Lyudmila Purgina (Russian Federation)
The shadow... again....
The shadow again ran out of me.
Au-u-u-u! Where are you? How can I live
Without shadow? I can't!
I'm searching you... I'm suffering...
But only the temples and columns around...
In one temple - the noble face,
But boring... strange...
What for is it to me?
Too national - in other temple,
Too folklore, even...
Where is the Shadow?
In the third temple -
There's no any face,
Which could hook me...
The former shadow has gone...
Where are you? I'm powerless...
The thousands of steps...
All to bypass... there will be no time...
