“You’re dreaming of escaping again,
aren’t you?” –
the courage whispered to her softly.
“But your heart is trembling, isn’t it?
So, ensconce here, in this safety,
shut your eyes, don’t see the world
and the stars,
shut your heart
don’t let it fly beyond
spaces and constellations,
locking yourself up is your best salvation” –
All these venomous words uttered by fear,
you stumble on it perpetually,
all these words that penetrate
your heart, like a devil in a land holy
….are a scintilla of your mind,
spread those mighty wings toward the light.
Are you dreaming of escaping again?
Open your eyes and do it this morning!
Waiting for the snow
We need snow for kisses,
I’m a snowflake in the corners of your lips.
Once you inhale me,
I’ll become your syringe
of sweet tortures
that blossom in your blood vessels,
once you see me,
you’ll know I’m not a desert
but an avalanche
that crumbles your bones
then, suddenly, I’m a snowflake
landing on your heart’s corners
and I’ll perch there for an eternity,
waiting for the snow patiently.
Your sorrow is beautiful
Your sorrow is beautiful,
dazzling, in fact,
and if your eyes burn down to the soul,
burst in flames wild and invincible,
you are alive,
nothing can erase you now
when your pain stands as a reminder!
Remember these tears,
they are crystal,
remember and release
all the crestfallen sighs this instant.
