everything about you is lonely

by Evelina Rudan


everything about you is lonely

you are alone and everything about you is lonely

while street-lights are shining bright

while people keep walking

while harmony of umbrellas is lost

and ants look in amazement

their houses vanish from sight

their hedge-fence being crushed down

 

you are alone and everything about you is lonely

regardless of what they say

regardless of one's whereabouts

and one's way of existence

you are alone and everything about you is lonely

your fear and your joy

your mornings and your shirt

that's drying

in this warm afternoon sun -

sun that is also lonely

and that will not make things easier for you

samo

sam si i samo je sve tvoje

dok lampe svijetle

dok ljudi hodaju

dok kišobrani gube ravnotežu

i mravi začuđeno gledaju

kako im je maklo kuću

i odnijelo živicu

 

sam si i samo je sve tvoje

štogod se pričalo

kamogod se kretalo

i kakogod se bivalo

sam si i samo je sve tvoje

tvoj strah, tvoja radost

tvoja jutra i tvoja košulja

koja se sama suši

na ovom toplom popodnevnom suncu

koje je isto samo

i koje ti neće olakšati
