Sleep, My Love
by Shptim Myshketa

The author, through the mystery of the figures of speech, expresses to us that the laws of life are universal, that man cant live without freedom and love. The poet is a thin observer, and his critic eye cant bypass the beauty and vitality of life, that spiritual force that decorates the man and evidences the virtue. The poet lies hidden, the same as God, in the centre of his world, appearing only through the creations of his poetry.

The poetry of Shptim Myshketa, many times perceived as a piece of drama with a defined character and such a situation, is dramatic. The author's attention focuses mostly on the breaking down of this drama, the movements of thought, and psychological analyses of the characters found. The creation of these poems with the tense situation is detected simultaneously by the spiritual experience of the contemporary novelist and playwright. Broadcasting is an important philosophical code. These poems manage to get a universal spatial extent. In the focal point of view of this poet, the reader is presented with its drama and spiritual worldview, with its daily ambiguities and dilemmas. The poems of the volume Sleep, My Love should be read carefully to really comprehend their dramatic-philosophic start. Being consistently clear, accurate, synthetic, and suggestive, his poems have poetic breath, rhythm, and melody.
