Shallow waters

3a09ca1dc8f7caf95b58463b52279a0a

I breathe in shallow waters,
And walk on leaves that carry glances of the past.
I see reflections of the sun,
And close them in a mirror spread inside.
I shade autumn with my palms,
And hold back the night without its stars.
I step quietly in morning light,
And search for answers in the dew that ceased to shine.
I stare at painted walls with all the things I cannot do,
And walk away before the colours disappear.
I chase the air that holds the scent of all my dreams,
And race time to find a way while I can.
I stop and look around.
There’s so much restless agitation in everything that owns a piece of life.
So then I breathe. The shallow waters have a brink.

  7. Breathe in.
    Breathe out.
    You are alive.
    You can.

  8. Beautiful poetic style. So gentle yet so real. Simple yet contains such vivid imagery that carries me away from the words and into your world. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful expression. I know I will be wanting to read more of your work.
