Treasure Island

Max Kuvaev

(14/03/1974 / East Siberia)

Break The Bells

don't talk
don't talk
the fury calls
quit it now and let it fall
walk away
erase your your name
and never forget your pain
never fall in love again

be cruel
be cruel
the fury yells
slam the door
and break the bells
do it now
you must vow
always to remember pain
never fall in love again

always the same mistake
stuck at an endless take
everything i touch
is a mirage

don't think
don't think
the fury cries
seal your mouth
and close your eyes
and i make
a promise to break
never to forget my pain
never fall in love again

    it is so sing-song but the images are so serious. A little like Poe. I love the last lines, acknowledging that you'll break that promise because we always do. Very clever, as always. (Report) Reply

    It is strange, do we all give these promises...Probably yes, but you managed to create a wonderful poem of it. Excellent work! (Report) Reply

    Just the idea of the breaking of bells is very powerful. One associates bells with civilization and peace, the breaking of bells with turmoil and war. To be in that moment when bells are broken, that is a significant experience. A very moving poem. (Report) Reply
