You are always reading and I want to ask you: ‘Do you feel, sometimes, only sometimes, that reality is a burden?’ ‘Do you feel the urge to just lose yourself between black-inked thoughts?’

I am very curious about what hides behind your sparkling eyes when you see a book. Do you hope to drown yourself in words,  forgetting the real thirst?

You flinch easily, you throw a hunted look behind, you smile, sometimes laugh without a reason and I can see myself in your blue eyes. I do that too, this is why I want to ask you.

Is it easy to turn your back on reality? Is it that easy to forget about the annoying, yet pleasing, sound of living? 

You sometimes do that. You fall into an oblivion where no one can find you because you found yourself. Do I want to catch you or fall with you?

You are a puzzle, and I am sure it’s irrelevant trying to figure you out. Some pieces are missing, some are borrowed, some change every day. You were never meant to be a perfect whole.

I can see your messy hair, the bags under your eyes and I want to ask you. ‘Did you waste your time overthinking or just wandering around that oblivion, searching for indulgence in someone else’s thoughts?’ 

It’s as simple as that. We’re real people, in real times. You are real, I am real, but not quite.

Song of the Day

Billie Marten – Live

I want to go places that I’ve never been
Rome, California, Paris, Berlin
I want to see things I’ve never seen
Quietly happy and live by the sea

[Chorus]

They say don’t go out
Don’t get lost in the dark
Don’t go in too deep
Don’t swim out too far
They say don’t go out
Don’t go out too fast
Cos I feel it all and I need to live a little at last

I wanna stay out all night say hello to the dawn
Creep back to bed they’ll never know I was gone
Write songs through the day be alone with my thoughts
Spend time with the ones I’ve always adored

[Chorus]

They say don’t go out
Don’t get lost in the dark
Don’t go in too deep
Don’t swim out too far
They say don’t go out
Don’t go out too fast
Cos I feel it all and I need to live a little at last

Make my own mistakes
For a [?] heart
I am not afraid
I will let down my guard

[Chorus]

They say don’t go out
Don’t get lost in the dark
Don’t go in too deep
Don’t swim out too far
They say don’t go out
Don’t go out too fast
Cos I feel it all and I need to live a little at last
