Earth And Ocean (The Man Who Wanders By The Ocean) - Poem by Agatha Eliza Laposi

Dig your sturdy fingers deeper
in the barren heart of earth
searching for wings
someone else buried long ago
to fly like Icarus, into the blue sky,
up...until you reach the burning
sun from another world and fall!

Hear the breath of winter,
my favourite tune..the
song born in a twisted season
you never understood,
as in the embrace of an
euphoric swoon, you
succumb to a mosaic of feelings,
fading, chipping off
from the ruined wall of solitude.

In my mind, I'm trying to retrace
you-the one who wanders
restlessly, always eager to
settle scores with the ocean
and I - the one trying to sweeten
the salty, ashen taste of love
in winter, on the frozen shore,
for the last time
Oh, grant me a wish...just one.
