Empty days


These days are so empty,

such as wells

when they run out of water...

So empty of dreams

as dreams from realization

So dead of life

as death by promise.




You are a lonely person.

You live alone in a house.

Maybe some will pass by.

Years later, you spend your days alone.

Every time you face yourself

only loneliness exists to remind you

how did you come into the world alone

and you will leave alone.


Between Loneliness And Solitude...



Loneliness has nowhere to turn

when you are not here...

Solitude is not the same with loneliness

Solitude is romance with you.

Oh! Soul!

Window with a view the feeling...

How many nights have you clothed

loneliness with desire?

and you walked on a tightrope

urging the dream to escape the rut?

And fear became

a shadow in the background,

into four walls,

two windows,

two doors.





Suddenly, the chamber lit up.

Love has come and everything went smoothly.
