I carry your name nailed in the back of my hand, so deep that it can no longer be heard. There, at the bottom small and contingent you play with being possible.
You sneak in through my clumsiest gestures, without prior notice nor measure. And in a sort of understanding by not understanding, I set the boundaries so that you can be free: Today you must renounce giving account.
That night everything happened as if by chance. The hardest part of mine to assume stood while you got rid of your weight. Then I was able to see your flaming tongues ignited into the dance of the dead. We arrived to the end where we start from.
Who am I to do or not? It was you who made my nature wild. What where you thinking? You are that way, you give it all. We, always all.
Time and time again, the theme is always the same, how many times does an angel fall? It is that, what is ours; a wounded feeling, a tear; touching each other like this.
What’s wrong? Say it clear: you feel lonely in the interpreted world. No one remembers you any longer, but sadness. Will you ever end?
Come! Set me on fire!
