Lost song

There is no song only poetry,

the music left with your silence,

and in a bitter cry

died the memory.

 

There is no song only poetry,

the music left with your silence.

And I keep waiting…

I was left alone!

 

And my song was lost

with your silence,

and there was no music only poetry…

In silence…

You in your world,

I am in mine.

You are self-absorbed,

I’m lost!

 

I cry, I weep!,

and you look at me.

Only words…

There is more hurt.

 

You in your world,

I am in mine.

You are self-absorbed,

I’m in pain!

 

I don’t scream anymore

you don’t look at me.

Only words,

I’m dying, I’m lost…

 

You in your world,

I am in mine.

You are self-absorbed,

I said it clear; I will forget you!

 

I cry in silence,

you already forget me.

There are no more words,

I fell asleep…

The Sad Little Girl

This little girl is leaving,

is leaving alone, is leaving sad,

she is living tired of waiting.

 

She wanted to reach you and desperate

she yelled in anguish, she shouted to shut up!

But you don’t listen, you never heard,

and the sad little girl was left alone.

 

Time passes and you more distant,

the little sad girl lonely cried,

and even more sad you left her.

The beautiful little girl once you loved so

of sadness she died alone.

I only know

I don’t know if by whim,
I don’t know if by pain,
all I know is that my heart
doesn’t want to let you go.

I don’t know if I still love you,
I don’t know if I ever loved you,
I only know that I have you there
from the day I meet you.

I don’t know if I want to forget you,
I don’t know if I ever will forget you,
I only know that I remember you
and that in my heart you remained.

Absent

I was about to forget you,
I pretended not to think of you
But today I saw you again
And hope was reborn.

Every time more far,
And more close
All the time absent
And at the same time present.

I was about to forget you
And today you knocked at my door
I Saw your smile, I felt your hands
My eyes smiled and you muted my lips.

In this cold solitude
Today you didn’t show up
My eyes didn’t laugh
Arrive oblivion, you are not longer here.

Absent love

I cry for a crazy love that does not exist,

and I refuse to write these sad verses.

And even if I cry and cry

for something that does not exist.

I’m dying without thinking…

Why did you come?
