Suicide by Orhan Veli

I shall die without anyone knowing,
There shall be
a little blood by my mouth.
The ones who don't know me shall say
'He definitely loved someone.'
And the ones who know me shall say,
'Poor thing, he suffered a lot'
But the real reason
Shall be none of these.

trans. Süleyman Fatih Akgül

John Ash refers to Orhan Veli as an influence. Without him,
he says he would not have been able to write short poems.
