"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

letters

you know

many hours you stood

in front of my heart

and you dropped your

shadow over me

my bones are thin since I’ve been waiting

on the gate of the world

watching how others die

of a desease that spreaded

like the famine

now in the middle of the night

when I’m too tired to sleep

I write you

letters.
