To Write a Beautiful Poem

To Write a Beautiful Poem

No one told me to travel a thousand miles to write a beautiful poem,

Nowhere did anyone write that poetry can be created with a calm mind,

No one wished for me to blow a life jacket’s whistle while drowning in the sea of painful memories,

No one asked how scarred one must be to call this heart a ruin,

Perhaps it wasn’t necessary to break one’s heart to write a beautiful poem,

Nor was there a lazy urge to fall in love anew,

Or the stubbornness to embrace or the regret of not meeting for the last time,

Perhaps it wasn’t necessary,

If only we could go back to the old town; get soaked in the old field after class,

If only our hearts and the covering of memories could become innocent again,

Then, perhaps, a beautiful poem could be written once more.

Will you cry if I die?
And will you be able to fly?
With me in the sky,
Come lets try,

Will you ask me not to go?
Will you wait in the parking row?
Will you be the cup of tea?
I loved,
Will you hide all the caste?
And will you be the lonely chest?
I will hide inside of it,
Without hope,
Nevertheless I will ask you why,
Will you cry if I die?

I will leave all my memories,
Will you fold all the letters,please?
Never let you read the sorrow of it,
And I will not be in the same way,
Will you follow me till the day?
But never you try only to meet,

Will you hold the pain I aged?
Will you stay with me in the maze?
If I shout at loud will you be shy?
Will you pray without asking why?
Will you catch me If I say good bye,
Will you cry if I die?
