The Casa

Standard

Finding home
I’m finding a home
Without odour
Without nuisance
Finding somewhere
To be my home
A few pairs of worn shoes
A whole backpack of melancholy
I hug myself
So cold, so warm
I dry my tears
Helpless then back to fearless
Finding home
Searching the world
Somewhere I’m cherished
Somewhere I’m the priority
Finding a place
To be my home
Volumes of heart-to-heart journals
An overwhelming number of snapshots
I searched the world
For years on my own
I’m my home
So I thought

The Orchid Girl

Standard

I stroll along her face with my thumb
I feel
I touch
Her eyes
So delicate
Her face
Never fades
I can no longer hear her voice
I close the door
I clear my mind
No, all I can hear is still
The drizzling rain
Her hair does not move a bit
But I fear she’d feel chilly in such wind
I hold her close
Next to my heart
I lower my head
And again try to have some sleep

The Hostess

Standard

Come inside
Welcome to my mess
Make yourself home
You know I never know best
Stroll across
Tiptoe through
Enter the core
Recover my soul
But don’t
If you can’t make it to the end
Don’t
Even
Knock

The Strange

Standard

She didn’t say a word
Snaps
Disdain
She didn’t utter a sound
Objections
Rejections
She just stood in silence
Insults
Abuse
She never said a thing
Numb
Mute

The Distorted

Standard

I moved mountains
I uprooted streams
Is this what you want?
Is this what you need?
I broke through all blockage
I grabbed the mic from stage
Is this what you wanna see?
Is this what you wanna hear?
Everything
Anything
Can you hear me
Do you see
Do you
Me
