Alexander Arnaudov – Flower of Oblivion

Light is found between the two hearts that are both yours. We let the flood of memories drown us in silence. We have only the stars and our wish for each other. More about the mechanism of life in Alexanders’ first translation of his poems found in the publications of the magazine „New Asocial Poetry“.

 

лъв

leo

the words
I love you
breathe beneath the same sky
with us
I lead
I cut
I tangle
the strings
of stars
above our cage

 

потоп

flood

your love
cleared the color of blood
and drowned
in the eyes
of the blind

 

изцеление 

healing

I dream to be
the flower of oblivion
the sun
that burns
the water
that drowns
unison from which I grow
forever
so you can destroy me again

 

зима

winter

the first snowflakes fall
and melt
but our love does not
only you fall

 

машината за живот

the mechanism of life

I dance
with words
left
in unwritten books
before I learn
to read

 

смисъл

meaning

gunshot
silenced from the fatherly voice
like a prayer
opens the cage
of the firstborn
that stopped counting
the years
after his death

 

вълк

wolf

behind the raging
roar
of a predator
trembles the prey
of the heart
it has been written
forever
choke on me –
howling corpse
with your voice

 

вихър

whirlwind

I travel far
the veins of the wind pulse
the pupil is a broken compass
that saw beauty
south from the heart
in the eye of the storm

 

сводник

pimp

the hunter targets
his breath
stopped
in the flight of a butterfly –
the last name
of his sin

 

риби

pisces

I

we slide
on the surface
separated
I am melting
while you are with him
I won’t stop
pushing
two hearts
crash
like a mother
loving her son
while she drowns him
in baptismal water

II

call me
before you drown
let me tell you
one last time
that I love you
lets feed
the earth
under the skin
and lets meet
beyond the heart

 

заради теб
because of you
I will walk barefoot
on the sun
to feel
the earth beneath your feet

 

дълбочина

depth

death is foretold
from the ring
of a drowning girl
that chose
to draw the world
with her parents

 

химн

anthem

angelic voice
erased
human from humanity

 

любов

love

when all the stars fall
from the sky
we will wish
for each other

 

светлина

light

you have two hearts
one is sunset
the second – sunrise
you are
in-between
