We were not created for each other / Poem by  Tarana Turan RAHIMLI

 
Poem by  Tarana Turan RAHIMLI
 
 
We were not created for each other
 
We are human beings of two different worlds,
It is dark in one world, it is light in other one.
Two different hearts, two different opinions,
We were not created for each other.
 
My wishes are like sailless ship,
Your waves can’t push me.
This love may become a grief like a parting,
We were not created for each other.
 
I don’t want the heat of love scorch you
I can’t bear the flames of love.
Who heard summer and winter united?
We were not created for each other.
 
I think all people on my way are angels,
But for you all people around you are tricksters.
What is the use of deceiving yourself?
We were not created for each other.
 
Each of us has different spirit, let’s not be divided
Let’s not shove each other on the train of life.
Let’s not set a road the end of which is seen beforehand
We were not created for each other.
