Audio-Poetry: I will

Poetry by Vladimir Fischer

“What else can I say…”

I couldn’t end it,
yet I could have helped you,
but the air was stuck inside my lungs
unable to sharpen the word
my old rusty sword.  

What else can I say
when I constantly fail
grande tristeza
are my name and a medal
that I wear on my sleeve
on the eve of the mortal infliction. 

You saw that because I showed you that,
and yet you grabbed me, now holding tightly,
seeing something I was blind to,
just seeking love and care to share. 

I couldn’t end it,
but eventually, I will,
If you believe in me, I will. 

Poetry by Vladimir Fischer
