So here I am

I´m still waiting

So here I am

I´m still breathing

So here I am

I´m still holding

the key you lost some years ago

Where are you?

I have been looking for you for so long..

Are you even here?

Or are these words just a lie in my head?

Sometimes I wonder

You know

Why do I still bother to try?

Why do I care so much?

Should have let it go.

Long time ago.

I guess there´s no space for new

when you clutch to the old

I witness my life

just passing by

without a second look

It´s so weird to be

holding out hope still

like I´m thirteen years old

But prince charming

is nowhere to be found

No love

Neither glorious

No ordinary


Just leaves falling down

one by one

for each year of emptiness

you left

So here I am

Unpextected crossroad

in front of me

Do I give up?

Do I hold on?

That remains to be seen.

Or not..

There is a story told on how to catch put a small desirable nut into a tied container with a hole just big enough to admit an open hand, but once closed upon the nut the fist cannot be withdrawn. If the monkey would surrender the nut he could simply walk away..but he won't...
he imprisons himself...
