Get Away From Me

He has a speed of words, higher than the speed of sound
Everyone can benefit from it
Worldly things are silent
They talk.

As I drink, I sink into the sea of alcohol in me.
I become silent with every glass of outer life.

I'm so sorry I didn't read a book yesterday.
But today, although I may not be happy, I will be at peace.
Because I'm going to read a book soon.

No matter where it blows
Blowing
There is something inside me.

This is the crazy wind
Very
Crazy than me.

Is there another word left

Can you understand?

No
You can't understand

No
Doesn't understand!

He's dead!
Everything is left in half!

No
You can't understand!

He's dead.

Who are you
Do not touch me
Get away from me
Who are you?

He's dead.

I died too.
Get away from me!

    no, I no need your happiness, no need your heaven
    no need your Eden garden, no need you smiling sun and moon
    no need the peaceful flying pigeons, no need to live for good life
    I need you, yes, I need you very much
    I need your presence in my heart everytime

    I wanted you, your breaths, your nerves, your hearts in me
    I wanted your presence not only in happiness but also in sorrow
    I wanted you in the scorching summer as well as flowery spring
    I wanted your words in my words like the holy verse of God
    I wanted your companionship like the rose and its aroma

    but now for the sake of good life you left me alone
    for the sake of good earning and surviving you've gone
    for the sake of ephemeral happiness you are in difficulties

    give not me the flowers, the fragrant
    give not me the flying birds canvas
    give not me the shining of rising sun
    give not me the dusk of chirping birds
    give not me the warmth kisses on the eve light
    give not me the rosy beds on the moonlit night

    I may be just an ignorant cowboy, but to me this poem makes no sense.
    Sorry.
