Compassion for Time


Compassion for Time The limitations of compassion, Let me keep my heart intact. I have touched your madness, The curiosity for moments I cared; But . . . Those words made of ink,  Will always be dark. And words from whispers,  Which come from the heart,  Will always love. All the struggles to survive; In the distance between us – But that bright light hiding within; Never left your side – So if you ever think back, And for a split moment sigh; Do not think twice, For you did not offend me. It was our love which was sacrificed; … Continue reading Compassion for Time

Beyond the Sea


Beyond the Sea  Bear the whispers of a weeping hue, To recall the moments of rapture. Obliterate the cries of sorrow, Words crippled by failure to thrive. Misplaced memories of you; Of all that you dream to be, Plunge into the depths of your ocean, Reclaim the path you pledged to engrave. Do not forsake that endless need.

In the dawn of silence you always knew; You turned the pages of that beautiful ride; In the trembling of your voice, The darkest story ever told. … Continue reading Beyond the Sea

The Bridge Across the Sea


The Bridge Across the Sea by Maria Fokas On my death-bed, I say my last goodbye. I do not utter his name; a forgiving tragedy; And to his final question: I speak a lie. I shall not shed another tear for the moments denied. I shall not shed another tear for foolish twisted humanity – I shall not shed another tear for that weakness to suppose. Erase me from your past; . . . the years you have forsaken me – Each genuine day; Each generous hour; A love I embraced: In pure desire, his lips I kissed – Every … Continue reading The Bridge Across the Sea
