I turned the pages


I turned the pages wondering
Whether I should eat them
Letters without sense
You invented the game
I changed the rules
And braided my hair
Burned your necklace
Into my skin
I soaked the flowers on my shirt
They would not grow nor wither
You opened the door and
My windows turned dark

only to be closer


before you I am
all vulnerable
cannot hide
the depth of my water

the sun
makes the river smile
evaporates its water
only to be closer

one day
earth was wrapped in clouds
hiding the sun
all rivers were gone

hold on


lay your hand into mine
small and fragile
how could I fix
the leak of your boat
but  hold on
to the pulse of time
dragging my boat
through calm and storm
yours in tow
I will drag it
no matter how long
into waters of hope

Falling


Are we falling
Apart in a dream
All hesitation
Dissolving 
Autumn leaves
Wrinkled edges
Hot summer nights
Leaving their marks
A stamp of a moon
Look at me
Smiling, maybe 
I walk alone
When you 
Come along
