    Acquisition

    Winter contemplates with death,
    and some souls turn to graves,
    The spring arrives in cold fire
    and burns on early summer shade;

    The roots suffer their burden,
    The leaves fall in their sleep,
    The wind shakes a shining dew
    to see a diamond that can weep;

    Wherever the sky has turned blue,
    Wherever the valleys are yellow green,
    All my lonely thoughts turn to words
    and I dwell where I have always been;

    Will we see ourselves grow too old,
    If dying young was ever a choice,
    With feet to tremble and sticks to hold
    and a throat of still desperate voice;

    There is a rainbow of happiness,
    Yet there is a spectrum of pain,
    From red to blue, I vividly grew
    to hide myself in some grey domain.

    For some it is easy to remember
    For some it is hard to forget.

    Unattainable

    Despite of all my sincere efforts
    I cannot forget you.
    It isn't easy to forget the chill of love
    in the desert of loneliness
    My thoughts linger in a suspension
    of experience of a thrilled past.
    Like a river without a source
    without an ocean, going on forever
    through rocky mountains and valleys.
    Why did I love you so much,
    I should have known the mirror
    of Insanity smiles in a painful reality.
    We cannot forget heaven once
    we have seen it with our naked eyes.
    It is a Bliss and it is a curse to know
    and to finally understand that
    once somebody belongs to somebody
    you become a wind that will never blow.
    You blame them and you curse yourself.
    Life finally transcends to an emotional
    cage where bars are made from
    despair of souls.

    End of a draft

    Engraving the bark of an old tree
    with a name so soft to forget,
    I hear a familiar laughter in hundreds of splashes in a little stream turning old with distance,
    There must be a street where I must
    walk to remember a conversation
    full of happy memories and vividness,
    I guess I will never be able to tell you the truth, it is uncertain what it might do to you and to me. The consequences open up a different page of fate and flaw.
    So I must write down in chlorine smelling paper about you in the middle of night when the moon is lost in the sky and no one is looking for it.
    I must capture you like wind stopped by a wall and kissed by it's plastered face, or like tears that never have complete meaning.
    I must fill myself with words and thoughts and end the existence
    of my favourite incoherent draft and sell myself a little satisfaction.

    Empty hearts

    Like magnets that lose their power
    We are no longer in some fantasy
    Of words like forever and Everlong
    We have come to the terms of reality
    of fairies falling flat on stones
    With empty hearts and broken bones

    Seeking revival of inevitable fate
    We wait for memories to bloom again
    Yet we know the future and it's near
    and it will take away the past slowly
    Making us aware that nothing lasts
    and you must know both fire and ash

    True words will haunt in deep thoughts
    the lost smile that cannot be forgotten,
    The basic touch of desire and instincts
    must now never be experienced again
    The compromise of defeat to be attained

    "I prefer a rose than a lover"
    "Roses
    Wither
    but
    Lovers
    Betray."

    Forgetfulness

    Sometimes I forget the name of my lover,
    Sometimes I forget her enchanting face,
    and then I remember her perfect smile,
    Mostly I remember that she didn't love me.
