Beyond the sea

A little piece of another life from beyond the sea
Came to shake my own life by this side
Then it returned to join its totality
Though a piece of myself disappeared with it

I stare now at the boats dividing the tide
Waiting to hear a song already forgotten
Waiting for a poem to be sung so my ears redeem
Though its lines have not been written yet

So much fog I can’t even see where I’m stepping
Dirty, humid, foggy fog that bothers sailors
Don’t distract me this time, I begged
Mermaids calling me from the depths, I’m certainly gone
