I absolutely stopped the smiling…

Left me waiting, Various Edition , 2012, Sugar lift and spit bite etching

I absolutely stopped the smiling,
A white frost tries my lips to froze,
One hope’s gone from hopes’ filing,
One song will come to songs, morose.
And this song, seeing none or hearing,
I’ll give to mocking and defiance
Because it is beyond all bearing –
The pain of loving soul’s silence.

~ Anna Akhmatova
