Infilak 

Ben gidince hüzünler birakirim 

Bu senin yasadigindir 

Bir ev sikilir kadinlardaki 

Bir adam sikilir kadinlardaki 

Seni sevmek bu kadar mi 

O benim yasadigimdir. 

 

Bazan da bir yerde kuslar vardir 

Ne uçmak, ne görünmek için 

Bir karanfil pencereyi deler 

Bir kapi kendiliginden kapanir 

Istesek sevisirdik, ama olmadi 

Biz degil yasayan acilardir. 

 

Gitsem de her yerde biraz vardir 

Hatirda zamansiz bir plak 

Bir otel kapisi, biraz istasyon 

Vardir o seninle birlikte olmak 

Bulusur çok uzaktan ellerimiz 

Ve nasil göz gözeyiz ansizin bir infilak.

 

 ( Edip Cansever)

Explosion

 

I leave blues behind when I go.

This is what you live with.

A house gets bored amongst women.

A man gets bored amongst women.

Is loving you this much?

This is what I live with.

 

Sometimes there are some birds some where.

They are for neither for flying, nor to be seen.

A carnation drills through a window.

A door gets shut by itself.

If we wanted, we would have made love, but did not happen.

Not us, They are our sorrows who breathe.

 

Even if I leave, it exists a bit every where.

An untimely record in memories,

A hotel door, a few train stations.

That, being together with you always exists.

Our hands meet from  far away,

And as if we are eyes to eyes, suddenly, an explosion.

 

My try (as usual)

Ok, so it is not gramatically correct but it makes sense to me, I can understand what he is saying here... I think he is unsure if he really loves her or not and he is living with that.  Peoms seldom make sense to everyone, it is personal, a personal feeling about a moment in time, and it is a personal expression of that moment.

 

Yes I love it too......
