She Was the World to Me

July 21, 2016

She was the world to me,
Everything else was keeping my breath in the vacuum.
She was my happiness,
Everything else was a life of blacks, whites and greys.
And then they took me away from her
An aneurysm,
Mad Cows,
Going broke,
Being sad.
And they took me to another world
Latin extended,
Never felt free
Under a dark sky,
Never glad.
No […]

Cinderella and the Dancing Bear

July 21, 2016

I’m sure you liked it all back then…
But how about right now?
I’m sure you liked it all back then…
But there is so much right now.
I’m sure you do relate to those cool things from long before your birth so much.
I’m sure you’re keen on the fall of USSR, and an […]

They wave to us, standing on the pavement,
His striped shirt, mustache and her long skirt,
The smiles we grew to love and remember
Will keep me warm come frosty November.
They put up with all my parents’ eccentricities,
They put up with my being the way I really am
The dense tree foliage, so warm […]

Stabs in Eclipse

July 17, 2016

They hurt you from here,
They hurt you from there,
Somebody stabs your heart.
When you stumble in the dark,
And only see a spark,
You think it’s the Great Generator.
W…what was that?
They hurt me from here,
They hurt me from there
Somebody stabs my heart.
When I stumble in the dark,
And don’t even see a spark,
I think […]

I’d left you for a girl
But I will be back
Just like you were each time
I’ve known her for so long
Ever since I was a child
I’ve been without her
Like with and without you
These days, I dream of her
And you are nowhere to be
Found in any of those dreams
She’s seen so much […]

Maze of Pipes / Lavirint cevi

July 14, 2016

Maze of Pipes
A waterfall baby,
A dream from the past,
Fading away to that old year.
I won’t forgive,
As there’s nothing to forgive,
I might be breathing water,
But I’m not water-driven.
Nothing more than a maze of pipes,
Squeaky-clean on the outside
With rust bleeding in them.
That’s what he was,
Some weak lines.
That’s the only thing he can […]
