Ophelia's Walking

Ophelia’s Walking

Walking with a broken heart
The lonely dance
Of farewell and goodbyes.

Walking to the life
Giving birth an end
Born again in light.

With a smile
Goes and goes
The eternal march

Embracing death
with open hands…
There it lies

A naked body
A drowned heart.
And the mournful act
That will also walk.
