"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


Layer after layer of oblivion
Covering charades and memories
All her colored feelings , the days and nights
Her poetry never heard and the loneliness layed by her feet.
Fallen asleep after a yesterday with no tomorrow
In a life of no future, in a dream of no end
Hides her soul unable to tell
The time to leave from the time to forever wait.
Yet there you are, in front of this cold eternal gate.
Reach out your hand and turn the key
Bring her back to life, cast light on the shadows
Open her eyes, set her secret free.
