The Duchess Portrait

There she is looking so pretty
She was the duke’s wife
My thirst for her is increasing
I lust for her as I look

But can I have her just to touch the edge of her garment?
Now, he comes roaring as usual even when the palace is silent
The memory of her death is my back
My stare at the picture has done no justice to bring her back now.

[Hata Bildir]
