Alone with the sand

`

Alone with the sand

there’s a fidgeting
in the sea tonight,
morbid lullabies,
delusions
knitting the shadows
of the waves and
the entombment
of the twilight.

coral reefs against humidity,
ships dancing
on the edge of salt
and the moon running scared
in terror,
that she will not find love,
she will not see
the chosen face,
but keep looking at
the ridiculously bluish sea,
keep searching
the Delphic ocean
for pearls and illusions,
for more than
a glimpse of imagination.

there’s a trap, a Siren’s fate,
blindly accepted after
the tide of a heartbreak.
there’s a time casting anchor,
to vanish, to mourn,
to swallow the soreness,
detached from the stars,
alone with the sand.

I remain

I remain

how brave you stand
illusions over illusions
no dragon can win
the starry dust
in your eyes
i dare you
keep me asleep
if you can

butterflies of time
let them dry the tears
ashes of ancient myths
let them whisper secrets
i dream to know you
hopeful i remain

how weak the sun
rises next to me
no mortal charm
can erase the flame
the pearls of a kiss
you chase me
through the wind
i hate to be awake

colors of the sea
let them wash the salt
thorns of beauty
let them crumble the pain
i save your scent
calm i remain

until there is the rain …
