"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry


sailing the desert

my love lost in another world, the desert sends you endless waves of sand
in the cold night when you sail from shore to shore asking
mermaids and bards and lonely women and shamans and the fata morgana
for the absolute beauty and the golden wool

seeds of whispers get born on my silent lips as I try to get you out of the corners
of this universe, me undressed of day dreaming, you covered in dreams
that cannot get real because you don’t set them free while you linger too long
in the chaotic nightmare hammered in screaming ancient walls

the springs of my soul search for the sky in your never seen eyes
so that the day when you’ll find your way back to me
you won’t step on the blaze of our burning hearts
while you’ll break my life in two with a kiss

    • No, it has not changed, the only thing is that I take more time to write, that makes my poems deeper, and they will continue to grow maybe. Before I used to write a poem in a breath, now, because of the lack of time I write one in several days and I have more images in my mind, so the result is more complex.
      What do you understand by true romance?

      • In other words, your poems now receive their due attention and thought.
        It’s a good sign, let’s see how it unfolds.
