In Aloneness


It was a thorn in flesh
before our fires met in midstream,
the waterplant had become untouchable.

I saw you lying
behind a thin veil,
like a prophet, in timeless agony.

The moon had left a wreath
for a failed warrior,
who could not move into the tunnel.

Entering the childhood again
to reap the sorrow
of a dry fountain.

Ah, in the eternal withdrawal
I come face to face
with my dying earth.
