Memento

Take me away
Be my afterglow, my retrograde amnesia.

Let me fly on your wings and set me free.

I do not want to stay in this so hurtful city any longer. Every time I set my feet outside the door memories pushes me down.

Everything I lay my gaze on holds a memento in the framework of my life.

I won’t say that only negative tokens pervade the place I grew up in, because that would be a lie.

But what do you do when those aren’t enough to enlighten your smile?

You search for something more. 

You become greedy. 

Wanting true happiness in a world devoid of memories.

Lights

Soft smiles drawn on pinky cheeks,

Eyes who don’t look, but scrutinize,

In a curious way, the world before them, 

just like an infant who sees it for the first time.

The road was long. Hard. Tumultuous.

It wasn’t easy to overcome. Not in the slighest.

When emotions take entirely possession of your mind

You can’t do anything but submit to their sweet enchantment;

As a deadly potion, they slowly kill you,

While you keep drinking from them.

And, when everything seems lost, yourself included, the Angel came.

His wings sent away the darkness and his touch gave me a new life inside.

The Phoenix needed an Angel to reborn this time.

Fire sparked from the inside to the outside, holding the celestial being in a tight hug.
