Spot the differences

Check out the two pictures
Beware of wild creatures!
They look exactly the same, don’t they?
And yet, this is not the case
Take a closer look
Sometimes you need to let go of the hook
And then reality will show its hidden face
Everything is at the right place
Dreams may come true
It only depends on you.

How…?

How long must we wait
To be, once for all, safe?
How far shall we go
To let our dreams flow?
How many words do I have to say
To show you I love you every day?
How much loneliness do I have to bare
To prove you that I really care?
How old will I be
When you decide to stay with me?
How fast can we run
Just to enjoy life and have fun?
How well do you know me
To trust our love and feel free?
How often will you deny
To spread your wings and fly?
Don’t push yourself too hard
Be gentle with your own heart
Take your time
Being in love is not a crime
Before waving goodbye
Give it a try!

Room with a view

From my window I see you
Glazed eyes, deep blue
From my window I see us
On the line, waiting for the bus
Do you remember
That sweet december?
Christmas fuss, sparkling lights
And a smooth kiss at midnight
From my window I see the mountains
I think loud of our great expectations
From my window I see a tiny boat
One day, I’ll take you away from the coast
From my window I see the ocean
Life is always in motion
From my window I see the whole universe
And I just listen to Mother Earth.

Darkness and Light

You are yin
I am yang
You feel old
I’m still young
You’re down to earth
I enjoy the extreme
You are realistic
I live my dreams
You eat salty food
I prefer sweets
You feel safe at home
I travel around the world
You are surrounded by people
I prefer staying on my own
You swear by the moon
I walk under the sun
You don’t go out often
I’m always having fun
You are the night
I am the day
You stay on the shadow
I crave for the light
You worry about tomorrow
I just live today.

Love letter

If only I could sing
To write you a beautiful song
If only I could paint
To offer you the most impressive portrait
If only I could bake
To prepare you a delicious cake
If only I could fly
To take you away with me
If only I could play the piano
To wrap you up in my melody
If only I were rich
To show you the whole world
If only I were immortal
To live with you forever
If only I were a magician
To avoid you from being sick
I feel insignificant and ashamed
Because I’m only able
To give you a stupid love letter.

Mirage

Am I dreaming?
Or is this real?
I feel like floating
In the darkest waters
My body is light
And my spirit
Is far away from here
The sun burns my face
Whilst my feet are cold
Please, don’t wake me up
I’d rather prefer the unreal
Although it’s ephemeral
Because everything changes
In the blink oy an eye.

Dreams

Take me to the theory land
Because in theory
Everything will to be all right

Don’t wake me up
Not today nor tomorrow
Let me live in the fairytale for a while

I’m not ready for your world yet
I need more time to heal my soul
Wish me good luck

You know where to find me
Between one thing and another
I’ll be living my dreams.

A gust of wind

Do you remember the pink house, up on the hill?
Ask me to meet you there and I will.
Do your remember thinking life was a fairytale?
Drawing fishes that looked like whales.
Do you remember the blue sea and the golden sand?
We wished those times would never end.
Do you remember the scorching sun in the orange sky?
That day, we promised that our love would never die.
Do you remember our deepest dreams?
They were blown away by the wind.

No man’s land

They spend their lives running away
Escaping war, starvation, floods, diseases
They leave their family and friends behind
No time for tears or goodbyes
We call them foreigners, refugees, migrants
But we tend to forget that we are not so different
They are just human beings trying to survive.

Fast food
Fast love
Fast drink
Fast children
Fast job
Fast money
Fast friends
Fast life
Fast death
Play it again?
Game over.
