I EMBRACED NIGHT AROUND MY BODY - By Linda Dervishi


I EMBRACED NIGHT AROUND MY BODY 

GATHERING ITS BLACK COLOUR

Sweetening its wet darkness

I said to it: yours, is a black magic

DRIPPING GOLD AND NOSTALGIA

DRIPPING OF LONGING, YEARNING

Tears for my breasts

I set down on a field

FULL OF FIREFLIES

Gathering them under my hands

Unleashing them on my hairs

I CLOSED MY EYES

DREAMING OF MOMENTS

THE MOON WAS HIDDEN

I couldn’t see the edges of a star

I folded my arms and I experienced life

SINCE I WAS BORN

SINCE I FIRST WALKED

SINCE I FELL

SINCE I WAS HAPPY 

SINCE I LIVED OTHER LIVES

SINCE I GREW UP

Woman like a sea

That comes and goes

Woman like a wave

Splashing on rocks
Woman as an amorphous

Often swallowed by hollowness    
Over loosing myself
WOMAN LIKE ME

MELTING OVER EACH SUFFERING

EACH BREATH THAT IS A

FEELING AND A KISS

I kissed the night’s black eyes

Pouring its dew

Drop by drop on earth

Seagull’s wings peregrination

THE MORNING WAS POURING

WET PETALS OF HOPE

OF RED NIBBLES

Breaking over sunrays

Oh, so sensually…

Mblodha natên pêr trup
Ia mora ngjyrên e zezê
Terrin e lagesht ia êmbêlsova
I thashe :-je magji e zeza jote
Piklon ar e nostalgji,piklon mall
E lot pêr gjinjtê e mi!..
E u ula nê njê fushê mbushur
Plot me xixêllonja,..
I mblodha tufê ndêr duar e flokêve ua lêshova
Mbylla sytê e per ¢aste êndêrrova
Hêna ishte fshehur,asnjê cep ylli nuk shikoja
Mblodha krahêt e jetên time pêrjetova
Qe kur kam lindur
Qe kur kam ecur
Qe kur jam rrëzuar
Qe kur jam gêzuar
Qe kur kam jetuar nê tê tjera jetê
Qe kur u rrita
E tashmê qê jam grua
Grua si det qê shkoj e vij
Grua si dallgê qê perplasem shkembinj
Grua si amforê e boshêsia shpesh mê perpin
Nê pêrhumbjet e vetvetes,..
Grua si unê qê shkrihet nê ¢do pikê vuajtje,
Nê ¢do frymê qê eshtê ndjenjê e puthje ...
Ia putha sytê e zi natês e gjithê vesa iu derdh
Pikê per pikê tokês e krahê pulêbardhash nê shtegtim ,..
Mêngjesi kullonte shpresênjomur petaleve tê kuqe tê mêllagave
E kêputej rrezes sê diellit, oh,sa sensualisht,..
