Alone I lieWith the companion I love best:the night sky that vaults upand above and away to yonder. Work has robbed flesh of sleep,and the eyes remain awakewhere they should be inertperchance to viewthe sorrows of a love and a life gone coldamidst the increasingly heartless geriatricismof a world with no empathy left, now waiting for the night sky to...

It is a wise man who knowsthat childhood lasts forever;no matter how strong the heroor learned the sagethe child follows where the heart beatsfrom the moment it first came alive with bloodto the last day of life;it is a brave man who won't avoid his fearsbut learns to accept themfor all things appear more seemly when submerged in your heart.Not with feet, but...

Slowly, his fingers practisedly glidedCaressing, inspecting, then fondlingThe weapon His warrior-ancestors fashioned out of rosewood,Which he used to slay moonless nightsLike Saint George, like Durga, Or fabled Feridoun the Iranian dragonslayer. My eyes were mesmerised, As my eardrums itched in the hallowed silence. An eagle feather floated in the...

They only praise a man out of envy,  but seldom stand by as he falls;they think they see in me  a saint  so long as they never glimpse  scar and regretsmy tears. All these false smiles and assurances  are nothing but venom to my heart,each poisoned word of praise  drowns out the music I tried to sing.I smile, — but then  my...

O coração não tem sete anos. Já por nós têm passados setes anos de tudo a mortificação e  o desespero ; Já para cada noite nestes sete anos, chorei ao que o tempo  não pudesse esperar jamais ; Morrei, e eu murchei-mim para os projeitos da raça mortal ; rendidos futéis pelo saber do que  um coracão não possa viver para...

Over lands like a terrible colossus spanning the sea Strode Camillus with silver hosts.His sword glinted in his hand as he surveyed the land And at the van he bellowed, throwing down border posts  "All mankind belongs to me!" Like seething waves of semen and blood by brass borne  They rose to conquer and renew —The wise and strong when...
