Contest Name:My Darkest Hour
My name:Valeria Iliadou
Rain is falling on my eyes
Rain is falling on my senses
In the middle of the night
In the middle of my darkest hour
Stand the detrited words I never said
The unpassable bridges of time
That is now passed, that is now vanished.
And I am waiting for the redemption
This small touch that is always late
Traveling on heaven's highway.
The wind is resting outside my window
The wind is resting outside my soul.
I have learned now to stop in front of a red light
To close emotions behind bars of steel.
And as time forgets and lets me go
I am here, in front of this fiery gate
With doors closed.
Dreams walked over me
Dreams seem to freeze in front of
Those unsaid words
Those lost smiles
Those deprived kisses.
And I know now it is so hard
To leave behind a blaze that could
Set on fire your dry earth
An ocean that could
Travel you to places only waiting for your step.
I believed in the oblivion
In the paradox of the unexpected
But at the corner life was waiting
To confute me.
The image of the lost dream
Brings me the pain I still try to endure
- A pain with components salt and sugar
Brings me a bittersweet flavor on the lips
The lips I will never taste again.
Into these rainproof silences
I am hiding from the merciless rain
Counting my empty hours.
Somebody has written the same words
Somebody has felt the same.
The Need of exodus.
Divided roads, separate channels
Through a course
Without a winner
Without a prize
Without an end.
The color of the rain
Will elevate us
Will make us reach the edge of a cliff
That we would fall together
That I fell alone.
I am looking at the night's emulsion
Expanding to the edge of the dark
While I can not set apart raindrops
This rain is washing out
Desires and secrets
The loud silences of my soul.
In my darkest hour
As time is laying beside me
Spreading my reflection to the world
Comparing a hell to a paradise
