Liquid times

Everything is so fast That I need to run To not be left behind

When I hold to something It melts away like water In these liquid times

Everything changes Nothing lasts forever All things vanish Nothing sticks together

Faces in movement Indistinguishable in the crowd Will I ever find the one Before my time here is out?

It’s freezing cold outside But within, my heart is still warm Please, either make it burn again Or mercifully put out the fire

A man of numbers, a man of words. A man of science, a man of faith. A writer, a poet.
