The full moon belonged to yesterday,
but the breeze was tonight’s.

The sea wind caressed my hair,
the distant rustle of waves
and the wail of the passing train
lulled the turbulence
whirring in my soul.

All I had were a clump of words,
a handful of dreams,
a few sighs and byes.

All I had were the frame
of bygone days, and
the flesh of impossibilities.

All I would do is tattoo
the ink of my pains
into the layers of hearts
that cared to undress
for the sheer faith
in me...
