Nostos and Algos

Posted: 19/06/2022 by vequinox in Literature


Like an ancient

repeatedly hymned sin

your body that I crave

to re-explore

gleams in my mind

like that first time

under the shade of the olive tree

jealous, sophisticated,

eternal wisdom staring

and softly whispering

yes, yes


Σαν πανάρχαιη ποθημένη αμαρτία

το κορμί σου

που λαχταρώ

να ξαναχαϊδέψω

λάμπει στη θύμησή μου

σαν κείνη την πρώτη φορά

κάτω απ’τον ίσκιο της ελιάς

που απαλά ψυθίριζε

ναι, ναι
