Born in the moment of self-pity,
Discovered in the search for luck,
When everything is too grey
Resembling the fog
Across the plains of my homeland in the fall.
Where shall you lower now in the foreign country
Where there is no fog of my homeland.
Silence in me
strikes in lightnings
of the sky too gray
and destroys my accumulated fear
in the years of non-belonging.
Silence in you
does not know my fears
and gets lost in words of
whose hands cannot
touch the softness
of our hearts.
Don’t let me stay silent
because my love is
louder than your smile.
The loudest one.
