reflections from a stranger’s eyes

I.

somehow her breath
without surrendering
the silent withering
of her dark sadness
whispered goodbye

II.

this hidden sadness
is the imaginary conversation
through which she hides
a meaningless existence
in these imperfect silent walls

III.

the pretending dark twist
of endless romance
waited beyond
the stoic calm
of a morning smile
shifting towards the guilt
of a lost wandering whisper
through an uncharted
sorrow of an elusive dream

IV.

the conversation
left us empty
without a feeling
echoing
the slow beating heart
hidden inside you

V.

softly stolen
through the flooding sea
its broken promise
nestling deep in time
the feeling gently
obscured the night
without a
sacred look
falling towards her

VI.

winter
heavenly appears like the
immaculate white snow
where the perfect dreaming
somehow promised
its brilliant destiny
to the impatient girl
