Spark

wrist_cut_show_by_ShiNoKoe

I started my day as usual, checking all the orders, prices, deliveries, all the things I had missed the afternoon before.
My eyes turned towards her empty desk. So strange that she, the one keeping everyone terrorised, the ruthless boss, she was not there… But she survived, I thought.
I closed my eyes and saw again the movie of yesterday’s afternoon. She cutting her wrists in the bathroom. Me stumbling over her. My eyes meeting her unhappy eyes. And that deep feeling that in the middle of her lifetime crisis I saw for the first time a spark of humanity.

100 words

this is my entry for the 100 Words challenge  of this week, on Velvet Verbosity.

100-Word-Challenge-300x231


Thought

Life is an endless journey and lesson. And if there’s one lesson that marked my life is how much the loss, lack or presence of love can influence a destiny.

This thought goes to all those who have experienced or feel right now the extreme lack of love and apreciation in their life. This feels very heavy on  an unloved and empty heart. There are many out there thinking of suicide , thinking low of themselves or forgetting all the beauty of life because there’s no hand to hold them, nobody to tell them  a good word, because they have just lost someone that meant the world to them.

So if you happen to read my post and if it reaches your heart, if you have no love, no hand to hold you, no good word all day long, here’s my love, here’s my hand. You are beautiful. Life is beautiful. It takes only a moment and the sincere love of a honest heart to lift you up.


My Soul Is Silence

5

So I’m quiet
And my soul is silence
The quiet of all quiet
And the silence within silences.

And my eyes are closed
Closed upon my heart
So that I can see,
See better who you are.

And sometimes fear screams
For my running away,
While my love says
To stay.

You hold the key
For my soul.
If you hear my loud silence
I will.

Music for My Heart

“Well I was moving at the speed of sound.
Head-spinning, couldn’t find my way around, and
Didn’t know that I was going down.
Yeah, yeah.
Where I’ve been, well it’s all a blur.
What I was looking for, I’m not sure.
Too late and didn’t see it coming.
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could’ve been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away.

Somehow, I couldn’t stop myself.
I just wanted to know how it felt.
Too strong, I couldn’t hold on.
Yeah, yeah.
Now I’m just tryin’ to make some sense
Out of how and why this happened.
Where we’re heading, there’s just no knowing.
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could’ve been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away.

From your face, your eyes
Are burning to me.
You saved me, you gave me
Just what I need.
Oh, just what I need.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could’ve been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away.

And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away”
