La mia risposta (My answer)

Isolated I existed
in a cage of glass
I considered
sailing seas
of freedom
wishing to
explore life
to embark
upon a search
for my destiny
when you came
a clear answer on
the winds of change
a mysterious phantom
picked from my dreams
the intangible fantasy
from a mythical mind
seeping slow, steady
through tiny cracks
in my thin veneer
stealthily infusing
my essence
with renewed
excited joys
the joys of you
intoxicating me
leaving me dizzy
drunk, spinning
with the spirit
an addictive
spirit of you

You were my answer

we were nothing but
starstruck strangers
from far-flung planets
- Venus and Mars
colliding, connecting
meeting, molding
as if pre-ordained
by a universal god
in a distant galaxy
inextricably linked
intricately entwined
completely surrounded
by nothing but us, our
infinite space
endless time
dancing in circles
under the sheer
veil of moonlight
again and again
our bare feet
forever imprinted
in the shimmering
dust of eternal love

You were enough for me

happily, willingly I
surrendered entirely
quenching this raging
longing craving thirst
readily drinking in the
mere illusion of reality
while soothing tunes
sang soft lullabies to
my restless heart
I fed my wandering
dreamer’s soul on
frivolous fiction
foolishly feasting
on many fairytales
mere fantasies of
forever-after alive
with the fallacy of
an indestructible
fabled future
nothing but
set against
that of vast
bright blue
shifting skies

I believed, relied on you

I am still reaching for your warmth
I am still searching for our world
a deeper understanding of us
I am still yielding in desire
I am still playing into
the devil’s hands
leaning closer
to your touch
kiss away the
cooled tears
only to find
it mirrored
in solitude

Why did you leave me ?

Inspired by : La Mia Risposta – Laura Pausini

(Translated from the original Italian lyrics)
And I never believed in destiny
Until you changed it for me
My ship has always sailed free
My soul, alone
Days ended without logic
Every night, one more question
I felt trapped in a plastic box
Dancing in balance until I became
Too fragile
And how many times have I asked myself
Is there still love for me?

Now I know
That the answer is you
I live, because of you
Now I know there is an answer for me
It is you I love
With my wondering heart
Every fire turns to ash
Time will never come back
I barricaded myself in solitude
I prayed for you to come
Imagining a life with you
The days a little simpler, easier
And how many times did I ask the mirror
Is this love real?
Now I know that my answer is you
I live for you
I will never be the same
You are more, you are stronger than me
I know you are enough for me
I have no doubts
Like a circle without end
Like a dawn that always returns
You know it is our time, your time, my time
And everything makes sense
I’ll never have doubts again
Because I know, my answer is you
You are like me
Now I know, there is no answer, other than you
I live for you
I live for you
