Night

srse

let the night swallow
the last traces of my smile
fading slowly as I dare not to speak anymore
let the darkness devour
the last thoughts, so that my spirit can rest
let me die for today. turn off the light
so I can get back to life when I see you again

The car stopped on the narrow road, in front of the old house.

He could not believe the shape in which the house ended after those years when he was far away. Now that she was sick he thought of the old family house for a quiet life. He must find a cure, he must find a way to save her, he must…

Oh darling, look at it,  we’ll have to repair,  paint and clean it all… My God, so much work…. she sighed looking at him with love.

No, darling, don’t you worry. I’ll build you a new life.

Listening

She is the only one listening
They might call her a simple cat
But she is her only true friend,
More faithful than any human
Her extra pair of eyes,
Smarter than a dog,
Faster than a jackal.

The old lady and the cat
One can see them everywhere
Never apart.

After a long painful day
She is the only one that sees
The effort it takes to simply walk.

In the end I think
They are not a cat and an old lady
But two angelic souls
Taking care of each other
Trapped in this concentrationary dimension
Called life.

Full Snow Moon

Full snow moon reigning
In a castle of cold stars
Looking down on us.

Full soul solitude
Of heart that hears no word and
Has no hand to hold.

Full quiet of world
In this majestic moment
Of absolute pain.

Music for My Heart


Silence

immobile
in this immense purple burn
wildfire
on my aching soul
i have no strength to move
so i surrender this beauty
quiet passage
from life to life
