A thought immersed in a fragile solitude,
Like a liberty that empties itself-
Before being seized.
A vision condemned to be the seeds of reality
Like a chiaroscuro losing-
Its balance in the light.
The suspended bridge is crumbling down
With the weight of curiosity,
We can’t see the horizon anymore-
We are walking on it.
Water drops clinging to the windowsill
Like perfidious magnets,
We have stopped running
Though we haven’t arrived.
The silent murmur of the night,
A half-burnt cigarette,
Windows open but nothing stirs.
The flickering streetlight in the distance,
Curious glimpses of the house behind.
Empty thoughts start crowding,
As the blank moon fills the eyes.
