Kamand Kojouri
“If your mind can move mountains
and swallow gods,
Why does it worry with helpless yesterdays
and unborn tomorrows?

If it can vomit stars
and walk on split hairs,
Why must it follow the same
path to despair?

Everyone will tell you:
'An orgasm here is just as good.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kamand Kojouri
“We grow old judging others
And ourselves
Until life humbles us
And makes scared children of us
Longing to hold another’s hand
To hear their kind words
And witness their kind deeds
done on our behalf.
But like children,
We sabotage everything
For nothing satisfies us
Until life crumbles us
And we are no more.”
Kamand Kojouri

Ranjani Ramachandran
“Strolling around. Eyes met and I forgot. He didn't.
Something deeper. Something stronger.
Hands touched and I forgot. He didn't.
He loved me.
Slowly and gradually, he gave me all that he felt. But he didn't realise giving could mean giving it away. Gave all of it until it faded.
They say energy in the universe remains constant.
Now I love him. He doesn't.”
Ranjani Ramachandran

Kamand Kojouri
“All this waiting.
Waiting for the rain to
stop. Waiting in traffic.
Waiting for the bill.
Waiting at the airport
for an old friend.
Waiting to depart.
Then,
there’s the big waiting:
waiting to grow up. Waiting
for love. Waiting to show your
your parents that when you
have kids you’ll be different.
Waiting to retire. Waiting for
death.
Why do we think waiting
is the antithesis of life
when it is almost
all of it?”
Kamand Kojouri

It rains it dries the world rotate
They come and they go it's a common fate
Human love is a colored silk , it must fade
And even it's darkest of shade
Misery and joy it's a constant change but
Between sorrows and jollity something unchanged
Nature, my love ; It remains the same.

And left in the rain”

“¿Dónde estás, recóndita luna azul
fulgor de mi lozanía,
ojos de ultramar,
níveo semblante?
Buscando vislumbrarte por doquier
en la interminable oscuridad de mis días
no ha más que la sombra de tu celeste trasiego

Es este tu errante andar,
el extender de tus argentas manos,
las mudas reverberaciones interiores
el objeto de mi azogue”
Martín González
