Velvet shadows

Velvet shadows

When the valley curves in lavender
under the twilight blood, I fear
that the stardust of your eyes
will remain forever in my veins,
to tarnish the knot of brittle dreams,
keeping the monsoon clouds away.

When the last words vanish, nebulously,
behind the metal doors of pain,
I know, the adieu will flutter,
dying dismally on my lips and
only the fragrance of your kiss
will hold distant the ocean of sins.

And when the echoes of the dawn
find me alone, with drizzling heart
over the ink in the letters of your name,
I wish I could save the piece of moonlight
over the velvet shadows of laughter and
ecru, rose petals that you gave me.

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.

Regret

Regret

I’ve been here before, haven’t I?

With my bare feet burning in snow,
carelessly holding spike of sorrow,
assembling directions out of another lost trial
but do I remember the exit and which road to follow?

Do I hope to break free, to rescue the moral left in me?
Blind, deaf and senseless is there a chance to borrow?

Love only? How did my heart let it be enough?
Old matches? How did I let them turn into fire?
And that letter with scribbles in Arabic that
you thought I won’t be able to read … Damn it!

Once again I will change my relationship status from
“happily in love” to “still in love, but torn by doubt”.

Once again, I will watch regret marching next to me,
I will let disappointment to teach me what grief is,
to accept it and count the tears as dear lessons,
once again, I will turn every wrong desire away.
