Alter Ego's


(.)

Wake me light

When you woke me up
on that secret
and delicate
morning...


(.)

I was never before
so surprised
by the lightness
i felt.


(.)

As if you
shined
some strong and bright
light
over my body
when i was
asleep
so full of peace.


(.)

When you woke me up
on that cold but
sunny day
you made me wonder
oh sweet wonder...


(.)

How could anybody
have ever
thought
that time would be
good
to this earth
to us people
people like me
yes
like me.

Despite all of this...
I can't help but noticing...



(.)

But your voice is so beautiful though.

Reality

Reality is breaking
us
apart.
But since reality
is only
in our hearts and souls,
you are the one
breaking us apart.



You can't just let me
stand all alone
with my heart so cold
and heavy.
But you
only you
just let this happen.
As if nothing
ever happened before.

Hello Mila,

How are you doing?

My return to London has been a busy one. I am loaded with work, but a part of me enjoys working on many projects and essays, because it keeps me distracted from a creeping melancholy inside me.

I have found peace, calmness and quiet from within and I am happy with this. But the quietness is also a pull drawing me away from people, wanting me to only live inside my skin and never to burst out.

I feel a need to protect myself at the moment, I think. So fragile have I become that I feel strong, but only within, only when I am in no contact with another person. Hmm, I am not sure if that is the perfect way to describe it either, though... I am not sure of this feeling yet.

But for now, I find strength in solitude. I find peace in sharing things with myself only.

Hugs to you beautiful.

Outi
