Because it could be your life. Because it's definitely mine.

just a... by liekeroomijs
I want you to know
one thing.
sleepless night by liekeroomijs.
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
melodies and desires by liekeroomijs.
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
my fair lady by liekeroomijs.
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
marry me by liekeroomijs.
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
sea needs water by liekeroomijs.
Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.
whiter than white by liekeroomijs.
if suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.
confused by liekeroomijs.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
all the world by liekeroomijs.
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
''doo doo doo'' by liekeroomijs.
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
season change by liekeroomijs.
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
all time high by liekeroomijs.
if each day a flower 
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in my all that fire is repeated,
hand in hand by liekeroomijs.
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine

Photos by liekeroomijs.

I've been reckless.
I've seen a few ghosts from past lives recently.
I've greeted the dawn.
I've settled some human theories.
