Politics and LovePost-Soviet suburbs, Post-Soviet blocks,I’m surrounded by gray rocks,I only gain the writer’s block.On my heart there are thousands locks,For none of them I found the key,Though I want to break free!Not many understand my words,Even less need them,Hatred and love at the same time feed them.To a fearsome battle I want to dive,But for you only I stay alive!What if you me deny?Do not worry, I won’t ask “why?”I’ll turn away and say “goodbye”And give my soul to the sacred sky!I do not care what people think,Between us I feel a bound, I feel a link,But there’s little or no hope at all:In a fight I will fall,When the war is declared,And when the might of my heart to a bullet is compared!Politics and love cannot together be,From the start I did not this see!Still, to you my pen belongs,For you I write poems and songs!To this dark and cruel realm you brought colors,Though I’m tied by ropesAnd target
* * *I’m not the only one, who is after your heart,Many other knights are ready for you to fight,Their armor and weapons shine like sunlight!They want to rip each other apart! I’m just a poor poet from East,No, I’m not a wild beast!I have no armor, I have no swords,I have my pen, I have my chords! Many rivals are ready to chop me,But they should know they cannot stop me,Because I’m already defeated,My services are nowhere needed. For you only my pen writes,My piano for you only composes!Of course, my gifts are not beautiful as roses,But they come from within and that's what matters!
ConclusionNo one ever felt what I feel,No one ever feared what I fear.What goes on deep inside my heart?Nobody cares, nobody knows. Words from inside me broke through,They are known to all: “I love you”I wander around searching you,It is meaningless, you’re nowhere near! But I got nothing else to do! For an eternity I am left alone,My future is in a white mist gone,And as you all see, I sit around and moan!In this World I never shone,And never will I shine! Love causes the corrosion of my soul!The day is soon, my rivals, soon I will fall!I will turn in to a burned coal,The wind will blow away my ashes. I cannot change my cursed path,No, it’s not just simple math,It is her beauty and it’s eternal,Though the flame that burns me is infernal.
DoomedWe don’t understand what it means to live,We must pay the price because we breathe.Everyone knows what pain is,Everyone knows what is sorrow,They can await us even tomorrow,But no one cares for tears,Our hearts were carved from stones,From metal were forged our bones,We do not know the misery of our friends,We throw them away and their life ends.There is no happiness for you and me,To dissolve in to dust is our destiny!We have no aims anymore,To the future we shot the door!Everything that seemed bright,Has turned in to darkness,With no hope of light!Past victories lost their meanings forever,It will never be the same, never!
