Treasure Island

Amir Foroughi

(Tabriz)

Don't Fall Asleep


To my beloved and her lost grave
Uncanny
Emerald eyes of her over to save
Me, nothing more to be say
When she wept the cry of silence
Forgive me for all I was
Forgive me for all I shall not
Watt
Before the rut
Uncanny
Voices of all strings
Shattered in tornado
Tornado of blood
Blood of loss
Uncanny
No words
Words words words
I felt like the ghost of laura

    Hi,
    Impressive, Well done, Very very touching.
    Forgive me for all I was
    Forgive me for all I shall not
    I dont know why but It reminds me one of those poem that I read while passing university courses, Its name is C.L.M By John Masefield.
