The Wave

This stormy afternoon

Every story in stare

Pulling my hair for

Pages torn too soon

A curtain of words

Remain everywhere


Pages and strands

Pages and strands


The night is absent

Flickering cigarettes

And green fairy absinthe

Leaving your breath

For my burdened body

Made to never forget


Vertical hands

Vertical hands


Falling at the day’s start

Rising at it’s end

Already so far away…

taken by the fourth tide

washed in it’s wave

The just in case…
