Literature Text

down the old, cracked road

I came

eager heart knocking on my throat

with every passing mile

and the good old Gabriel

smiling down at me


from a white, cracked cup

I sipped my tea

listening to the bay

calling from the distance

her horizons wide open

like a soft, long-missed embrace


in stoic, cracked rocks

I found my abalone treasures

and with love sifting

through blistered toes

I shimmered with the waves

tears running down burnt nose


and as I look through the crack

in a cottage window

feasting on late summer

from a cracked plate

I cannot help but pray


for the universe

to let me too

slip through the cracks

and disappear


for the universe

to finally let me

come home


...

Finally made it back to West Cork after several years of forced separation and I cried from joy and relief when standing in the ocean. The only place where I really feel at home. The hope of moving there in the next few years keeps me going through 50h working weeks, studying and other crap.

Aw thank you! I'm working hard like mad to make it happen. Working full time and in my spare time studying. I need to find a fully remote job to move to West Cork. My current one could be done entirely from home (web development) but boss is obsessed with micromanaging so I'm tied to the office. :/


There's another piece about West Cork in my gallery if you're curious, a little prosetry called Schull Bay wonders.

Yes... In the city I just go through life numb and stressed, West Cork opens a whole variety of profound, positive feelings in me. There's another piece about West Cork in my gallery if you're curious, a little prosetry called Schull Bay wonders.
