ME AND YOU

Breathe inside this water
Open your eyes
You will see me
Waiting for you
 
An album of tragedies
Floats past us
Don’t touch it
Undisturbed by us
It revolves around you
Around me
 
An invisible circle
Impenetrable
I cannot be you
You will not become me
 
Tears will connect us
Mine will flow from my eyes
And yours?
 
CRISS CROSS

A thread rolls in water
Seized by a fish
Swallowed, it sails freely in its guts
Unwinding
Maybe twisting
 
Flick !
 
Drops trying to touch the sky
Eyes wide open
An open mouth
The angler deep within
The art of befriending
 
WE STOOD MELTING WITH THE PASSING YEARS
 
We stood melting with the passing years
I took your memories
And you took my feelings
A dry wind blows in the background
Thinning of blood and of ourselves in the mirrors of time
A nail lost
And an eyelash gained
The moon weeps in anticipation of a loss
The dried flower in my book
Refuses to have your name written on it
Crumbles into a million words
I will blow it on your face
Maybe one of them will stick on you
Reminding you…
