Immortal Burn

Immortal Burn

.

.

The evening falls

I crawl on my belly through sewers

old passions, fatal hopes

bellow, discharge

into my mind

 

Your smile is like a sickness

I can’t shake off

Your body

a beating obsession

infesting my pores

 

The last hour

the last kiss

burns immortal

like thunderstorm

fastened to my existence.
