We Will Descend, The City Is Not Far - Poem by Cyrus Mahan

This night is not going to sleep
You are not going to come
And I
I have no strength to leave.

But I,
I will leave
Even though the moon will burst out in my face.
Even though the moon
Reveals the unexposed.

And the stars,
With the deceiving blinks of their eyes
And a perking glimpse and peeling peeps of their glances
Are not deceiving me.

But you
You will come
With your tong burned in the salty rain
You will come
With prevalent nodes
That yes,
It could be done.


The dawn is not going to come
You!
You are not going to come
And I
I have no strength to leave.

But I will leave
And you will come
And the blistering rain
Will pour on the Elburz mountain
And the whole night it will pour

In the daybreak of the trees and the stones
You will grab your peace
And we will descend
The city is not far.

May 1999
