Symphony of Death*

Once more a symphony of death resounds
without cease,
Humans and subhumans in a sea of fire and
blood,
Death is a deliverance from torture – longed for
here at times,
Grief sings slaughtered Love’s requlem.

With pain in my soul I stand before an unseen
threshold,
A heavy wave of weariness strikes me down,
Prayer alone ascends to Absolute God,
Perhaps, through sincerity of intent He hears me.

I have lived, loved, hated, experienced fear,
So my turn has come to vanish into the dark,
Memory of mine, don’t mourn me at my
execution.

In the twilight world no desire remains,
The way is endless, and the way is endlessly sad,
In the enigma of dance I whirl with my own
Death.

Mikail Isin Eldin
(Translated by Anna Gunin)
