Fara Glas by Simona Lazar

Fara Glas by Simona Lazar

Mări lascive / sunete cu gesturi lente
maschează câte un colţ de stâncă
în apele joase
tomuri de sare
se lasă răsfoite de meduze

umbre scormonesc
în coşul cu lenjerie fină
al cuvintelor-curcubeu

printre emoţiile toropite
golfuri înaintează fără glas

I Need You

I need you

I need you like the moon needs sunlight
To glimmer with hope in the night
I need you like the sky needs starshine
To sparkle with beauty and light

Yes, the moon could exist without sunlight
Invisible, lonely and old
As the sky could exist without starshine
Somber, brooding and cold
Claudia Moscovici, from The Painful Poignancy of Desire (2007)

Falling Leaves

Falling leaves

Leaves glittering in the sun

Fall upon me lightly, gently

A fire without warmth;

A life that is already dead.

They wink; they sparkle

Deceptively, as a palette of colors

Cheerfully sprinkles the earth

Only to be trampled upon;

To lose color and wholeness

Leaving no trace except

For the soft, inaudible, whisper

Of leaves decomposing in the night.

Traces of You

Traces of you

I trace the contours of your being upon the folds of life

I wrap you up into myself to stop the flight of time

I count the years and save each day we leave behind

You are the treasure I will cherish until the day I die

I see the gleam of happiness in your tired eyes

I close the blinds so only you can be my source of light

And in the dark when I’m alone I climb upon your rays

You are the sunlight I will seek until the end of my days

Patience Versus Tolerance

Patience versus Tolerance

Your indulgent smile, mixed with my tears

Makes me feel like a child burdened with years

You tease my emotions; you ease all my pain

And when you comfort me gently, you put me to shame.

Not a word of impatience; not a moment’s indifference;

Not a stroke of rejection, and that makes all the difference.

For I never want the shadow of tolerance, with its cold rationality

To displace your warm patience, and its light conviviality.

Cocoon

Cocoon

Underneath the soft folds

Protected from light

Protected from sight

I awake to new life

Through closed eyes I perceive

The darkness of warmth

The contours of dream

The scent that I know

The velvet I touch

The rhythm I feel

The comfort you give

The strength that I take

From that nourishing flow

Evanescent fantasies

Condense as emotions

In a torrent of passion

With moist lips I explore

The flower that grows

From the seed of our love

Stronger

Stronger

I know the force of habit

That makes each day seem the same

I sensed the sweet temptation

Of lovers without name

I felt the harsh indifference

Shower the coldness of fall rain

I have sensed time and distance

Lay memories to shame

I know the power of hatred

To destroy all the past

And to transform each memory

Into a regretful farce

But I promise you sincerely

In the name of all I love

That our feelings are stronger

Than everything I know
