Teaser:

Me and You

Breathe inside this water
Open your eyes
You will see me
Waiting for you
An album of tragedies
Floats past us
Don’t touch it
Undisturbed by us
It revolves around you
Around me
An invisible circle
Impenetrable
I cannot be you
You will not become me

Tears will connect us
Mine will flow from my eyes
And yours?
