Ocean

A small house, a dim light, faint smells of stale prawns. I searched the ocean, boat with a broken mast, for the sounds which faded away, slowly into darkness. I was still, a wrinkled and torn shirt… and few moments of an uncommon and undeserved love. All was just a moment away, already stolen by my beer bottle and ashtray full of smoke. I heard her walk into me, into crowds of happiness, and also my lonely sorrows. Probably I kept on silently running in the forest, deeper and deeper into eternity.
