Against Your Eyes

Image
Against your eyes my eyes are sightless, Your soul, an impenetrable gloom, In your dark gaze a subtle lie, Hiding you always a fine shroud… 
Closed is your heart and remote to me, Tied forever to you yet a stranger too. With insane pleasure I dote on you And I love you and I don’t know you.
Closed is your heart and remote to me, Against your eyes my eyes are sightless, Hiding you always a fine shroud, Who are you? Who? — I never know…




Translated from Armenian By Armineh Amirian Zohrabian Poem by Vahan Derian

Burry Me When...

Image
Burry me, when the last red twilight fades When the dying suns’ caresses Sets the silvery mountaintops ablaze, When land and sea are lost in darkness.
Burry me when the gloomy dusk is falling, When the joyous  sounds of the day are hushed When the sunbeams die, flowers slumber When hills and fields vanish in darkness
Scatter wilting flowers on my grave so they die in serenity and peace Burry me without tears without words Silence, silence, endless silence.
