Melancholy / Malinconia / Melancolie

Trilingual text: English, Italian and Romanian language

Between hopes and illusions we do often confusion
Despotic, the shoes, us runs quickly there where they want
and anywhere they would go, is an impetuous astray
the ,,Nowhere,, is becoming an ,,at home,, the desert more intimate
we want to know what face we will have today, but
only the tears wash the mirrors, not the smile, and the muffled weeping refuses us
we must deserve, somehow, even your own tear


Tra speranze e illusioni facciamo spesso confusione
Dispotico, le scarpe ci portano di corsa, dove loro vogliono
e dovunque andrebbero, c’è un impetuoso vagare
il ,,Da nessuna parte,, sta diventando un ,,a casa,, e il deserto più intimo
voliamo sapere che viso abbiamo oggi, ma
soltanto le lacrime lava gli specchi, non il sorriso, e il pianto smorzato ci rifiuta
dobbiamo meritare, in qualche modo, anche… la propria lacrima


Între speranțe și iluzii facem adesea confuzie
Despotici, pantofii ne aleargă iute doar unde vor ei
și încotro ar lua-o este o razna impetuoasă
Nicăieri începe să devină un acasă, pustiul mai intim
Am vrea să știm ce chip mai avem astăzi dar
Lacrima spală oglinzile, nu surâsul, și plânsul mocnit ne refuză
Trebuie cumva să meriți până și… propria-ți lacrimă

  1. So you liked my post which you didn’t actually read. That sucks.


    • I have gone through health woes and found healing in the love of my loved ones that I have been very close, treatment is always there in of ourselves, care of the soul heals the body, but you already know


  2. ‘…only the tears wash the mirrors, not the smile…’ – beautifully expressed, profound and so true, Valeriu. There is, I think, great pressure upon us to present the smile, the cheer; but, sometimes, the open wound, the track of tears, is a far more honest statement to the Wasteland. Ali x


  3. Great art! Many thanks for stopping by my blog again. You’re invited to come back on Friday for a free flash fiction story.
