Starless Sky 

I wrote this poem some years ago, in an attempt to answer, perhaps, the biggest question -“Why?” Consumed in our thoughts, dreams and daily battles, we often forget why we do something. What is waiting for us out there? What will happen should we achieve a goal? Will we be happy or we will find out that the end is nothing but a meaningless picture.

A Song of Sorrow 

“A Song of Sorrow” is a dark poem written by one of the greatest and most gentle Bulgarian poets – Dimcho Debelaynov. It was discovered after his untimely death at the age of 29, and was published. We can only imagine what he could have left us if he had lived a little longer. No matter how young he died, his poems will live forever.



There is always someone we look for and need in times of despair, sadness, or just by our side when there is no one who would listen. When there is one who loves us unconditionally, no one to share the summer night or the autumn fall of leaves. There must be someone out there, promising eternal youth, happiness and immortality.


The Blue Makes Me Feel Love 

This is a poem I wrote when I was sitting on the beach and looking at the sea and its dark blue waters because of the falling darkness. It made me feel so cozy there, caressed by the breeze. I felt the way I used to feel when playing hide-and-seek at night – protected and safe. It made me feel loved and wanted.
