It's raining, slowly

and every drop drips,

slowly washing my heart.

Inside it now

there is nothing left of you,

no sign.

Only this wet

around me that,

of the rainy evening,

can still refract light

inside me.


Never The Same Again


The life,

like a river in flood,

surprises us.

It flows among unexpected currents,

and it's in constant motion.

And we cradled by its fluctuating motions,

we will never be the same again.


The Emptiness Of The Soul.


If man stops loving,

slowly dies.

his heart goes out like a flame on which the breeze blows gently.

it goes out because its heart has dried up, like a burnt out candle.

And, one heart, a thousand dull hearts, let the world get lost among a thousand deafening noises,

slowly dissolving humanity in the void of the soul.
