Child of shadows, once born of fleshUn-winged, amidst fear and agony‘Fraid of the lurking and yet to comeOblivious, to the code of chivalry.Voids in his desire were unveiled, asLove taught him; death with dignity.In desire to be and in wanting to liveHis wretched soul began to purge,As he wept at the beauty of nightHe commenced to sing his own dirge,Then born again of fire; ascended,Like Phoenix must burn to emerge.

as I loved all those artists, as much as I saw their genius, the fact of the matter is that for a while, there was only Prince. It may be hard for kids now to recover a sense of how out there Prince was in the early eighties, how far above the crowd he was operating, especially since the Prince today is kind of the opposite of the Prince then. But in the early eighties, people spoke of him as a genius, and they weren’t kidding, not even a little.

What is Bülent doing in that outlandish costume? Bülent is filling in for the princess, just for now. In women’s clothing, like a zenne at a wedding? Take that off at once! That’s right, I’m talking to you, Reşat Bey roared. Bülent’s eyes filled with tears. Why was Granddad shouting at him? Sabahat, it is outrageous to dress boys as girls. Don’t ever let me see you do that again! But at school we always— Not in this house, you don’t, Ahmet Reşat snapped as he closed the door and headed back down to his study.

I talk all day with people who are seen and heard by no one, people who don’t exist and won’t exist until the day I mention them. I listen as they converse among themselves. I live their loves, their adventures, their hopes, worries and joys. I sometimes chuckle as I pace the courtyard, because I overhear their rather entertaining conversations. As I don’t want to put them on paper in prison I inscribe all of this into the crannies of my mind with the dark ink of memory.

Until the stars burn out, and all worlds end, until the planets collide, and the suns wither, until the moon’s light dies, and the rivers and seas run out, until I grow so old that my memories fade away, and my tongue cannot say your name, until my heart beats for the last time, only then .. will I maybe stop, maybe.
