PAIN IS FULL OF LIFE

PAIN IS FULL OF LIFE
© Farouk Asvat

     Pain is full of life.

Because memories last longer than dreams.

I did not expect
You to wait
For my dead body
To come to you:

Because pain is the colour of love

And death is transparent
If you know
The colour of hunger

[] Acı Hayatla Doludur

Turkish translation by © İlyas Tunç

Acı hayatla doludur
Çünkü daha uzun sürer hatıralar düşlerden.

Ummuyordum
Bekleyeceğini
Benim ölü bedenimin
Sana döneceğini:

Çünkü aşkın rengindedir acı
Ve saydamdır ölüm
Biliyorsanız
Açlığın rengini.
