I Want To Forget That Day - Poem by JeanPierre Barakat

I want to forget that day,
Remember the kiss I stole,
Lips which dared betray
The silent death of my soul...


I want to forget our great velvet years,
Remember the words you said before
You pierced me with your nefarious spears
And then left me bleeding on the shore...


I am carried away on the wave of a dream,
And by dreaming, I surrender my soul to you...
I float, burn like desire in a scorching scream,
And by screaming, I excise the gloomy view...


I am reborn now for the sake of the sea
Following the beam of a shimmering light...
And I crave for this love showering on me
Promises of eternal waves of delight...
