Empath In flames

(29.08.1985 / Australia)

[Fallen Angel]


Why,
Am I prisoner?

Why,
am I trapped in this world?

(I need to the key before I loose myself.)

I don’t wanna feel love.
I don’t wanna feel pain.
But the things you put me through
intoxicates my veins.

I saw you with that other guy,
I clench my fist with rage.
How can you do this to me?
Just because of my age.

Now I’m at the edge of a cliff,
with fire in my eyes.
Look at what you’ve done to me
now I believe I can fly…

I’m flying…
like a angel in the sky.

This feeling won’t last long
I don’t have any wings.

I’m falling….
The angels turned to stone.

Even when I’m facing death
you are there….
Witnessing my last breath.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
