Wonderful Illusion

I run to you
You turn out to be a mirage
I stare in confusion
Were you ever true?
Did I make you up?
Are you a wonderful illusion?
I touch your hand
There is no warmth
Just static electricity
I think I understand
You are physically gone
But within me you live for eternity
I kiss your lips
You vanish into thin air
Another daydream
I kiss your fingertips
You stay a second longer
You know how much that means
Are you a ghost?
Is this your restless soul?
Is it comfort you seek?
Do you feel lost?
Come sit by me
There is peace in words we don’t speak
I can feel you around me
I foolishly promise you
Everything is going to be fine
You have found me
You are never forgotten
My heart will always be your shrine


Sleep has been evading me
Lying on a strange bed in a strange room
The pillows are persuading me
But there’s no comfort here without you
I restlessly toss and turn
My mind is perceiving the bed as steel
With nails and fire, it pricks and burns
Your distance arouses the insomniac in me
I have been studying the ceiling
And I imagine seeing your beautiful face
Are you peacefully sleeping?
Or are you awake feeling lost and displaced?
I don’t smell you in the sheets
This generic softener doesn’t remind me of home
Wherever I can feel your heartbeats
Is where I want to be, is where I belong
The hours are slowly passing by
And sunrays are shyly sneaking through the window
But they don’ reflect on your eyes
It’s just another morning without your morning glow


P.S. I miss you


Please accept this overpriced coffee
Take your time. Smell it and drink it slowly
Enjoy the ambiance and my company today
Who knows if tomorrow we’d cross pathways
Tell me a secret that no one else knows
Allow me a glimpse into your inner soul
Share a dark tear or a broken smile
Make these five minutes worth the while
Feel the liberty in sharing truths with a stranger
Resist the hesitation and insensible sense of danger
What is it that defines who you are?
What is it that keeps you together and cuts you apart?
Believe me it was not my intention to see your tears
But I can’t say I’m not glad that I was here
Let’s talk about the weather and other trivial subjects
Let’s ignore disappointments and deep regrets
I love your nervous slightly embarrassed laugh
How do you feel letting go of what you had?
It’s running safely in my bloodstream
A piece of you shall forever remain within me
Forget your job, your family and friends
This is a moment that shall last after it ends
Could I interest you in a secret of mine?
There was once this time…

The End

I can see the flames turning into dust
The morning that did not last quite enough
The memories turning into undesirable rust
Of something that once resembled love
The bittersweet taste of finales lingers
The salty tears that resonate regrets
Like missing an amputated finger
You know it’s not there yet you always forget 
You keep seeing flashbacks in your head
Life seems much more beautiful in hindsight
We obliterate the bad and think of good instead
In the darkness, you always visualize light
Meaningless words that are politely exchanged
Of weather and other trivial subjects
Of promises we won’t keep when we’re estranged
Of emotions comparable to those of inanimate objects
Plans crumbling down like a Lego tower
Pathways leading into uncharted territories
Seconds weigh down on us like hours
As we realize we came to the end of our story
