I wish I could go back.

Back to the beach,

laughing like drunk fools

getting lost in your eyes

holding each other as if we were immortal.

Like the sea always is

mimicking the waves,

buzzing with love,


The sunset flaming over us,


against your young skin.

Stepping on the sand,

earth mingling, loving

that moment

you were here

breathing the same air,

living all there is to live

without thinking of the end.

Without knowing.

And now, now the sea is empty of you,

unplugged from us

without the breath that brought us together.

But with lastingness

that puts a spell on our heart


the moment that was…

into infinity.

With lastingness,


P.S. I hope my new book Where Did You Go? has found you.
