Nocturne


I am a sea of love
Coming and going on my bare soul
Tides of thoughts washing
Day and night
My forever blue
Skyline.

Marooned

Motto: “We are cut, we are fallen.
We are become part of that unfeeling universe
that sleeps
when we are at our quickest 
and burns red when we lie asleep.” 

Virginia Woolf, The Waves

I am lost like a stone
Submerged in the depths
Of this endless reality
In which our thoughts sometimes touch.

They come and go
Sometimes tormented like an agony
Sometimes calm like a madman
Marooned on an island of thousand silences.

Don’t keep me in your pocket forever,
Throw me far away,
Just enjoy the moment of
My passing ripples through your existence.

Waves

Motto: “How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. 
How much better to sit by myself like the 
solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. 
Let me sit here for ever with bare things, 
this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, 
things in themselves, myself being myself.” 
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Peace in a distance,
Overwhelming and grand,
My spirit cannot touch it.
I have drowned my words in the blue
In the green and darkness.
Isn’t silence better?
Smashing restless against the walls of my soul,
Irregular resolute
Waves.
