FOGGY SOLITUDES

Poem winning second place in Spain, in a contest to the solitude, April 30, 2015.

 

 

I find myself

close – distant

to the zephyr breeze,

I question in vain.

Foggy solitudes,

dressed up as equinoxes

in perennial springs.

 

I require to silence

flooding words,

to silence tears

adorning my face.

Sadness dwelling

like a stowaway

in soul’s murky mirrors.

 

Absence afflictions

gradually succumb

between my barren hands.

Pointless

to grasp into hope!

Reason outshines

the fragmented heart

and the bare silence

suffocates the stars.

 

Stars that won’t shine

upon nostalgia seas

taking away opacities

and a shattered mirror

where my reflection

fades away

right now.

 

Cracking in my own roots…

dark memories,

empty stealth,

and leaves

scattered on the ground.
