YOU ARE MY SLAVERY, YOU ARE MY FREEDOM – Poetry, by Nazim Hikmet

YOU ARE MY SLAVERY, YOU ARE MY FREEDOM

hikmet1.1You are my slave, you are my freedom,

You are my flesh burning

as the naked flesh of the summer nights.

You are my home

you, with green highlights of your eyes

you, high and victorious.

You are my nostalgia

of knowing how inaccessible

at the very moment when I grab you.

(Nazim Hikmet)
