    Welcome! This is my comment on yur 1st Poem here ('For that, Marcus Aurelius, whenever you...')

    'to the sages of the ages'

    from your note - - and an interpretive key in the same time,

    as Imperator Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus was not just an emperor (a good one, as historians tell us) , but also an important stoic philosopher.
    'Do not act as if thou wert going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over thee. While thou livest, while it is in thy power, be good.' - from his remarkable work 'Meditations' (Τὰ εἰς ἑαυτόν)

    And so, here we have a philosophical and poetic meditation from you on human nature.. Not bad at all for the first lyric you've posted on PH, Leila. Good.
    Keep on writing and thanks for sharing!

    P.S.: a big CIAO from Italy :)

Best Poem of Leila Samarrai

The Darkness Will Understand

In the bed I do not rely on commandments
The roses already fraught with wind
How many clocks do you ask
While the morning overladen with eternity is late
Delirium morning

They foresee the end of the world
Through star gates
They will wish to open them, open them they will not be able to
They will wish to close both them and the road
The poems shall herald the dead
The dead and the living will depart for false mouth
Without a single sense

My God sleeps murmuring prayers
After which I inherit sadness, wind, mountains, birds
Yet hands and ...

Scream And Whisper

May the screams echo. After that
The silence will stumble like a whipped wild horse;
A moment pilled inside the throat
Overpowers the yowl and endless wind
That whimpers down the roads of land we are condemned to

In a deaf room, in a deaf night, by deaf ears
The scream in my throat is anchored
To the howling whisper.
