Imaginary Consolation

A shadow appeared

The fatal apparition

In my dream

A corrupted echo

 

Her hands were steady

Calm and ready

For night’s return

 

Cut my heart

With blind perfection

Of cold sterility

Cut from ice

 

She wore her virtue

With partial intention

From modest dignity

 

Catch a wink

But never blink

She might disappear

Catch fitter entertainment

 

Before her was life

Vanishing into brightness

Having no hindrance

 

Drink a round

Amused and crowded

Keep your wits

Drink another round

 

Pictures capture little fairness

Tranquil, lacking fragrance

Distorted by conceit

 

Falling over steps

Into parasitic memory

Fighting against currents

Falling beyond limitations

 

Faint breathing, heart beating

Vast rhythms uninterrupted

Known, never felt

 

Take a step

On the grounds

Your ghost awaits

Take with vanity

 

There she flies away

Off towards gravity

Where wings transcend

 

This ghost appeared

In my dream

A bitter friend

This monster, me
