THE POEM OF BEING LONELY

They don't know,
Those who don't live alone,
How frightening is
Soundlessness;
How a person talks to himself,
How he runs to mirrors,
Hungry for a soul,
They don't know it.

Orhan Veli (Translated by Murat Nemet-Nejat, 1989)

BEBOPCOWBOY said...

eeeh si kam pare poezite e tjera. rrofsh per linqet.

une vdes per starboksin sepse si insomniac vdes per kafen dhe ata kane kafe shume te mire. Ate qe e kane e kane. Gjene e dyte te mire tek ata (te pakten ne amerike dhe ne ishujt me gjelberim te perhershem te evropes perindimore) eshte muzika. kane gjithmone musike jazz te perkryer. por kane dhe staff cool ne fakt.

Blogu? Teoria e evolucionit eshte e vlefshme dhe per blogospheren. Seleksionimi natyral mo. ca ti bosh he.
