The Red Sunset - Poem by Anahita Tahmasbi

After the red sunset
An eerie darkness ensues
Blood is no longer
Life no longer
A miracle
East and west unite
In pain
And the conscience whispers to each soul
Ego, is the enemy

    Can then Death be our ally? For only in death will our souls, East and West... become as one.
    Truly a great Write Anahita, You have the wisdom of a great Philospher, the beauty of a princess.

    A deep poem and it's hard to give a simple concept of it. Yet, in my point of view after the sunset the life begins, the day ends and the sacred night borns. The night in which so many things happen, weird and usual. You also may meant death, as I mentioned above, it's a deep poem. (Report)Reply
