The Death's Hole


How can I be born within a time

hourglass and fracture?


How can I perceive the light of detonations

And gray smoke wandering inside my head?


Death, like destiny,

Arrives as a stranger and departs as a stranger.


No matter how fortified

the answers may be

with a deceitful cloak,

Death remains resembling itself.


In its shadow and shadows,

And in the elongation of its silence.


Who will recycle it amidst fragmentation

And the sudden disappearance


After a temporary slumber

and horrifying nightmares?


And the increasing weights of darkness...?


The Drynes Of The Soul!


I am here, and no echo shatters the vast gates.


And your voice...!

A chance prophecy

Stumbles upon the wilderness of my soul

beyond the realm of dreams.


As the sleepy holes of time are silent,

I stole a glance at a face of a cloud

near a wound and a blind memory.


Salt leaked from a tear of delicacy,

And cries rose from the clay of suspicion.


I thought I was incapable

of embodying my trivial arguments,

As I assigned them a place in a fictitious realm

with imaginary names.


Weakness upon weakness,

The transparent soul groans

in the custody of the train...!


And behold, your voice

Rubbing my voice in the grooves of longing,

The drool of affection seeking refuge amid anticipation,

And the shirt of patience...!


Foggy Morning!


The calmness weighs me down

with its enforced silence.


I feel as if I were just a fantasy,

freshly pulled away,

Translating my drowsy mornings.


I forget myself

and transform into a lie,

naive and fueled

In emptiness.


Because the fog is born

from the womb of silence,

It always awakens me to the ecstasy

of fragrance in the corners

of folds and withering.


Don't be deceived

by the transparency of colors

and their dominance,

For serene mornings

make us feel warmth,

And our only choice

is to immerse ourselves in silence.


And the expanse continues to widen...!!
