TIME POEMS

THE WORLD MIRROR / SHAKE HEARTS

O time

That wind bleed

On my window

I put my beloved ones

In your hands

Since a long time

My window is open

And you are returning back

To it

Just alone

 

*****

 

On the braids

Of my blind time

I will hang the place

The place which will collapse

Tear by tear

While I am turning my back
