Emotional Death


I was once a victim of blind love,

Inexperience cost me dearly

It hit me like a bolt from the blue

He knocked me off my feet, that I felt emotionally dead.


That pain is much stronger than death itself

A sudden blow breaks the heart

It almost paralyzed the brain cells

The body decays, the sense of beauty dies.


I lived a long time, as disinterested as a plant

Even though I had to act like she didn't break me

Despite all efforts, betrayal is never forgotten

But some force strengthened me

It turns me into a mighty Phoenix.


I am still haunted by images of the past

Scars on the soul are silent witnesses

They act like extremely heavy shackles

Which no factor can remove.

If They Tell You That I Died


If they tell you I died

No, I didn't, I don't know that

Tell them I just left

There, to wait for you on the shore of sleep.


If they tell you I died

Tell them they're wrong

I disappeared in the shadow of the moon

Where the angels cover me with a song.


Tell them   how   I fell asleep

In the ship of the heavenly sea

That I remained a secret in your heart

Like a murmur, from an inexhaustible source.


If they tell you I died

Don't let your pupils darken

Tell them, her soul is as big as the universe.

her immortal verses shine in the galaxy.


Lost Love


It was timeless love

an unfortunate circumstance set us apart.

The pain in my heart poured out

by fate the branches of my soul mutilated.


I loved him like my eyes

was my whole world

I lost the sun and spring with him

I can't breathe, I die like a flower.


Probably God loved him more than I did

that's why he took it from me.

My luck was flying like dandelions

So instead of love I drank a glass of pain.


And, my life stopped, it's not like a river

I try, but his shadow follows me

Winds bring the ancient promised words:

"My love, only death can separate us"!
