Dull yellow buildings, musty air
Smell of sweat, stenching dreams
Sleepless nights, ochre mornings
Windows collapsing on each other
Like bodies in a metro
Shirts sticking, eyes aching
What are they searching for ?
I can’t fathom whether they are happy or sad
Or just surviving
Long rides on hurrying roads
Smell of smoke brings you home
I count the hours you will sleep
Not more than 4 or 3
What are you searching for ?
Are you happy or are you sad
I see the blinking lights, in a blackless sky
Blinding the stars, the noise of cars
I like the smell of smoke now
Mixed with the cold
It clings to childhood eyes and happy time
I leave my glasses to be covered in layers of dust
(no more rose tinted glasses for me)
I will think of you today when I fall asleep
Under the cloudy heaviness and hopes as fresh as april
Heart as ripe as the mangoes in may
I wish I could think of you everyday
But it is not hard to forget
So I selfishly dream of lakes, poets and lyrical loves
While the clock pulls your strings relentlessly for hours

I’m also writing to make you know of the really good encounter my daughter found using your web page. She noticed some issues, which include how it is like to have a great giving character to have the mediocre ones quite simply fully understand some problematic subject matter. You undoubtedly did more than people’s desires. Thanks for churning out those great, safe, educational not to mention easy tips about that topic to Mary.
