English is the most universal language. I know English well enough to communicate, but to write poetry is hard, to find beautiful words to express thoughts and feelings, when poetry is written in a foreign language is like you translate your thoughts.

Portrait (poem)

She hurried down the alley, her thick, long, red hair fluttered like a flag behind her, wearing black lace eye mask, her body covered by a crimson dress that reached to the ground. Bracelets tinkling on her waving arms resounded like teasing music. She hurried breathless, entranced, in midnight mystery.   Once you put on a mask, you become a fantasy character..
