a crack

not to bleed to his core?


Is there a solid box

where can I pour out my thoughts

to pack them carefully

and from everything I may rest?!



Trapped In Herself


Trapped in myself

hungry for bits of hope,

thirsty for clear water

from the source of reality.


Trapped in myself

I hear the strong heartbeat,

and the soul is convulsed by uncertainty

wondering what next?


Trapped in myself

I feel the heavy steps

of the passing time,

it slowly gets lost and goes away.



When It Will All Disappear


When faith is gone,

the black crows will fly

on this ground of envy and cunning

without conscience to peck at dead bodies

of already dead feelings.


When hope is gone,

when all ships sink in the sea of life

and the drowning without boats and life belts

with a shred of hope - in themselves that they have left

to fight for air until the last breath.


When love is gone

there will be a torrential rain of malice in the hearts

to the faithful, the hopeful and the lovers,

the strong winds of jealousy,

they will blow it through the crack of the soul
