The Vortex Of Silence

I touch you with the emotional methoxies
of the erotic lust.
Sacred pews memory is embroidered.
Your fleeting look imposing
the passion of your lips a ritual.
Your aura invisible veil that drives away
takes care of the living space
balances the sadness
and the vicious circle of the unquiet version
it is repeated!


Steps count in life
discounts we make in our dreams
a maypole of thoughts.
The space of electronic memory is empty.
Heart and mind in frames.
The soul paints memories
and the last car wheel
entertains the eternity!


When the lights go out
what's left?
When the footings are lost
how do you keep yourself in life?
The ships stranded
and you are looking for anchors?
The mainstays were rotting in the quay
when your bow overlooked foreign ports
unreachable horizons
and your stern was pouring water!
