"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




Expell this endless frown
in a lifelong deportation
drop this demon fate
life is too loud
calling, calling
your burning lips
raw of all the kisses burried
in cold tombs of indifference
if there must be a dark chapter
write the death sentence for your past
in all the black venom letters you can gather
so that your next chapter can shine.

  2. “write the death sentence for your past” That is possibly one of the most powerful, liberating things I’ve heard in quite some time. It touched me. Thank you Ela.
