II The Tracks II

Last night I dreamt
The tracks of the ground
Lying down with the suppressed emotions
In the core of their souls.


I came up with my


Shivery steps and whispered


‘Do you need my run?’
They kissed at my toes
Tears  came out from their eyes
I made a smile for them
And set myself for the run
They want.


I ran, across the almost


Suffocated tracks, on and on


And felt a thrilling sensation
Of warm and soft kisses
That throbbed my soul and heart.


The tracks embraced me


And said confidentially-


“Before you, there were only
The cold winds, and now
You in my lap.”
