Poetry: Bilall Maliqi, Presheva-Kosovo

Exclusive: Poetry from Europe and other Western locations: Curated by Agron Shele

Open your eyes
I get into groan

Close your eyes
A black shadow
Around us

Open your files
And take off your masks
Because the fortress of Presheva
Is covered by darkness
Whereas the Valley is covered by dread

Open your eyes…

Three steps to the mark
In pike we have the stone

Through the holes of the fence
With a little light

From this point note
Grabovc with two heads

And his tail  hang up
In the old tree

From this free dot

In a naked mound
To revive the loves


If you want to write a poetry
Put your feeling into inspiration

Don’t hurt the verse

Write down the mark of figures
If you couldn’t find their place

You hurt the verse
The poetry protests

If you want to write a poetry
Become a shadow in every verse

Don’t stay like stubby

Get to that mark
With your metaphor tousle your time


Fortune of mine only you know my pains
I revealed and had inside me

When sleepy loneliness overtakes me
The memory is linked strongly with longing

My longing is stretched in belly of time
For the moisture fate in the edge of soul

I never give up to annoyance 
Neither to storm that takes a bunch of memories

My saturated fate in a pond of tears
My hope left in a dirty midnight

My desire for you as the wide fields
From where came the first word of love

My song for you was transformed into a ballade 
Together with damned landmarks

Upon our sights fell out darkness 
And put us into legend

Now in the nest of ruined fate
Remained a hope which will never disappear


Let me patch my ramshackle fate
In the back of the contempt map

Let me count the shouts
And with my look to destroy the landmark

Let me step down the slope
With many repeated groan

Let me sit on the top of the landmark
And get connected with you my land

Let me be on the surface of the rocky ground
Just to read the engraved love
