Requiem - Poem by Niko Tiliopoulos

That night seemed ethereal,
as if time hadn’t met her,
and a girl stood silently
among the street’s shadows of pain.

The word of the hour finished too soon
and her cries vanished in the sewers.
Which God’s was she a make?
Who placed her in the cosmic laws?

Deception – All her life danced in
Deception – All her dreams were fed with
Deception.

There must me a crack
to slide through,
to escape,
to be saved…

Between the bushes she touched the earth
and shivered as she felt her beat.
She got scared when the rain’s licking
silenced the nature’s rhythms.

That night was dressed in slumber
as a blue light painted that girl in white
and scattered her in the chaos of the legends
when her smile met the stars.

Deception – All her life danced in
Deception – All her dreams were fed with
Deception.

There was somewhere a crack
that she slid through
and escaped,
but she thought she would be saved…
