    мольбы

    What does мольбы mean?

    Here is the context:
    За горами под сводами из снов на куски
    Не видятся, не слышатся эти мольбы
    Дикие слёзы. Как быть? Боли мужской...

    Also, can somebody explain the verse. It doesn't seem to make any sense to me.
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    Mольбы - plural of мольба. Lingvo says that it's "entreaty; supplication; prayer", but you should have in mind that it's not the same as молитва.

    You don't understand what "из снов на куски" is doing there? I don't understand it either.

    Probably it's just bad verses I don't understand them too.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    too with positive verbs, either with negative verbs:
    I understand them too.
    I don't understand them either.
    Neither do I.

    IMHO I would say "I also don't understand them".
    но во всяком случае, the error is minor.
