The Sand House



They who search for nest,
rest not a moment in life.
And they who discern illusions,
build sand houses.

I built mine at the bay,
big but simple 
with pillars of realization
and no doors windows of expectations.

The soul lived in it,
with fun and free air, 
no fear for perils as they seem already familiar;
Lifetime spent worthwhile.


And then the waves had to arrive.
Nature as it rules with no exceptions,
 washes off each grain to its core, 
for peace to prevail above all.

The Soulmate



After a quest for food,
to my nest I return...

"12:30!!...
You are late tonight sweetheart, my wait was long.
Come on, slide into the blanket,
we'll dream...rest you forget"

As I close my lashes
and try to captive sleep within,
the jealous soul mate kisses on my eyes
and wakes me up again.

"Let not just the Day see you,
I long to be with you more;
open your eyes for me dear,
the sun any time shall encroach".

"See with your open eyes
the road ahead and one behind,
you will find me fight for you
with the Day robbing your peace of mind".

"I give you my dark blood,
soak it with your thoughts
as you dream more to frame your future."

"I am your only mate...till death,
Your Soul Mate,
I am your Night."
