Post Poem: A Solo for Me

A Solo for Me

You entered my humble room
With buds yet to flower
Brought here to bloom?
I sing a last song
To my old soul in gloom
And you come along,
To garland my room?

Descendant of Eve,
Deadly nutrition,
Speak your name and leave!
Your name is damnation
And bottomless abyss
Slit your dense darkness,
Let me leap in bliss.

And then you told me,
With glittering eyes
What was it, so soft, so balmy,
So enticing, yet hard to surmise?
I still do not apprehend,
And that night, onto sunrise,
I cried at no end.

And that word, unspoken,
That tear, never obvious,
That searing stare, ever unshaken,
That bouquet of narcissus
Incarcerated my soul
In a frame of darkness
My doleful soul.

You left in sadness
Towardswhere?
Heart full of emptiness,
And a dusky stare
If already up there,
From the star of my darkness
Look down and spare.



Rouben Sevak
1911
