Halsho Zangana (27-Jan-1994 / Kurdistan - Sulaimani)
You Delay The Down
Always waiting faced the gate
that you might break through,
yet you delay the dawn.
There is not a vent in the walls,
not even a window to give
some capacity to this trapped life.
I know the other side is not as it's promised,
but it lightens the heaviness of breathing.
It carries away the attraction of pain.
Comforts your mirage, but never you.
