Of Entanglement

The subtle fragrance of of love
is full of metamorphosis,
you and me are fire and ecstasy;
wet your lips on mine and
in the virtue of of love
we’ll both forget the song of time.

The childish reflections in our eyes
guides our hands as we trace our bodies,
and we eat each other, savoring,
feeling and drowning our mouths in moans.

I was born a sinner beloved,
it’s love’s insanity that moved me,
it forces my soul to seek
such a pleasant disease.
And you yield to me so sweetly,
giving everything you have.

A pleasant routine, night and day
we fly above the sky
and shelter ourselves in each others arms,
and we lay in the blue velvet of the night
under the loving care of the stars.

And so we’ll carry on,
until the end of time.

Of a vague passion

A tattooed lie jumps at me
from the silk thread where it lays
on a forgotten city. But I still love you.

The walk towards purity
leads to a castle of dreams,
in a river full of nostalgia
that is full of foam of hope.

The silver sky shines brights
as the blue breeze waves
gently the trees of memories.

And suddenly you are close.
I surrounded to your memory
like a bullet through the night,
but full of light. And you smile.

Your smile is full fairy tales,
with a strange look
you break us. And you disappear.


I wonder off in search of a dream,
I walk barefooted instead of taking flight,
running with the wind,
with the wild winds of the day
and the dark blue velvet of the night
I sleep in clouds of songs and dreams.
In search of a dream I find your face,
and I was almost happy for a while,
my ship had found a dock to land in
and the wind on my back was cool
as the sun shine on your hair
and I dreamed  of your lips upon mine,
but with the harshness of time
I was bound to wake up.

[145 words]

"It's not like I can die twice!"

The words left her mouth before she even realized what she had said. It was only when silence greeted her, that reality hit her. She looked around to find shocked faces, wide eyes and mouth agape.

What had she done?

She had done what she swore never to do, reveal that she in fact, had died.

It was her brother who broke the silence. "So, you did die in that fire, didn't you?". His voice was soft, unbelieving. Almost like a whisper.

She sighed and looked at him. "I did. I died... please don't ask me about it. This is not the time. But yes, I died."

Saying it out loud was cathartic. For once the secret that she had kept -and only Jocelyn knew- was out in the open.

She only wished it was under different circumstances.
