lighthouse

~{}~

The lighthouse shines its light in endless beams

to safety from the tempest sea

and when a storm

torments the shore, or mist comes up

it is your guide

for shelter

here with me

the whisper shell

~{}~

There was a moment when, together but alone

we stood close to the sea both far away in thought

The whisper shell the waves had brought

I held it to my ear as if it was a phone

and when you saw me doing that, I felt so caught

remembering the times we fought

when  voices had a different tone

*

You started running on the beach

I followed you and we fell in the sand

like we had shipwrecked and found land

You had two more shells, one for each

It was the last time that I felt your hand

Over you in May

~{}~

you were not much of a real friend

the stitches of the seam are torn

you were no friend  at all to me

the black dress that I’ll wear to mourn

*

and for memories of what could have been

I find no future there

nothing left to wear

but naked lies

*

how you thought the truth could be so bend

how you thought that you could lie to me

it was something I had never seen

now I know to be aware

*

it is like waking up in Spring

the welcome of a  finer day

awaiting morning birds to sing

*

the black dress taken by the storm

at last the rain will come and wash away

this pain and shape it in another form

I am over you in May

Villanelle

~{}~

 

(a villanelle)

 

 

Now you are in eternal sleep

My hand no longer rests in yours

The silence in the room is deep

Somehow it is not time to weep

Absent the feeling of remorse

Now you are in eternal sleep

And only memories to keep

As I will think of you of course

The silence in the room is deep

Why did your faith decide to leap

and take your soul to the eternal source?

Now you are in eternal sleep

a clock is ticking time to keep

as you were taken by cruel force

The silence in the room is deep

just memories for me to keep

My hand is useless to endorse

Now you are in eternal sleep

The silence in the room is deep

The Last Lover


 

~{}~

 

Will you be the last lover

the one to hold me in my hour of fear

will you be the one then

to kiss away the pain and,  if any, a tear

 

The white curtains moved

when the window was open

the breeze from the sea

was caressing my skin

 

It is getting so dark now

as the light has been fading

and I forgot:  have I, or not,  let you in?

 

Will you be near me in my darkness

or will it just be

the breeze of the sea

whispering a farewell to me?

 

Will the sea be

my lover

at last

every line in his face

 

 

~{}~

every line in his face she knows well

every spot on his skin is so  dear

as he sleeps

while she reads

as he reads

while she eats

as they go through their daily routine

stumbling through old age and ignoring old pain

so much said

during  soothing silence of being together

 

the thought that one day he might be gone

is the only cry in her nights

is her fear

and only then

she is one minute

lonely

~{}~

 

Moment

~{}~

let’s just sit  in the dunes by the sea

nothing needs to be told

we shelter each other from cold

a ship in full sails to a far  destiny

as the waves sing their song

like drowned sailors who died a  long time ago

or are they just seagulls crying

let us stay by the sea

and listen to them

and don’t think at all about dying

not yet
