Poems in English

 

1)

 

She looked at me

     when she was listening to the moon

It seemed the moon

     was going to speak with her soon

Nothing happened!

I've waited for a long time

     since that majestic night

She left me alone

     when everything seemed to be alright

Nothing happened!

 

2)

 

The poem is the bullet

It kills the poet

In your absence…

3)

 

Montreal is Covered with snow

Tehran by smoke

We are still suspended on the distance rope

You are freezing cold in Tehran

I am dying from somke in Montreal!

4) 

Red roses are blooming on your lips, 
Golden dreams are shining on your hair, 
When I rest in the vast green field of your arms... 
You're the most colourful memory of the fall! ... 

 

5) 

 

Just a letter

is the cause of all my misery

'cause you like the "poeM"

but not its "poeT"!

6)

 

“Fall” might be your other name though…

For you I’ve shed all my leaves

But you’ll leave

And leave me alone in the hands of snow…

 

7)

 

A bag of pomegranates, hidden under the visitors's veil,

A slice of warm watermelon, behind the cold room’s bar,

A handful of pistachios, salted by tears' saltiness!

Leave me by myself,

Every night is too long for us! This night even a bit longer!

 

 

8)

 

 Come on! Do me a favor!

Shooting the last word is on you

I’ve already gone beyond my limit;

 long poems are not for the dead.

9) 

 

The silent white crystals, 
Settling down on the branches, 
So slow, so calm
Wipe out green smiles! 

10)

The train is coming
Could you hear
how wheels are kissing the rails? 
They will never know
That love which they've built
is destroying our dreams… 

11)

The silent white crystals, 
Settling down on the branches, 
so slow, so calm
Wipe out green smiles! 

12)

Red roses are blooming on your lips, 
Golden dreams are shining on your hair, 
When I rest in the vast green field of your arms... 
You're the most colorful memory of the fall!

13)

Walking through these gray streets alone, 
Thinking of you, in the best way I've known, 
I can see your sweet smile, 
Sparking in my mind for a while
No matter I'm here or there, 
Your eyes are shining everywhere! 

14)

Not like a regular summer day,
Depending on the sun's mood
Not like a dark winter night
Hidden under the moon's snood
I'm your everlasting song...
