Looking Up. (July 15,1999 / Barinas)
Just One Last Time Part 2- The Billiard Room
''Without your love I would die'',
I was shot at the heart with a momentum to cry.
I felt alone because the walls stared at the black letters soaked in tears,
You were not by my side filling my soul and destroying my fears.
Red fiery eyes were glowing the surrounding darkness which had previously been blue,
Arrays of colors filling my mind until I heard you say ''wake up Lu.''
The needles kept pushing through,
And someone was at my side- it was you.
The transition kept on going and rising flames appeared,
It wasn't reality but visual sound that from the needles I could hear.
It was controlling my mind and I couldn't help it,
I wanted to stop then rewind but it was so real that I couldn't face it.
I woke up the next day with brightened sunshine walls,
The note was in the corner of the room from where darkness never falls.
I sat up and wiped out the sweat running up and down my face,
I read the note once again and within a glimpse of time I finished tying my shoe lace.
Hours passed by and some guys ringed the bell,
I went inside their car because I could feel the flames slowly burn me to hell.
There were we playing at the billiard room,
When the phone spread throughout my body a sensation of doom.
The crackling sound of the billiard balls filled the room and the men were paying debt,
I answered the call and heard words that made me drop the call dead.
Tires were burning asphalt as he rushed from where he had fled,
He stood motionless and with a deep stare walked to me and said: ...
To be continued

Are you happy?
Keep your luck.
Are you lost?
Keep looking up.
