POEMS of Şenol Alçınkaya
I destroyed the waterfalls to see you, to come to you. I stretched out my hands to you, but I I was dreaming with the lights out. I was thinking about that day, but darling... There was no need, actually, I was with you because you are. You were in my heart, in my dreams, in my dreams. You were everywhere, darling. Do not deceive yourself with dreams, my darling. You're fucking yourself, honey, I couldn't find a cure for your trouble, I was the light, but I was your way. Did you ask yourself why? You disappeared though my sweetheart Your heart was flowing Your eyes were crying, cursed with loneliness. Don't you cry, I'll cry instead... Both in and out.
I broke down the waterfalls so I could see you I extended my hands to you, but I I was dreaming with the lights out I was thinking about that day though darling There was no need for me to be with you Do not deceive yourself with dreams darling you curse yourself my only one I couldn't find a cure for your trouble I was the light, but I was your way Did you ask yourself why? You disappeared though my sweetheart Your heart was flowing Loneliness was devastated, your eyes were crying Don't cry, I'll cry instead
I'm like a bird on a branch, timid, homeless, homeless My wing is broken, my heart is wounded A beautiful shot from my heart I became a branch, I broke, I became a leaf, I withered I became a tree I became a human being, roasted with the pain of love.
