Emily’s house

Listen
what it’s whispering on your ear,
the wind.
Compose the deck of cards,
and I’ll tell you the past,
it’s water.
Ask for my hand,
and I’ll grab the edge of my dress.
We’ll dance together
wind dances with water.
We’ll create waves,
which cover the sun.

Leave

You’re trying to encourage me
but that’s all nonsense
treacherous leeches
in crystal clear water
Don’t try to do anything
to speak, to think
I’m telling you I have nothing
nothing to remember, believe me
.

Nobody

all this was just an illusion.

You’re nobody
to me
I don’t know you
you’re not here

who I really was for you?

I am nobody
to you
You don’t know me
I’m not here

Somebody else

I drew you
on a piece of paper.
I wanted you
to be the way
I wanted to see you.
I felt disappointed
when it turned out
that you were somebody else.
Not the one drawn
on a piece of paper.
