Seconds

What was all this for?

a few happy seconds
in a day full of suffering.

it is as it is.

Life is just life

I want to feel it.

I don’t want to see
only images in my head.
I want to feel
what you feel
Feel it on my skin.
Tell me until I believe.

And what was all this for?

I thought I loved you

I thought I loved you
but it turned out not to be true.
I don’t know if I regret it or not.
I thought I loved you
you just let me think like I did.
Your eyes told me that
your intense glances
which made me want more.
I was more and more delighted
I couldn’t stop thinking about you.
But all this was like fog.
I thought I loved you
I thought I could feel something.
You had so much feelings for me
as if you wanted to love for us two.
I thought I loved you
but I saw it in your eyes
the love I wanted to feel for you
I thought I would love you
please don’t blame me
for the love you had for me.

Missing

I achieved everything
what I wanted.
Worked hard for many years
to be somebody
as I wanted.
I don’t understand
I’m still missing something
Is that you?
Your absence.
I abandoned
the memory of you.
Didn’t want to think
about you somewhere else
not being here
next to me.
I’m missing something
I don’t understand
I should be happy
as I wanted.
Don’t I have everything?
I have everything
but you.
