The Lake House - Poem by loic 'nexus' ekinga

Oceans will part and the coast will simmer under the horizon. As tears are blown out of my eyes. By the lake where we once lived, the song of awe is also sung in words.
As far as the eye can see, man believed that mountains were the dwelling places of gods. It was told that fantasy like arrows will impale your heart when you fall in love. And that new born babies are carried by birds into a woman's bossom....

But i looked at you for the last time, reason melted in me. I walked under the sun on the path where life is hope; hope is food and it felt like the earth has gone away, and it felt like your love has gone away. I saw, seldom, angels passing through rushing stars at night. And i, with my eyes recognized you. I fell in love with your soul, in the quiet of your heart where feelings lie in harmony, tapestry and soft melodies....

The lake house has never been so empty. O i dont want to be here alone as though you never existed! Place yourself and stay in me. To a place we can reason together, where i can pass my thumb on your light-pure skin... My secret place, O desired! Our lake house.

The lake is a sad and still place, i dont want to be here alone. But i am not amazed that the sky has today lifted up in its clouds an eyebrow-the song of awe is also sung in words in this sad lake. Still, I never deserved you anyway.
