Love Stop

Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving,
See the difference,
See the pain.
Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving,
Don’t let me stiffen,
Break the chain.

Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving.
I know you’ve never
Learnt grammar rules.
Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving.
Be forever
No more than you.

Nine-Days Flower (to Lady Jane Grey)

Look back into dusty past.

July brought two queens in a row:
After the Twain hero died,
Naming Jane for the regal role,
Enemies were not to hide.

Glued to dreams of crown and power
Ready came the Bloody Mary.
End of life of a nine-days flower.
You have found it all too scary…

Without Umbrella

Yes, sure, I left your home without umbrella,
According to the rules of story-tellers.
My first kiss – the blue lips of late October,
Not yours, thanks God. I’m cured of you. I’m sober.

I’m running free of you, free of deceivers,
Risking to catch a cold and have a fever,
All soaking wet to skin and bones, and trembling.
At least you’re being washed off me, sad ending.

The passers-by are feeling deeply sorry
For me, the girl whose eyes seems strangely worried.
In fact, I am excited to begin it –
A new life where you are no more the limit.

You’ll stick it in the thrash-bin – my umbrella,
According to the rules of story-tellers.
I’m drinking from the lips of late October,
I’ve never tasted yours, thanks God. I’m sober.

A Rainy Quarrel

I know that something went wrong yesterday night
And you urged me to get out of your sight,
I almost obeyed as your eyes promised no good –
One more word from me – and you were ready to shoot…

But ’cause it’s likely to rain
Today
Again
I wish I could just remain
Today
Again
By your side
And despite
Your unbreakable pride
You could let me stay
Today
Again

Girls are like that – their green eyes promise no good,
But in a moment or two there is loads of food
And they hope cooking will win our hearts back again,
And they are so damn right especially when there is such rain.

Because it’s likely to rain
Today
Again
I wish I could just remain
Today
Again
By your side
And despite
Your unbreakable pride
You could let me stay
Today
Again

Nathalie (Insulted Pride)

Sue explaining to me what I should say to Nathalie after Jack has done something wrong:

No doubt – she’s been too proud
And too insulted to forgive.
Try crying to persuade
He loves her more than they both live.

My pessimistic observation:

Again, the task of friends
Looks like a hard deed to fulfill,

My passive conclusion:

I better withdraw now.
End of the love they both had killed.

Scarlet and Black

You never were the one to understand my pain,
To shield me when I was standing out in the rain.
I was too proud to ask, I was too proud to call,
‘Cause who are you to me, after all?

Sending scarlet fire in the black sky…
But the stars I want to burn are too high.
Scarlet love, black remorse – all together now,
Oh how I wish I could fix it all – just tell me, how?

I never dared to throw my arms around your neck,
But when you were leaving, I kept on looking back.
You never realised you loved me deep inside,
But kept a thought of me every night…

I know there’s still a hope lying on dusty street,
Lost there by other fools who’re just like you and me.
Look down – I know it is lying right at your feet,
Take it – and maybe you’ll admit I’m all you need.

It was long ago I realised you were mine
And the days without you did not feel fine,
Do confess now that you’ve loved me all along,
So that we can put a happy ending to this song.

Sending scarlet fire in the black sky,
Feeling almost as if I was ready to fly,
Black remorse over now, scarlet love to bloom
Hopefully, as far as calling you my bridegroom…
