The late morning light gently opened his eyes as he remembered that she will come.
She said she will wait for him there, where they have met last year, her feet in the waves, her eyes on the vast skyline, waiting for him, the only man she had ever loved.
Damn!!! It was noon… Her plane landed 3 hours ago… He had to find her!!!
Rushing through the stairs he ran out on the way to the beach, the same path where they kissed last year.
And as his feet touched the sand he saw her:
Paradise in her eyes.

This is my entry for the Friday Fictioneers
life is a journey
that makes us wise and connects
our minds and souls.
regardless of pain
we must all learn to share
our unbounded love.
This song is for you
My love, my freedom,
The breath that I’m dead without
The light of my eyes.
I am nothing without you
Only a broken puzzle, only a locked cage,
Only a blind bird lingering in eternal darkness
With no voice and no wings.
My heart is empty without you
My arms are nothing but
Dead branches with no leaves when you’re away.
You lift me above this existence.
Life is a complicated game. One day God sends us here and the moment we inhale for the first time the clock starts ticking, the game begins and the button “PLAY” flashes, though God is pressing the button, not us…
I think the most valuable thing in this life is to be myself. I have showed my soul to many, but only few have proven worthy of my trust. I have taken a lot of risks, calculated or not, in accepting people, in getting close or being a friend. I have been used, lied to, judged, disappointed, betrayed, misunderstood and sometimes loved. After all this experience I am absolutely true to myself, I live simple, I work a lot, I can still dream and I am a loner by choice.
Yes, many have judged me by my accent, body, job, money, clothes, past, nationality… You name it, people will always find a reason to judge. But to be honest I really don’t care. I will never amaze anyone with the clothes I wear, for I will take nothing material with me on the other side. Why buy then clothes that cost so much that make others choke? Only to please others? Only to feel better because others are envious? Or just to tickle my ego? Well, none of the three options represents me.
Ego is a beast that I have tried to keep in a leash, but my heart is another story. I guess we should only show our hearts to those that deserve it. The ones that can handle us at our worst, when we are depressed , down , feel low and have no energy and no light within us. Because whoever cannot handle us in our worst moments does not deserve us in our best times either.
And there are many things about this life. Yes, it goes on , with or without us. Yes, we never know when it ends. Yes, we should live every moment as the last one. But most of all, remember, it’s never too late to stop, think, ask ourselves questions about our life. It’s never too late to change things in our life if we find ourselves on the wrong path. It’s never too late to end something that is causing us trauma, or to learn new things, or to raise our head with dignity and become stronger.
There’s nobody out there to make you stronger, dear friends. Don’t rely on anyone, people will mostly disappoint you. You have all a best friend , all of you. That best friend is yourself. You have all inside the energy and strength to change your life if you are unhappy. All it takes is just to realise how very strong you are deep inside. You don’t need to be strong for anyone, be strong for yourself. Look in the mirror and be kind to yourself and smile. You are the most important person in your life.
It’s never late to
change something, you cannot be
other than YOURSELF.
