POEMS by Ndue Dragusha


(With immense sorrow)

I don't know if you've read Dante Alighieri,

I don't know what books you've read,

But I learned that you, sister,

Hell itself you lived,

Ever since you gave love to the devil.

That was your path in this life

With demons by their side,

no one would have a future.

You will rest in peace today in Paradise

For the land of wicked Cains is.

There are so few Abelli left on earth,

That hands as clean as the sun have,

But the world of Cains mocks us,

With vampire teeth and a burning soul!

Today, all the eyes of the world shed tears,

In their tears your new face speaks...

Your face that shone among the flowers today,

And the murderer's filthy crawling face killed.


In you I found the deep sea with waves,

In you I found the magic of love,

In you I found intimate depths

For in every cell, there was a surprise.

I became an explorer of that deep sea,

To take such a delicate risk overhead.

In depths you shone like a pearl to me,

At night you shimmered, frightening in bed.


The walls are silent,

dripping with pain.

The shadow of your dress pours into the corner of the room

(it still carries the scent of your body).

A light breeze blows outside,

sending messages through the night to the moon,

deep in thought,

Clouds limp through the dark alleys of my city.

In these moments,

I see what you don't,

I see the silent seagulls of pain, swimming in the blue milk of the sky.

Tongues of silence lick my body,

I feel only the pain on the roads of the map made by your lips...

The night speaks to itself in a coded language

of the wind that crashes against the walls of my silence.

When you’re missing...
