Martyrdom

This is an English translation of my poem “Μαρτυρία“. You can also find it in its original form in my Greek poems category. Thank you all for the support and stay safe!

A statue with broken hands and a sad smiling face, standing alone in an abandoned building.
It was beautiful, out there
we were falling in love
we were sucking
the marrow of life

It was beautiful, out there
we lived in the war cry of glow

But who has regrets down there,
who drags the tar of nightmare?
*

We breathe out another nature
The indistinguishable
                                     identity
The enigma of times
of eons

Like parts of a troupe, the jesters
groan while they laugh,
to divide the audience

And he alone, as if in a dream
smiles to the strangers
                                       the crimson ones
who, drawing blood, enjoyed life
and in blood they will lie,
                                           fearless

And I at the end I watch
with breath, deep
I follow the spirit
                              into oblivion
I await the euphoria
*

Right at the pause

There in this pause I remain;
