a cry towards the absurd

The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.Camus

just imagine yourself in 5 years time...here what happens then.The Time

Tik-tak is the name of the day
With the time like an almighty giant passing away
And you even don’t know how to stop it,
But to engrave the moments you
Hate to abandon within something
Called memory…
Deep, deep, deep inside of this
Surreal, vague, and overfilled
Storage of events, feelings, and plans,
For today, the day after tomorrow,
And for the coming January…
But even there, in you most precious,
Most private, most sacred ownership,
The Time pitilessly mixes the images of the people
You used to love with
The most trivial relationships,
The experiences of divine inspiration
With the most routine ones…
Thus, engraving getting less and less distinct
And you should know how much I hate
To lose you there
Already twice…

November, 2002.
