To never sleep again ...

There is this book called 'To never sleep again'

It haunted me - for years I must say. An academic whose sole life purpose is to prove that comets can obtain alien micro life forms. Why did it haunt me? As the main character turns his back desillusioned and decided to give up, the narrator describes beautifully how a cometh with little alien life forms falls behind his back while walking away ...

When you give something a chance and maintain your belief in it, miracles can occur ...

When you disregard the chance out of security reasons or by giving up, the cometh will fall too but it will never see the light of day in your life ...

Luckily ... I persisted :). I can sleep again now.

My Sisyphus

Undestined feelings of belonging
Undestined sentiment of death
if this is my utopia
I will gladly rest

til my day of glory comes
where I know
that I have loved, hated and cried
suffocated into happiness
and risen into the pain

My day of glory comes
cometh it will
and I'm glad

Life is not my punishment
immortality is
letting go is part of life
so I'm letting go of myself instead.

Nice work Pablo! ;)

I used to believe in the good old days

I used to believe in the good old days

The days of sorrowful eyes
where rain were angels' tears
and nobody wondered why ...

except me.

I used to ...

Now I believe in the days to come
the days of possible joy
where butterflies surround the sun
looking for that rainbow
for the years to come.

Thank you to those who shared and encouraged my voyage til where I am now.

Casey, I'm looking forward to reading your book! (Joseph you're next!)

this strangled life

Let's strangle opportunity
into the dark corners of the mind
where all repressed memories roam
where joy is still a shadow
waiting to be born.

Let me roam the darkness
Not for ever, just for now
So my mind can feel at ease again
In this regulated and blissful life.
