I Am Speaking To You…

Forough Farrokhzad (52)

“I am speaking to you-
from the edge of darkness,
and about the depths of night.
I reach out to you
from the thick layers of absolute shade.
Darling!
If you are coming to visit me,
then bring me a torch,
and put up for me
a little window.
I will then watch-
the noisy crowd of the happy lane.”

Forough Farrokhzad
