Submerged into Silence – Погруженная в Тишину

Every breath, every step – into Nothing, Every word, every sigh flew and gone… Silence flooding, Eternity gushing, And my soul is submerged into dawn. *** (Russian version) Каждый вздох, каждый шаг – в Неизвестность, Каждый миг, каждый слог унося, Развергается, стелется Вечность И в молчании тонет душа. *Image is available as a poster and […]
