Waltzing By The Shore

Waltzing by the shore, memories unfold.
I come back at the dock where I met you.
The tides and the painful sunset retold
all what we gathered, all the hurt we knew.
Our old ghosts loved tremendously, too loud.
A dosage of your caliber, I’ve kept.
After years of independence, I’m proud
to remember everything that you swept.
I have hidden a dark past from the start.
But you unlocked almost every door then.
I was stupefied when I’ve wrecked your heart.
Winter turned to a lonely summer when
too sudden I’ve lost myself in the wind,
too sudden our horizon faded, thinned.
