The rain which falls
The droplets rebounding as they hit the ground
Nourishing the earth
This is life

The half-dead man, he walks
His body breathes
His soul is dead
The living-dead walk
The heart it doesn’t stop
He responds to no command
Whatever would be asked

The man makes his way through the deluge
His soul cries
He is overwhelmed by the torment
Emptied of feeling

The bridge of souls
The bridge of arts
The bridge of love too

Tears of the sky
Tears of the man
They come together in symbiosis
Nourishing the river

One step further
One step too far

The suspended soul is now freed
For eternity …
Fully cleansed of his sins

My first pleasure is to write…
The second one is that you read my work and that you get as much pleasure as I do…
Then we could say that it’s a victory!
