The Withered Heart

1 comment





The day flows over crammed words

Every language is a surfeit of images,

There is no summer garden left within me;

Memories are just like yellow fall leaves,

Everything is mundane, and the time has deserted me

Ahh! It took me some time to cry out my heart.


My small little heart is shrinking day by day ,

In a million years, I never get occupied with;

So much pain rings, of too much plank of sorrow,

Overflowing into veins of my heart

Neither, I hold a breath, nor can gulp,

Every moment, I am suffocating in my agony.


Oh ! I am freezing in cold air at the shore

I am lingering with all of my desires,

Weaved together our dream garden ...burned down,

Withered leaf and flowers strew in front of the door ;

As if, Life has stopped at the edge of my sweet home

And I have become motionless to walk to the curvy road.


It is August, perhaps days of withering embark

Life wings from the top of the mountain ,

The delight of breeze is no more felt on my cheek,

Neither I can’t feel the calmness of nature ;

All seems I am buried in the deep dry grave.

In this small town, fear is gripping me in her black arms.


There is no elegance in the letter of old times

The emptiness of my heart is peeling out love,

Let me wrap around myself from the dead sun,

I keep falling from the cliff, and my soul is bruised ;

Ohh! missing my old blue jeans at the corner of the street,

Walking in the rain, with my old school friends in late afternoon.


With my ponderous heart, I couldn’t lift my soul

Bleeding in memories of those magnificence time ,

Depth of my mind is whirlwind with emotive thoughts,

Let me immerse my emotions in the cold ocean;

My eyes sobbed with bitter tears, haunting at glorious city lights

For now, I can’t tolerate the ache of my withered heart.


I am clueless wandering, resounding with my self-esteem

A broken soul is deteriorating, for unreasonable passions,

For, I am unable to pour out those afterglow emotions

The world chases me for my pure love and I ---

Bleeds for being a warm and innocent spirit ….

Who can teach me, how to deal with such trauma?


That summer is lost forever, for good

The crinkle of a leaf remains a souvenir ;

And I am bearing a dead heart, without rising ,

A wispy veil of time casts a dew on the grave,

This autumn, let me shed my infant’s feeble cry

For my withered heart might bid adieu!


Perhaps there exists no happy love, either great days

It seems a death by a thousand cuts in a blink of an eye,

Just to rise again, it will take to forget my life,

For ages and ages, I have been suffering harsh summer night;

Ahh! I don’t know when can I see joyous daylight?

Let me isolate from the evilness of the world.

  • We’ve entered a foggy time Where only the insane are truly free Politicians thrive With agendas where their brains should be. Where “dialogue” is shouted curses Wielded like dull-edged swords And our defense against this loud banality Our faces sunken into phones, terminally bored. We no longer slouch towards Bethlehem But think its existence is just fake news. The truth is no longer a solid thing But a clay molded with our views. I’ll not try to do what Didion did, I’ve neither the competence nor the need To walk around in different shoes In glasses smoked with weed. I’ll just erode in peace here dark While the world in every direction implodes to dust. The red of it not iron-based – Eternal quiet the only end to our distrust.
  • Etréstles asks oblation to the unfortunate of the World .. he asks to give his offering House that is not his house, to synchronize your departure to be in the company of Solitude, He does not have his sacred Cemetery before leaving for Nineveh ... He has disappointed himself of the Archpriest of Ayia Lavra for his strong telluric pains in his marble abdomen ... The holy oil that furrowed his forehead, furrowed his soul he has not recognized himself when his own umbilical nap has flourished a wafer of the Messiah who has traveled alongside him by the pavilions of Messolonghi in clarions rubies .. My father Staktos; come, I have not yet received the indulgence of abandoning what is not abandoned, I need to hear your voice from my sixth reincarnation playing on the roads of the oracles that illuminate the world, which is yours and the Messiah Choir on the Magdala heavens . Father I have not yet gone, and so many lives I have lived to see your distant face on grass barley resembling your breaths of late sunny spring celestial sermon sermons. But this time I want to cheer you beyond the imagination of eclectic anemia, with the aching pain descending through my impure heart. Nothing torments me more than to move away from the hells that do not know that I run through the prairies towards you without getting tired, imagining that I will fall into the neglect of your forgetfulness. I quickly lose my Laud from my right arm as a short-handed little fish, to commit the indiscretion of anticipating me to worship you with my dislocated left arm that carries the Harp from Lethe confiscated from Euterpe. Harmony that ignores Dinora in the false forests of Messolonghi in flames. You are my cobble who pierces the cries of my crucified hands, timbers of lymph incense next to the sweetness of your words that grew green in my dreams. Challenge with this interloquy of your incandescent soul, this is how The Last Temptation of Etrestles begins with its bleeding fingers, in the inflexible forgiveness of praising all those who want to dance with the mothers of the Shadows; that Staktos is his father, before reviving him and resuscitating him in his exodus to Nineveh, land hunched over by the Host, tortuous and artificial light shone from the recklessness of him who will make him sleep through the desert of life in farewell fantasies. Winds are felt singing whistles of hydrogen sulphide rocking from the edge of the cliff of the cloud, to fall on the shoulders of the timid death, False Blood, clumsy blood to wash my feet on Virgo and Jupiter in the sand. . Father, in purgatory, make the sounds of the new dawn without any detail or gesture of repentance. Thus Etrestles receives the Eucharistic host offering in his holy mouth and runs down the corridors of the great mysteries of the Nothing of good spirit of all Mantle. To be continue…
