Poems by Dorin Popa



I  free  myself  from  your  traps
and  I  happily  find  myself  in  your  traps

I  gradually  withdraw  myself  from  the  sea
but  my  soul  is  like  a  sea  during  the  tempest  now

how  slowly have  I  detached  myself  from  illusions  and  dreams
only to cry afterwards, often  upset  in  the  autumn

and  in  any  meeting  the  hopes  were  singing
with  mild  and  sad  tones  of  separation

a  clear  disorder  keeps  pushing  me
to  watch  over  the  whole  chaos  to  the  end

and  out  of  this  clean  débris  of  struggle
I  always  choose  a  pit  of  mud

defeated  and  decayed  by  this  life  of  mine
in  disgust, I  look  for  a  shelter  in  my  life

I  want  to  run  away, to  get  rid  of  delays
of  expectations,  of  spleen
but  I  find  only  delays

I  happily  free  myself  from  your  traps
and  I  find  myself  staggering  into  your  traps.



I  come  nearer  the old  age  and  I  keep  hiding
under  the  coat
my  whimpering like a  baby

God, I have always been behind  everybody!

melancholy  and  emptiness
my  well-being

impediments  and  hesitations
decide  for  me
together  with  my  fright
hope  comes  to  visit  me

one  more  century  in this world  should  I  live
and  I  wouldn’ t  have  enough  time
to  cry  my heart out over this  life
that  I  am  about  to  lose.
