Poems by Tarana  TURAN RAHİMLİ

 

1. The distance between us

It is a five step from me to you,
But is a century’s way from you to me.
I am not so patient to wait for you
To come out of the history.

2. I am like an unforgotten island

I am like an unforgotten island
And you are a ship that lost its way.
I am a bit strange in this world,
And you are a bit sleepy.

My heart is the home of the longing,
These strange lands don’t smile at me.
I can recollect a tale
Which you can’t remember either.

You have come so proudly,
As if you are the sultan of my heart.
The ship that lost its way
Isn’t able to understand this island.
