"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

Alcatraz

1333469-1366x768-desktopnexus-com

the thrill of long lashes
the struggle of thoughts in golden cage
fists  held so tight around the cool the bars that they whiten
but it’s all right
we reside in an Alcatraz of love
surrounded by waves undergoing constant boiling
in our cell it’s warm, it’s good
we make love when we feel like it
time becomes aphrodisiac
and we feed ourselves with ourselves at fixed times
the guardians come to open the little door
scream love eachother a lot
dig long tunnels through your souls
from one towards the other
do not rush
obviously
escape is not a solution
the prison beyond waters
has all cells occupied
and they hate  at fixed hours
after the compulsory walks
among uncertainties

“înfiorarea genelor lungi
zbaterea gândurilor în colivie aurită
pumnii strânşi până la albire în jurul gratiilor reci
dar e bine
domiciliem într-un alcatraz al iubirii
înconjurat de valuri supuse fierberii permanente
în celula noastră e cald e bine
facem amor când avem chef
timpul devine afrodisiac
şi ne hrănim la ore fixe cu noi înşine
vin gardienii deschid uşiţa
strigă iubiţi-vă mult
săpaţi tuneluri lungi prin sufletele voastre
de la unul către celălalt
sunteţi condamnaţi pe viaţă la iubire
nu vă grăbiţi
evident
evadarea nu e o soluţie
închisoarea de dincolo de ape
are toate celulele ocupate
şi se urăşte la ore fixe
după plimbările obligatorii
printre incertitudini”
