If only somehow you could have been mine, what wouldn’t

have happened in the world?

I’m everything you lost. You won’t forgive me.

If only somehow you could have been mine,

what would not have been possible in the world?

sin1This week i want to share a short paragraph with you which i read in one of the Turkish literary magazines named “K”.  I am not able to remember the name of the writer but it is originally in Turkish so i will translate it into English for the ones who are interested.

“Günah nedir? Günah kimindir? Hindistan’da bir ineği, Arabistan’da domuzu yemek, Batı’da şarabı içmemek, İran’da sevişmek, Tayland’da sevişmemek…”

“What is a sin? To whom it belongs to? Eating a cow in India and a pig in Arabistan, not to drink wine in West, to make love in Iran and not to make love in Thailand…”
