losing sight of the sea
here i am strolling back to reality
back to where lost weeks have been
lost in the grasp of a continuality
holding on to my being
i should sleep to be able to wake up
to hear the thunders to my skin
whistling the echo
of a fast-paced dream
a film circling in my mind
flicks of memory glances of him
i feel the numbness of the air
as i swallow in deeply
tightening the grip
weakening my stand
i could almost touch
i could almost feel
i could almost taste
the bitter-sweet nuisance of the sea
drifting me afloat...
and until now
yes, until now,
letting me be.

This should have been for last week's topic: The Sea (la mer), but yeah, it still applies for this week's theme.
