Isolated


The leaves rustle
in the gentle touch
of the wind,,
and your figure there.
Among the whispers
of the night and
the moonlight.
I am listening the wind
talking for you,
for your life.
I take a deep
breath. I feel you
everywhere, inside me.

The way you smell,
numbs my sore
mind. Everything
ends there.
At the point where
the mirrors of
our souls meet
and the one feels
the loss of the other.
And then darkness, silence,
isolation
And me? I gaze at
our dreams from
the without windows cell
of your prison.

Original version of the poem “Isolated”
written by Nikoleta Vemvetsou

Τα φύλλα θροΐζουν
στο απαλό άγγιγμα
του ανέμου,,
και η μορφή σου εκεί.
Ανάμεσα στους ψιθύρους
της νύχτας και στο
φως της σελήνης.
Ακούω τον αέρα
μου μιλάει για σένα,
για τη ζωή σου.
Παίρνω μια βαθιά
ανάσα. Σε νιώθω
παντού, μέσα μου.
Η μυρωδιά σου,
ναρκώνει το πονεμένο
μου μυαλό. Όλα
τελειώνουν εκεί.
Στο σημείο, όπου
οι καθρέφτες των
ψυχών μας συναντιούνται
κι ο ένας νιώθει
την απώλεια του άλλου.
Μετά σκοτάδι, σιωπή,
απομάκρυνση.
Κι εγώ να αγναντεύω
τα όνειρά μας από το
δίχως παράθυρα κελί
της φυλακής σου.
