Lonely

Poem By Ruslan Kerimov

My eyes irradiate no light,
My soul’s a homeless cat,
It’s frozen and it looks for warmth
On a soft and fluffy mat,
Is so afraid of life and death
And of a big street rat.

My thoughts, like fallen maple leaves,
Are scattered on a road,
The road that leads to no result.
Unbearable load
Is on my shoulders and it seems,
This way I already rode.

My memories - my only friends,
They never leave me ’lone
Unlike my childhood pals who’ve gone
And turned their hearts to stone.
Though human beings are around,
Why I feel so forlorn?

A Castle Of Sand

I remember the time when I was a kid,
When we played Knights and Queens hand in hand.
We dreamt of a kingdom, we decided to build
A marvelous castle of sand.

The Collapse Of Ussr

My country broke down. Did you hear that sound?
A sound of destruction, a roar of disaster,
Reckless decisions and riots all around,
Nobody figured what would be thereafter.

Farewell

You want to soar away on wing of starlit Night
To blinking lights afar, unknown mystic worlds,
Abandoning the past, the remnants of delight,
And throwing out the ballast of unspoken words

The Tree

When you planted me in fertile soil
I was a sprout weak and small
But owing to your care and toil
I grew up quickly strong and tall.

The Trace Of Dervishes (Dedicated To Nasimi)

In the Orient’s boundless plain
No beginning is there, nor end.
Revelations from heavenly reign,
From the Lord to the deserts descend.

Someone

The world is awakened by Spring, by the rays of the sun,
But someone sleeps fast with his limbs torn apart by a shell,
And someone is very much sad but someone has fun,
For someone this Spring is the heaven, for someone the hell.
