To Feel Empty Space Poem by Hasan Haskovic

To Feel Empty Space

Rating: 5.0

The place from where I came
Beneath the silence and the blame
Has stood upon the barren plain
Of my wanderings, of my shame

In the hours
I grew reckless
Eaten away by narrowed time
Discerned by bones hollow
Only by devouring grime

Always shown my own teeth
To the horrors the night concealed
But with days things would go brighter
The embers of fear would be revealed

Everything clinging
To the emptiness of worlds between
Without contempt with singing
Themes of old faiths and lost gleam
To try and find
The stone of will on which we are to grind
Mountains and forests
To make room for empty words
On an empty world

And you'll see me
Slightly leaning
On the pillar
Of true meaning
With the fire I will come
In the flames just to benumb
Your heart, where my life came from

In the scribbles
Of passing nights
This is a testament
To all my rights
In the darkness
Of ink and an honest word
I demand the things I deserved

In the emptiness
Of my own journal
I devote this life
To our love eternal

Volim te. Your dearest [3
