When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…




It was an autumn day;

I walked on dry leaves-

Of gold, brown, red, orange-

To hear the sound of their breakage;

A sound that sounded like a symphony.

A sound that reminded me-

Of a heart- broken girl,

In years past,

Who walked on gold, brown, red, orange-

Dry leaves of autumn;

To be trampled by your feet-

On her heart…

Night, a dark night, harmonious and shy;

Sings over old branches of trees with sigh.

I am thoughtful when night warns storm and rain.

And it is night in the world, when I am in pain.

And I am thoughtful again, what if rain pours everywhere!

If it throws the world like a boat in water so rare.

When it comes obscurity, the dark night-

I think again what will be for us the morning light?

If the morning’s life peak from mountain’s bed!

If the morning covers its face from storm’s dread…

Tears and laughter tire me;

And people who cry, laugh with glee;

And everything which may happen as surprise;

And farmers who plant or get up at sunrise!

I am weary of hours, days, and abyss;

And all the scattered buds never see the bliss.

I am tired of ambition, power, and charm;

And everything else without alarm.

When I exhale, my breath becomes a dark cloud.

It stands like stone wall, forgets the crowd.

Should one’s breath be what mine is,

I can’t find friend to give me ease…

Love like a hidden blossom stands;

Shelters in the cage of heart and commands;

A sensitive gardener to care;

Waters the roots, cleans the air-

Before the hurtful insects change-

The beautiful blooms to strange.

Make home inside the roots vicious ants;

never mind the tenderness of poor plants.

Be my gardener, water my root.

Juicy and healthy I’ll be as a fruit.

Blossom opens, love flourishes.

No regret remains after all the wishes…

The scary moment of assault simplifies.

A sensation of helplessness drastically horrifies.

Among pictures and walls, I think defense.

Behind closed door, I write suspense.

Story of horror shivers my face.

I become a prisoner in my own base.

Has anyone ever known-

The fear, the danger of being alone?


I open my heart, my story I share.

In the back room, I tremble on my chair.

Wishing for air, even the cold winter breeze-

The warmth of the room makes me freeze.

The hidden blue of great sky remains-

Covered at all times, adds to my pains.

Everything ever since seems apart.

Can I ever be the same in my heart?

Never evermore/ I can’t ignore-

That poems I write/  nature they invite.

To say that I am here/ or I was dear;

That I can endure/ because I am mature.


My poems are/ my bridge to star.

I write so I can invite/ the endless night;

So I can speak/ to days and weak;

So I can make/ nights to wake;

So I can blame/ darkness with shame;

So I can erase/ lines from my face;

So I can desire/ a candle with fire;

So I can grow/ in my room a window;

So in my book/ I can look-

To happy crowd/ through my dark cloud…
