Date and Fate
Date and Fate
The appointed date was coming
and I had prepared every thing beforehand.
At last the waiting ages would be over
and the sweet fragrance of infallibility
which had filled the space,
had the lovely news of my beloved arrival.
My lily emotion flower was playing with stars
which were smelling the aroma
of my scarlet-fresh thoughts,
and I could touch their enviable heartbeats.
My fantastic bliss was face to face me; but
I didn't know how to behave and what to say.
What affecting word had I to be put in advance?
Which one of my complaint-chilly stories
should be narrated?
How could I express my desires and requests?
What would I..? Which could I..? How did I..?
I was surrounded by wordless words; but
a horrible state was taking place meanwhile.
I wasn't confused but petrified.
My stony brain was barren of decision.
I looked like an icy statue in a frozen territory
full of emptiness; but
I felt a sincere warm healing stroke of sympathy
in my iceberg's heart.
A little lantern had been activated in me.
Who hanged it from my ice-covered feeling tree?
When was it put and turned on?
who implanted it in my drought parting centuries?
Maybe I had been sentenced to life by my beloved
and in this manner I was lanterned(!) to death.
I don't know; but when I opened my eyes again
I saw myself in a worse condition,
In an addled place,
among a collection of rotten dead bodies.
I was drowning in a fetid lake
and my mouth was full of decayed crocodiles.
Was I dreaming? No, it was a realistic world.
Oh fate, what did you do to me?
What was my mistake in the previous date?
The lantern was reviewing and correcting
my errors now and then, specially
from Tuesday evenings to Wednesday mornings
which was our new date.
How this new meeting time was appointed?
Who knows? but the lantern was more bright
and sensitive at these mysterious nights.
Wasn't this night the sixth day of creation?
I wouldn't understand these metaphysical words
of the lantern; but
I learned a fact from the lantern's existence:
A lover should be a lantern,
silent, bright, and without any request.
A lover should have many words to hear
but any to say.
All of the lovely words of a lantern can be
only a hello and nothing else.
My lantern is now waiting for for the new
Date and Fate.
