Best Poem of Nichita Stanescu

Of Love

She remains bored and very beautiful
her black hair is angry,
her bright hand
for ages now has forgotten me, -
for ages too has forgotten itself,
hanging as it has from the neck of a chair.
In the lights I drown myself,
set my jaws against the coursing of the year.
I reveal my teeth to her
but she understands this is no smile-
sweet, illuminated creature
she reveals myself to me while
she remains bored and very beautiful
and for her alone I live
in the appalling world
of this inferior heaven.
