Ahmet Yalcinkaya Poems
time was yellow at that day like a leaf and the woman gave birth to betrayal pure of mother-of-pearl so shown
if you name your hair a rope whip my soul with it tighten my neck i am willing
Longing For You Suffices I Cannot Say Co...
I cannot say come to you I cannot call you while I am like you I do not call you from climates far away before fears
Write My News To Your Agency
i lost my mind since the moment i have seen you i found me a way go and go
I come every morning to the beginning of this street thinking that you will pass from here I wait, wait, and wait…
I come every morning to the beginning of this street
thinking that you will pass from here
I wait, wait, and wait…
when you are seen from far
my heart does not fit to its cage,
tulips bloom in me…
an inexplicable warmth embraces my body
I burn from top to toe…
