A Thousand Kisses Deep

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat.
You'd have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet.
My mirror twin, my next of kin,
I'd know you in my sleep.
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep?
I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat.
I'm just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet,
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second-hand physique -
With all he is, and all he was
A thousand kisses deep.
But, you don't need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep.

Heart with no companion

De curând, am dat peste o vorbă, șoptită de Mihai, de parca mi-ar fi citit gândul. Faptul că această vorbă nu e a lui, nu are nici o importanță. "Unei inimi neîmpăcate, nimic nu ii este suficient". Și ce mare dreptate avea cel ce a spus-o. Oare...și el trăia același lucru? Probabil, nimic nou sub soare.
Și totuși...ce faci atunci când ai inima împăcată? Este oare suficient? Aceasta împăcare își are prețul ei din păcate.

"I greet you from the other side
Of sorrow and despair
With a love so vast and shattered
It will reach you everywhere "
Și ca și cum lucrurile nu ar fi fost destul de complicate, a apărut de nicăieri și s-a instalat în inima mea.
"For the heart with no companion
For the soul without a king
For the prima ballerina
Who cannot dance to anything "

"One by one, the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few

And those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weep begin
And "Welcome, welcome" cries a voice
<<Let all my guests come in.>> "
