How To Tell! Poem by Muharrem Soyek

How To Tell!



Would you hear my voice
If I cry in my verses?
Could you touch my tears
With your gentle fingers?

I never knew songs could be so beautiful
And words so feeble to show what I feel
Before falling in such a love with no future.

I know there's a place very near
Where you can say all you wish
So close I am, almost to be seen
But I have no mirror to mention my reflection...
