Poem – “Vanilla – Frozen Sugar”

Vanilla – Frozen Sugar

Virgin love for a green-eyed waverer
Alone in the world beneath the stairs
Never a heart beats there, never it dies
In the tender sweetness of after-dreams
Lying in the abyss, I hear his silence
Listen to the sleep of the never-born
Always my love is a stranger to me
