Is not silence more painful than death? Sessizlik ölümden daha acıtıcı değil midir?



Extinguish my eyes, I still can see you,
Close my ears, I can hear your footsteps fall,
And without feet I still can follow you,
And without voice I still can to you call.
Break off my arms, and I can embrace you,
Enfold you with my heart as with a hand.
Hold my heart, my brain will take fire of you,
As flax ignites from a lit fire-brand–
And flame will sweep in a swift rushing flood,
Through all the singing currents of my blood.

Kör et gözlerimi; yine de görürüm seni,
kapat kulaklarımı: Duyabilirim seni,
ayaklarım olmadan da gelebilirim sana,
çağırabilirim seni ağzım olmadan da.
Koparsan da kollarımı, tutarım seni,
yüreğimle, ellerimle olduğu gibi,
kapatsan da yüreğimi, beynim çarpacak,
ve beynime salsan da alevler,
kanımın her damlasında taşırım seni.

Extinguish My Eyes
Rainer Maria Rilke
