Saltpeter 04:08
There’s a treasure buried down under an island. You never tell where to find it cause the past makes your heart feel sad for moments you would have never had. But from time to time, you allow the hunt to start, knowing the wooden chest is covered in saltpeter and its iron is rustier than a horseshoe, fragile as thin glass. Starting to read your insecurities and masked weaknesses as if it was a map, knowing the red cross is far, the journey through water will be worth the time passed. Lungs full of hope that the box is filled with pure gold but tired of the fact that the tide goes up and down. Making sure it’s not an easy quest to dig the shovel and realizing it will be fully hidden once again the morning after. People have limited patience. And you know it better than anyone. So, after these last sunsets, if I find your treasure, don’t force me to throw it off board, for I’ve lost many things. (But none of them thus far will ever feel so close to losing everything.)

Vestiges 03:17
“My son, this is where your father wants to eternally lie. If I die before you, throw his ashes all across this wonderful site and remember him as a child diving in its waters with a smile.” Don’t let me do what you say. Wait until I’m drowning in grief. Blinded by your honest intentions no one ever meant like you did. With words unspoken you’ve called the wind to show its worth. With words unspoken you’ve called the sun to brag about its warmth.

Perennial 02:37
Turn the page and smell the pages (like you always do) that I’m writing with precious care, hoping your lips truly read a reason to stay. At night awake, wonder if it’s something you’d let go. At night awake, do you fight for those who you’d never let go? If the path I walk is beside you, I don’t care if there are highs and lows as long as you’re there and show me you care with time and affection. Time and affection.

Polarity 04:10
The blushings again. You ask me in bed if I would be able of being part of someone some day. If able or willing, I don’t even know if I want the life I am living. Do you also hate being all alone as much as you miss being on your own? I’m afraid that you won’t be here one day but maybe I won’t be me one day. I wanna be part of a love that’s real. So magic and sincere it would bring me close to tears. But tell me how, if I’m old enough to think but I’m young enough to dream. Tell me why every day that goes by and I try, this love looks more like a coffin to me. One step closer to death, I’m terrified to meet someone that loves me one day. One step closer to death, show me how to be us and also me anyway. It pains me to feel everything as debris, as if temporary. Novelty gets old, it’s hard to accept. The older I get, the clearer it gets: a life by your side is the reason I care.

Tangled 03:00
This calm peace is suffocating me, like drowning in oxygen. Where the fuck did the pain go? Did I shed it away, change from blue to grey? I feel nothing, Everything I feared before. It’s not the past what haunts me or the future what I fear. It’s the present where I can’t live in. Prisoner of time and space.

Whitney 03:38
She said “I saw the moon in flames and didn’t feel a thing”. She put her hands on her face and started to loosen her knots with tears of rage. “My mother wants to die. She says she’s in pain and hates her life, so that’d be killing two birds with one stone (or three, if you count me)” I’d see her ghosts in the room every time she opened her mouth. “She started weak but when the cancer started to leak, she said she had ants beneath her skin. And I’m happy just because, but when I go back home I feel those ants hatching and making our house their own.” You left me but your smile will always be with me. You left me, your kindness is still watching over me. “When I sleep I picture Nemesis: my mother blows her head out with a fucking 12-gauge. I try to stop her but the ants are eating me alive. And I hope that one day we’ll be able to forgive, but until then, I’d rather hold hands by the bed. Much so, I’ve become both the lion and the lamb. If you want it so, mom, go. Just go. I’ll keep the burden and tell everybody well: the world will be a darker place for those who remain.”
