Comments about Serkan Engin
Ghazal To Pera Belle
love is now torn paper, thin, sea-blue and missing
never ask haunting hazel eyes why this heart longs
life has destroyed us while spreading-skies thinned letters
limping birds bleed loneliness onto sheet music
now razors scratch my dreams into this ruined wall
how could i know this much disappointment, now hushed
vague poems are my rubies, these alms won me grace
my jumbled days stammer, though their spinning brings change
now my skin is an unryhmed verse without your hands
never ask haunting hazel eyes why this heart blazes
