YOUR RIVER

By Achilleas Michailides

The waves uplift me
Into the Light I soar
Rotating and dissolving
See the tendrils of oblivion claiming me

When I die, baby, I want to become your breath

Borne on harmonies
flowing with the rhythm
of your river

Let me deep into you dive
Dilute me with your essence
merge, assimilate, incorporate

When I become reborn, baby, I want to be the blood in your veins...


Achilleas Michailides is a poet and fiction writer trying to ignore the limited mobility from his bad leg. This will be his first poetry publication. He lives over the pond, in Germany.
