Attila Ilhan translations
Ben Sana Mecburum
by Attila Ilhan
translation by Nurgul Yayman and Michael R. Burch

You are indispensable; how can you not know
that you’re like nails riveting my brain?
I see your eyes as ever-expanding dimensions.
You are indispensable; how can you not know
that I burn...Read More

Configuring The Heart


On the splendorous crown of my heart
shimmering in the cerulean night
you gleamed with the sequins of moon.
I tried to feel your sapphire touch,
but you glided away out of my sight,
across my sky I had carved for you.

In the verdant vale...Read More

Premium Member Nostalgia
On the meadow green near the river Avon,
deep in thought, I stood leaning on  a tree,
Golden Sun rays went painting the town,
When I saw a singing boatman sail past me.

Water rippled and splashed about his oar,
As he stroked the...Read More

Clouded Love Slam
A hex,
A spell of dark magic
In witches cauldron to stir

Not for death
But rather to suffer well

In this life not the afterlife

For crimes against my broken heart
that brought me to this place

I wish 7 decades of bad luck you trace

Premium Member TELL ME AGAIN

My heart was pounding,
My breath catching,
I saw you sitting there,

You looked my way,
Our eyes kissed,
I was already falling,

You took me home,
You gave me roses,
The smell of your cologne,

My perfume,

Our lips met,
My mouth smiled,
I was falling,

You showed me patience,
I showed you...Read More

Smother
Hate's got its benefits
Each party going their seperate way
Where partly knowing their's is best

When all is lost to each and all
for coming back together
for what was lost to righteousness
when each was sure to plether

Down the Primrose Path
Down on the primrose path,
I turned to look at you,
With spring in the bloom,
flowers of love were bloomed

I kissed your primrose lips
touch felt your velvet skin
and down on the primrose path,
I swore my love to you

Down that primrose vale,
flowers stretched...Read More

Premium Member cocktails at 8

Treading giddy whirlpool nucleus
attendant chairman's cocktail fest.
No cogent pregnant truth captured
above din of utter vanity tales; 
smug cocksure pretense.
Trifling challenged veracity, tainted modes
conveying relevance, insulates self-absorbed 
vagrants from waning life's epicenter.
Souls hat-checked allow pomp, faux
passion, propping up facades ignoble,
fueling arrogant...Read More

War wages love sour - LEI

Princely, proud with nobility, 
I fear you ride in vanity. 
Host not the sword but spare thine heart, 
for tomorrow you must depart. 
But take heed, know my love's expense, 
to sleep one night, lest hundred hence. 
Take this token,...Read More

Forever Lost
I tried and tried to tell you,
but I was lost in mixed emotion

I tried to not offend your spirit,
as I wandered looking for a home

I tried to make you understand,
the hard edges would soon come off

LONG LOST
LONG LOST

The first time I set eyes on you
I fell in love.
Your auburn hair, your freckled face,
Bewitching eyes.
And oh, the magic of your laughter
Coyly giggling,
Yet, in it’s very innocence,
Exuding sexuality.
Perhaps you knew how young men’s hearts
Quickened
The moment you entered the...Read More

Premium Member DEAR HEART


Ticklish wispy whiskers
I hear your faint whispers
In the dead of the night
Longing to be held tight
At first an echo soft and gentle
Sweetly sentimental
But you tremble with fear
That it will all soon disappear
Like a sand castle on the beach
Washed away out...Read More

Premium Member Placed
Literally placed bush flowers in his hair,
He figuratively placed flowers in my hair.
Methodical giggles all around;
Whilst shaking prized petals down.

Downwards spiralling to the ground
Now sediments of floral mound
The clock it ceased forevermore
When love was such and sin was spore.

All the times you cried
For Everytime you tried
I shed tears
For your lonely years

Love, I feel it too
Making me just as blue
When you feel pain
I can feel the stain
Fear keeps the words inside
My love I hide
Being your friend

A Final Note
First note chimes,
long silence gone.
Like breath again
or light at dawn.

Pure joy to hear,
healed by each note.
Lost in the melody,
finding hope.

With new life comes
new eyes too see,
and ears to hear
but eventually

the song winds down,
fire fades to smoke.
For each song has
a final...Read More

I kissed my wife goodnight

Soak in its every beat

Premium Member I Wonder
I wonder why on winter night so cold
as darkness looms and daylight takes her bow
that I am feeling loneliness take hold.

I wonder what it is she’s doing now;
perhaps she’s letting poetry console
emotions that her life does not allow.

The last hug
O my love
O my love
Listen, me to hug
Your feather touch

Felt like falling beneath the sky
Raising again, me to fly
My true pettiness
Your true worries

Pain into pieces, the falling tears,

Premium Member Suckered By Your Bluff
I found you gal		
And felt so grand.
I placed a bet			
And played my hand.
But I was suckered		
By your bluff,
‘Cause what you offered	
Wasn’t love.

I still remember,		
Way back when,
You upped the ante		
Once again.
The stakes were higher	
Than I knew.
I lost my soul			
When I won...Read More

What It Can Be
Somehow I want my heart to shut down
To sabotage my way
To make the other in my life

that logic says is right
To take what all will come with it
