Eros of Patience 2
“Cupido4b” by After Lysippos. Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons –

Patience! I told Her
in all of my impatience
in all of this longing
I longed to touch
every cell of Her body.

Patience! again
but no hearing at all
neither acceptance
she ran away
pain was the fear
the fear was the Fiery God

Michael Moustogiannis

Original Version of the poem “Eros of Patience”
written by Michael Moustogiannis


Υπομονή της είπα
μέσα στην τόση ανυπομονησία μου
μέσα σ’ αυτή την τόση λαχτάρα
που ‘χω για να αγγίξω
κάθε κύτταρο του κορμιού της.

Υπομονή ξανά
μα δεν το άκουσε
δε το δέχτηκε
κι έτρεξε προς πάσαν κατεύθυνση
πόνος ήταν ο φόβος
κι ο φόβος ήταν ο φλογερός θεός
ο Έρως

Εν Ιωαννίνοις
Μιχαήλ Μουστόγιαννης
