Goalkeeper

In a letter sent to his past lover
The goalkeeper painted a picture of one of his ears
:The lover called him and said
*”You didn’t have the balls”
:Goalkeeper said
,You wouldn’t have fallen in love with me anyways”
“At least I have two ears this way

The love between two people
.Is a sand timer

   A poem from  “The Goalkeeper’s story (a collection of poems)” by Mehdi Ganjavi

*Legend says that Van Gogh takes a razor and cuts off his left ear. He then wraps the piece in some newspaper and hoping to make her fall in love with him, gives it to a prostitute with these words: ‘Keep this object like a treasure.’
