It feels a little bit like this...

It can be a bit depressing when I'm sad.
It can be a bit cheesy when I'm in love.
In the end, it's all about how it feels in the moment...

Future memories

Sometimes in life, on a completely ordinary day, in the middle of a mixed crowd between people you know and people you’re about to meet, regardless of which social gathering that might be, you will introduce yourself (or get introduced to) people who you might never remember, even seconds afterwards.

Now that sounds harsh, but yet, that’s exactly how it happens.

But then, in exceptional few times, you will meet a person or two who you will end up having a natural full and interesting conversation with.
You will not only remember their name, but you’ll also feel like you’ve connected with somebody new and that memory will stay with you and if you’re lucky enough to understand how rare that is, you will find a way to make room in your life so they can come back and become a person you won’t ever forget.

I like to imagine that, that first conversation shared with these special people are our future memory of their presence in our lives, as if, for a second in the moment we meet each other, we’re allowed a glimpse of the moments we’re about share.
And the natural connection is only two people recognizing the familiar feeling of finally spotting an old friend again, as if you’ve been separated from each other for a while but now have been given the gift of coming back to where you started.

Seize the moment. When that happens, follow up, invite them over, create some memories. Regardless of what happens in your lives, be there for each other, catch up, travel together, go on adventures and share your whole heart and soul with them. It’s rare and it won’t happen too often throughout life.

And every time that it happens, smile: you’ve got someone for life!

This distance between us

Empty half words
Exchanged in the clouds
Between us, this blur
The blues, the doubts
Something unsaid
Stretched in endless nights
Your name, a reminder
The memory of your face,
Of your kindness, of your heart
Haunting my every thought
There are pieces of you all around
First I smile, then I get sad
To be losing you in this weird gap
You’re here but you’re gone
You’re present in your absence
By replaying every single moment
Your color is painted in every corner
Your name is every word anyone says
All the songs played in background, you
Still, nothing
Faded and vanished
Strangers from another lives
Who tripped on one another,
For a second,
Never got to say ‘thank you’
Never got to say ‘goodbye’

Until you get back here

In every picture
In every smile you see
I find happy moments
During my sorrow
That’s called coping
That’s called missing you
For every moment you’re not around
I need one more beautiful sunset
One more dip in the water
One more life distraction
For every smile I can’t share with you
For every story I’m not telling you
For every part of your day I’m left out
I need one more summer night
Surrounded by friends and guitars
One more hobby
To speed up time
Until you get back here

Magical Sunset

A magical sunset
Got me thinking of you
Its warmth, its peacefulness
Reminded me of your presence
As it went down in the sea
Your absence hurt a little deeper
The kisses I won’t get
The love we won’t share
And how unprepared I feel
To be completely heartbroken
By you
Still, I dare
As if compelled by your light
Consumed by your energy
You are just like the sun,
And this sunset…
If I could only, but I can’t…
So I’ll love you with what I got
Until there’s nothing to spare
And in a magical place,
Perhaps, you may wake up one day
To look at me with the same eyes I look at you
What a lovely day that would be…

Living in the surface
And I stand here
staring at myself
after a few rounds outside
facing this encounter I’ve been trying to avoid
from denial to acceptance
it’s not about her, 
it’s about all people in the world
all the living things
that have every lived and will ever live
and how deeply we connect
with the same feelings of sorrow and desire
hidden underneath so many walls
keeping us apart
it’s about a lack of empathy
a fear of such greatness
that risks humanity as its core
as we choose to walk alone, instead
to protect ourselves
to be an unbreakable mess
of mended pieces 
So here I am with myself
and I am, for sure, hollow
as I see a hole of the size of the universe
cutting my heart from side to side
wondering where did it all go
when did I start losing it along the way
and how absolutely empty I am without it
Yet, I feel too much
all the time, in every inch of my skin
with every wind that kisses my face
with every sunlight warming my days
and because of all this feeling
this feeling too much, all the time
I don’t know where to go
where to take it
as if sharing is suddenly forbidden 
and its heaviness is now my own to carry
It’s not her
it’s all of us
everyday, avoiding contact
living in the surface
scared.

Puzzled Gaps

Your silence is too loud
Your distance, too close to my skin
Our gaps too puzzled
I’m all over the place
I’m spinning around in my thoughts
Neither here nor there
I’ve left you a thousands times
A thousand times, I came back
Letting go seems impossible
Somehow you’re too deep within
Why? I can’t tell
I can only feel, recognize the rush
There’s a quiet anticipation
Taking over my body, some nights
Imagining you in details
In moments I have yet to witness
Imagining a one sided love
This extreme desire that won’t reach you
It doesn’t leave my world
It doesn’t find you in any corner
You go on, without me
Not knowing that you do
Unaware of my loneliness
Of my every thought of you
It’s been long enough
We get nowhere
You won’t let me
I never knew such craving
Such delusion for someone I can’t have
If I sleep now, I rest
To wake up looking for you.

Rewind

Let me start by the end
Guessing who’s heart will be broken
Yours or mine
The tears we’re gonna cry
As we say our goodbyes…
I can’t help it,
It’s the wrong order
I know,
It just happened one too many times
Highs and lows
New love, old wound
Here we go again
Here I go, still
On a loop,
I’ll make you smile
Then I’ll turn around
No promises,
Just right now
We do it anyway
Kiss, fight, make up
Knowing it all ends on break up
It doesn’t matter, does it?
I’ll jump one more time
And if we start by the end,
Let’s rewind.

Worlds within worlds

Worlds within worlds
Surrounding us, unnoticed
Shifting between the calm and the storm
Eyes closed, listen to the wind
Underneath water, watch a different life
Touch her face,
Get underneath her skin
Look through her eyes
Come inside
Miles apart, made of the same
Song on repeat
Filling an empty bench
Stopping time,
Changing the pace
Nostalgia of something about to happen
Restless heart, restless mind
She doesn’t care
She goes by, carrying on
One step after another
A coded routine
Unbreakable
Of being alone,
Of being one self
Hope is the question
It’s also the answer
To the ones who seek for it
I’ll go on now, on my own
Let this go now
And move on
Holding up for something else
I know it’s coming soon

The lady on the bench
Has wandering thoughts
Far away, 
As if remembering some other life
Her distance self
Or many other versions of herself
She sits still
Head down,
Hands on her knees
As the leaves fall from the trees
Faded yellow shades
Mixed with faded dreams and memories
I wonder what she’s been through
What’s on her mind
She barely moves
Time ain’t got nothing on her
In her own pace 
She’s the lady on the bench
The same, that one day, I’ll be

The distance

The distance
This space in between people
Silly, silly gaps
Disconnected by thoughts
Of being different, of feeling different
And we’re all made of the same
Coming and going
As so many have come and gone
We grow apart,
For absolutely no reason at all
Sleeping alone with empty hearts
Wasting love in every breath
As we refuse to blend together
To see without walls
To give and accept the world as it is
Silly, silly world
Reinventing ways to separate itself
Into foolish categories
Meaningless associations
To describe us in so many intangible words
When obviously there is nothing made to set us apart
Only ourselves, our choices, our own limitations
Illusions of a better life that’ll never exist
As we live, as we die,
For what?
Love, love more
Give, give it all
Be, all we can be
With each other, with everything
Otherwise, there’s nothing…
