Ode on Solitude
               My face meets

               The strangeness of
                                                             What's supposed to be
               People and their traitors
                                                             new


                                                             How is it less threatening
               The aim is to proceed
                                                             Than the eyes of those
               Again
                                                             walking on

                                                             The promenade opposite
               Knowledge tears the
                                                             me
               sun
                                                             Every evening
               Within me
                                                             In the lights
               You turn gray in a
                                                             Of the urban lighting
               minute
                                                             And the exposed
               Vanish within two
                                                             cameras
               contradictory

               Hues
                                                             And to where exactly

                                                             shall we take our
               The sea we sailed into
                                                             Feet
               today
                                                             If we fall
               Cradled
                                                             Into the sea
               Mixed music
                                                             Just by mistake
               That released fears
                                                             When something inspired
               In me
                                                             is released
               On level with the
                                                             And lifts disappointment
