Blue Dreams
Blue Dreams/Ode to Mother There was a mother I once had, an unmaternal demon, a good-willed Tragic, cursed by black magic, probably, immersed in a hell of childhood trauma, hate and self-satisfaction; her false declarations will be carried to the grave. All...

Everything
Everything How can I be proud  if I am ashamed? If love is a secret, I’m keeping it so. How can I have faith if I am a sinner? If love is a regret, I am doomed to rue. Still, the time goes on and I live partially: keeping one eye open, sleeping one eye clos...

Life
Why can’t you just be happy? You could fall to domestica, have love and the small things. ‘Twould be a dream realized.  Instead, the fires lit in you destroy, destruct and damage you.  Living is a simple joy, but life is Hell, a curse, a void. Sleeping come...
