“It pains me so” he said

“You no longer have need of me”

“Disposable I am to you. Don’t deny it”

“You’re wrong” she said

“Nothing’s changed, I sware”

“I’m fine and so are you”

“What happened?” He asked

“I still remember when we were friends”

“But now you seem so far away”

“I’m fine” she answered

“There’s nothing wrong”

And as he left he muttered

“I know you’re not”

“You’ve never been a good liar”

“I’ll still be here, in silence”

“So you may call, and I’ll be there”

A fortress you have built
Where no one may enter
To safeguard your soul
And your people the most

A king in his castle
Beloved you are
All who enter shall be safe
None will be hurt

Behind great walls
Your flock is forever safe
And your army whole
Is always ready

“But what is this?
You want out?
I cannot allow it
I will never allow it”

“Why? Stop!
If you go out
No one knows what might happen
The world won´t like it”

“What is this?
You too?

“So it has come to this
My flock has turned
Against me they march
Confinement means death”

Behind great walls
Protected you felt
But that protection cannot be
If your own people are against you

Betrayed by your own kind
To dwell in your own guilt
To suffer in your kingdom
With no one else to know

That is your sin
And this is your payment
Condemned to death
Now burn in silence

Who are we…?

We all die, eventually
Death is not the end, nor the start
It is a checkpoint
It is a toll

Throughout our lives we live differently
Some seek quietness
Others adventure
While others seek to avoid life itself

From the moment we are born we are to gather experiences, knowledge.
Should we neglect this, the afterlife might seem terrible.
To think you have done nothing for yourself in your life can be frightening.

In order to keep experiencing and living, we should remain healthy.
Respect our bodies, and also our minds. For a mind cannot be without a body, and a body is meaningless without a mind.

However, what is truly our mind?
A mount of thoughts and functions?
A conjoined mix of feelings, ideas and plans?
A network of neurons that create a world within ourselves?
Or is it the reflection of our souls and inner beings?

And this night here I sit
as the candle burns and the light fades
One thought, and one thought only
As my drink slowly turns cold

Here I write what my heart holds
A weight turned burden as my mind flows
The key I have gifted
And hope to receive one day

A moment of stillness, as I behold
What seems to be an angel, no less and no more.
A pure imperfection that is perfect to me
And not even a dark night can hide.

And once more I lay betrayed
Images and thoughts untold, unseen, yet foreseen
As my mind plays the evil part
In this drama I call life

Diving in a sea of uncertainty
Of fears turned into nightmares
Devouring my once restored heart
It burns to ashes yet again

Cant blame no one but you
The earthquake that shook my ground
Who built my fears and shattered my soul
For it is you who I love and no one else

Don’t leave me waiting and teach me
The one thing you have yet to learn
So we can grow together in life
This lesson, this thought: this love.

I hear a voice in this night so cold
A silent scream in deepest fear
This dream is real, A whisper silent
Until I realize… It’s just a nightmare.

I lift my ears to hear outside
I barely recognize the sounds
Seems like a the wind has gotten up
Feels like the screams are rising high.

Sweet melody of rain drops falling
This mare of nights is taking over
The bitter taste of wasted love
With no regrets my door is shut

Once again in this lonely room
With crowds and noise, alone and silent
This pitch-black sky and roaring winds
The goddess cries, I know her pain

An image bestowed upon me
A lady of beautiful imperfection
Why can’t you be mine
Why can’t you exist

A storm is coming, I sense it near
It brings not peace, not mere delight
The waking moment of shattered glass
The image gone, awake at last

And once again I find myself
With voids all over, staring at this place
Sweet sound of screams and cries
The storm is out and free at last

In this moment I find myself in a state of serenity, of total connection with my thoughts. Recently I have noticed that I lost myself about a year ago. I changed for some reason I do not entirely know. I forgot part of myself, left it behind and became someone else. Unfortunately, said change was not for the best, hence I now see the need to return.

You see, I live tormented by mostly everything around me. The noise from the streets, people walking by, the concrete walls that surround me and the paved streets beneath my feet. I live in a synthetic world. We have lost our connection with nature, so no spirits walk among us. I see a tree growing in every corner, one with less life than the next. All alone, they just survive, but the spirits I barely sense in them.

It is due to this lifeless wasteland we call a city that people are disturbed. Life shatters and we lose ourselves into chaos. It´s mayhem, where living grass is replaced for concrete or synthetic grass. It keeps the green, takes the living. Useless.

The reason I came to write this is simple. Lose not yourself, but the rest. Lose your stress. Lose the car. Throw away your phone. Finally, start to listen. There are birds in the sky, trees dancing to the rhythm of the wind and water flowing underground.
I now live in order to finish my career, work fast and get to travel. Go as far away as I can from the big cities, where life travels.

Lose not yourself, but the rest. Let your mind not be poisoned.

Noises, sounds, disturbance in surround
Fumes and flames, no air to breath
Those who are to blame smile cynically
To fill their greed, despite our needs

Immortality they seek, Injustice they don´t speak
And yet we live in jungles they claim to be safe
Where the fittest survive
And the weeklings must obey

I can´t stand this, I must leave
My thoughts I cannot hear, no silence within me
A mind once lost in space
A soul once bright, now fades

I feel no essence, I feel no pain,
My mind is numb, as weak as you
I cannot flee, I must survive
I strive for peace, release my leash
This concrete forrest will bury me

Unleash the demons, unnatural
A needed process to ease the mind
Destroy it all, construct again
Their life now fading
Replenish me

I found now peace, inside this world
My mind a whole, this mind anew
I´m locked inside, I own the key
In my own world I found now peace
