Internal calm

more important than emotions

is in everyone's heart

just too deep for some

and they can't

bring it out


They prefer to get off the train

for fear of too much


and wither slowly


Before The Sun Blows

The Stars Away


When on the stretcher of the starry sky

the full moon shines,

I look at the screen that lights up

The darkness of the soul,

when thoughts do not sleep.


I click the words hidden under the heart,

looking for a poem that gives warmth,

so that before the eyes with a thousand of emotions,

the feeling of happiness could quiver once more.


I still have a hint of uncertainty in my mind

whether one day I shall reach the Parnassus of poetry,

on time, before the candle of life in me goes out

and then when I shall be silent, shall the wind rustle?!


I cannot leave much behind

just a few lines and a period, maybe

which will either crown or finish up my story,

when the pain shall overcome the body.


One-Third Frozen


In the mind’s fog

I stumble over the air

that thickens when I dress life in moments

improvised by words: someday, perhaps,

for sure not today.


On the carpet of memories

I leave no trace.

With a lightning rod of happiness

I catch compulsive grimace

heading towards the wisdom of those

who knew that they knew nothing.


And I thank God

that in one third He rewrote me

and in the remaining rest

left me in the original.
