Manolis Aligizakis

What you never realized
though had great dreams of

creates a void in your heart
like the emptiness an urn leaves

when taken off its stand
and air filling its void

replenishes the form of a new urn
not different from the original

only more transparent and
mostly aching in absence

like your heart for the dream
you never turned into reality
