Like a River

In the Ground

Can you still read me

through this vapour too?

and the false truth all I want is you


I am a vessel of your youth

and it really happens

once in a blue moon


like a flow in the veins

inundates body and mind,

all five senses and brain


can you see too?

can you figure me and you?

I love the rain and I play in vain


we climb an invisible grid

this is my deeper belief

it's a one way street, slippery


back and forth, juggling

Struggle of nurturing feelings

playing a duel in a court


we are sensing a scramble,

a screwing turning point

beyond our world


I crash with it, naked

again and again,

until I think I will understand


I surrender,

I get into this new land

to me l cannot pretend


too hard to extinct a drive

as the feeling of a knife

I need pain to set myself alive


this burns in the air like a firework,

this is a sharp sound

it run inside, profound


as a river in the ground
