A Homeland of A Size of Umbrella

A Homeland of A Size of Umbrella

A Homeland of a size of umbrella
You saw me in your dream
on the day I forgot my feet
and from the moment I am aware of the loneliness of my hands…
I am telling you about the curly streets of autumn.

…you saw me in your dream
on the night I burnt to ashes in a city of winds.
from the very moment I cast my eyes on a strange land
I call out to you from a dry leaf radio
…Listen, please!
There is just one station left to reach a place, empty, without you…
Your absence is like a bitter pill,
failing to soothe my grief.

…you saw me in your dream
in a gulp of cloud swallowed by me.
whatever a mirror reflects is just your absence…
Hair of my feelings turn white in your absence,
wisdom tooth of my feelings aches
as you go away…

In your absence, my feeling of missing is as much as a beggar
sitting by a wall
every step turns out a feeling of missing
in your absence…
No pitying the strange land I live in
Rather, spare a homeland of a size of umbrella in the rain, for me!
