preter la muroj

I felt safe within these walls
cracked and whispering of millions of memories gone by
and only after I left for the outside world
did I recognize their absence

these other lands feel so foreign to my soft hands
where one mistake renders an angel into a monster
overruling moments of pure euphoria
into one single despicable act in time

you ask me why it takes so long
for people to find each other
amid the waves of humans rolling by in the lean of life
and I reply that I don’t know

maybe I should go back to my island in time
and spend eternity in oblivion, staring at windows into the past
because there is one thing that I have glimpsed on this planet but once
and that is a soul with lilies intertwined within
