Me And The Word Kissing On The Lips


© Jeton Kelmendi

Albania - Belgium

With the view of the day you attacked in me

With only you I just confronted you
In the lap of my age I always wait
With my lips I kiss the word on hers
We see each other in our eyes

My flower

The aroma of my taste
A day filled with nature
Just like your curly hair

Like your lips

Like the moon
That whitens the night

A bulb of the season

My flower
My Spring


Your Face With Golden Eyes Is Appearing

© Jeton Kelmendi


Today autumn can get full with the night

The moon fell in the window

The best

Verses
I will write for you

Maybe you are asleep

My best lady friend

Before you reached

Ten and ten
I sing for the verse

The word has plenty of night


The clock

Passed midnight

The sky descended on verses

And in the sparseness of the stars
Your face is appearing
With Golden Eyes

Just like in ancient times

“From that ridge I threw my eyes to you”.
