at four AM
sorrows bathe
in silence
divided in halves
by a clock

One minute of happiness timidly
walked on by close to me
I did not recognize it
now I will be watching
every second

i don’t understand the killing
even for the price of hope
and dying i don’t understand
in the name of vague freedoms

how much there is to understand
in youthful boldness
and how much of memory of child’s play
in hide and seek
in piggy in the middle

real and comprehendible
is the cold of graves
in tears of those close

history hurts
