Saša Milivojev - THE BRIDGE OF SIGHS

Sasha Milivoyev Saša Milivojev THE BRIDGE OF SIGHS   Beams of light are entering shyly into the darkness through dungeon bars Carried from the bridge are resounding Screams and chains and wailing cries Confined prisoners the defiant The suffering paying their price The walls are echoing With whispers of the final prayer Falling down the tears of blood Frightened by the ferrous tide And the Infinity’s deadly voicelessness Perished the wholesome the innocent the hungry Against the injustice to rebel To their children bid farewell For the freedom of their children when they drew that final breath Drawing close the final moments, my life May you never forget That moment of horrid death The innocent could not object The prison drowned in tempestuous sea Immersed the dungeons in sharp water entirely To pieces scattered victims hearts Bodies and souls torn apart With a screaming cry Heavens let out a painful sigh   Saša Milivojev in Venice 9.11.2012 .     Translated by  Ljubica Yentl Tinska w
