If I Was Going to Give Up, I Wouldn’t Have Loved Her by Can Yucel

They told me you were forbidden
– I told them prohibitions are made to be broken

They told me you were impossible
– I told them the most important thing is to be able to achieve the impossible

They told me it won’t work out
-I told them there is nothing in this world that won’t work out

They told me it was going to be difficult
– I told them if it was easy, it wouldn’t have been worthy

They asked me, “What do you even see in her?”
– I told them, “Something I couldn’t find in anyone else”

They asked me what she means to me
-I told them, “My smile on earth”

They asked me, “How did you become so attached to her?”
– I said, “I didn’t, she attached me to herself”

They asked me, “Well does she love you the way you love her?”
– This was the only thing I couldn’t answer…

They said, “If you don’t know the answer to this, then give up”
– I said, “If I was going to give up, I wouldn’t have loved her”

Roll The Dice By Charles Bukowski

If you’re going to try, go all the
way.
Otherwise, don’t even start.

If you’re going to try, go all the
way.
This could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

Go all the way.
It could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
It could mean freezing on a
park bench.
It could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
mockery,
isolation.
Isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
And you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

If you’re going to try,
go all the way.
There is no other feeling like
that.
You will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

Do it, do it, do it.
Do it.

All the way
All the way.

You will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
there is.

Whoever I Love Is You By Attila Ilhan

Whoever I love is you / wonder
how your love changes them all,
When their eyes are blue, they turn into leaf green,
They speak in your voice of course,
Their half glances are so dangerous,
They smoke your cigarette just like you do,
Whoever I love is you / wonder
for some reason you are indispensable.

I left everything / neither love nor lust,
The blonde one I start with, ends up brunette,
Their complicated faces are in dark shadows,
Their lips are sharp as a red razor,
We are in trouble! How should we end?
When the guitar moves, the time is punctured,
Whoever I love is you / wonder
your doors are closed, they can’t be entered.

Whoever I love is you/ consisting of you..
I call all of them by your name,
They giggle behind me spoiledly,
The rain that they bring / The one I forgot at you,
that one with big warm seeds.
They kiss wildly like you do,
Whoever I love is you / Wonder
if you are a human or a genie, I don’t understand.
