I Curse The Day


I curse the day

when I met you,

when you met me,

when our bodies joined together.


I curse the day

when I loved you sincerely,

when you loved me insincerely,

as you gave me insincere promises.


I curse the day

when I shared my feelings with you,

as you took advantage of my joy,

and I confided you all my dreams.


I curse the day

because I let our love to burst into flames

because you substitute me with another

and you forgot our love.


Let Me


Let me be an artist,

to paint you a smile onto your face,

to paint you joy

with the colours of happiness.


Let me be a poet,

to write you emotional verses

and to sing you love melody.


Let me be wine

to dance onto your lips,

to be drunk by my love.


Let me be a story teller,

to whisper a story in your ear

and you to be fallen asleep onto my bosom




I am a passer-by

in pursuit of impossible.

I have packed my soul

into the case of life

and I have shed few tears secretly

to wash out the entire dirt.


I am travelling inside a time machine

between reality and dream.

I am walking along the streets

full of soulless people,

there is neither a drop of empathy

nor human solidarity


I shall follow those road signs

that will be chosen by my heart.

I shall start my journey with love

and great optimism,

my experiences to be sent to everybody

and joyful I shall return.
