Poetry

Night Does Not Fall

Translated from Greek
Night does not fall nor does it come

Night
does not fall
nor does it come
 

Night slowly
breaks within me
 

Because I am a lake
ever faceless
and I am mud
in the dreams of secret
stars
 
So night
no longer falls
nor does it come
night takes leave
like a good
guest

Night

nor does it come
 

Night slowly
breaks within me
 

Because I am a lake
ever faceless
and I am mud
in the dreams of secret
stars
 
So night
no longer falls
nor does it come
night takes leave
like a good
guest
