In this material world, perhaps thou and I art shadows of two lovers in another world. Our minds have been engaged long time before we met.


 Sohail Forouzan-sepehr, 16th November 2009, Chelmsford

My Kingdom!

They always tell me ‘you live like a king!’

Yes, I do. I should live like a king.

Because I am a king,

King of kings,

King of a large territory,

King of my mind,

King of my emotions,

King of my life.

I used to be a slave,

Slave of my mind,

Slave of my heart,

And slave of my life.

But now, after all those harsh days of slavery, I am a king.

                        King of kings,

                                    King of a large territory,

                                                King of my mind,

King of my emotions,

King of my life.

ﭘس از دوازده ﺳﺎل

او خواست تا کاخ خوشبختی خويش بر ويرانه‌های زندگانی من افرازد،

 و زان پس معمار شالوده کاخش را چو خاکروبه‌ای به دور اندازد.

 او زنده است و معمار فِسُرد و دلش شکست و مُرد،

کاخ ويران شد و چو آرامگهی پيکرم به زير خاک بِبُرد!

ﺑراى زادروزم

Temple of Anahitaآنگاه که بانوی آب مرا به پرستشگاه خويش خواند

زمانی بس دراز از جدايی من و فروهرم گذشته بود

و زان پس باران نشان من شد

 تا هر آنگاه گريستن سپهر را بنگری مرا ياد کنی.

 روز باران،

       روز من

               فرخنده باد.

Calm Down

Not once upon a time but just right today, when I was burning in fever, I saw a window. A piece of paper and an unsharpened-ball pencil were especially and funnily ready for me near my bed. I remembered I had drawn that window many years ago with a young girl in front waiting for her destiny. She was there, in my mind, like always in my heart; I was in my bed burning in fever. My left hand started to shake on that paper. Some verses were coming from the window dirtying the paper, maybe unmeaning maybe even ridiculous:

Calm down, calm down;

You are me, I am you;

Look in the mirror.


Calm down, calm down;

And wait for the phone ring. An angel will ring.

This time you must speak more peacefully.


Don’t be selfish, don’t be shy;

This time you must love me more;

Don’t forget, you are me, I am you;

It’ll be a different life. So, you must give me more.


Just look in the mirror;

And calm down, calm down;

Forever calm down.
