"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



Before I lay myself to sleep
In places where noone keeps me
I check the time
To see if the seconds are still there.
It has been an eternity since your last kiss.

Sad hours linger
Not knowing if to come or go.
They would run to you
If only they could hear
The heavy sound of your footsteps.

In unparalleled moments
Time stretches  the solitude
Breaking me under its weight.
Your hand is no longer here
To turn my key.

  1. Do remember to ask me
    How many times I came up to your door
    How many times my hand reached out for the bell…
