The Secret Riddles Of My Heart
Martini afternoons and depressive songs
Arcade tickets for ten thousand points
And banana splits that melted too fast
One Spring during sunset's light
A secret so deep I can't even breathe
During party stalls and tilted floors
Where true perfection is deceiving
And misfortunes locked the doors
Jungle trees and bumblebees
Too many books read.
Dreaming summer came
Then, chiseled lips of strawberry ice-creams
& flavors of the week for every two Tuesdays.
Football fields and scampered feet
Falling at the seams.
White canvas in desert halls
Poor attempts of photographs and lures
Pearl-ish teeth for metaphors too overused
Flawless entertainment for televised series
Black leather couches
Movie afternoons watching
Films that never made it to the theater
For runners in track
Sun covered in clouds and an afterglow shield
Beaches of colors so bright
Long distance affairs.
New friendships gained
Old ones stained
Meatloaf on Sundays
Restaurants of high-prices on Fridays
& Cinema hours during High School nights
Buying special guest's cards
those ones that taught me
happiness can be free
Life is just a series of moments of indescribable glee.
Carpeting floors dressed in marble corridors
for elegant appearances with odors so strange
Starlight parades. (I'm) Beginning to age.
Midnight sonatas during fireworks seating in wet grasses during one October's night.
So(ngs)co Amaretto Limes re-playing in my mind
Memories of second semester
& mud covered in water
Of showers in the mornings
& 70 songs during English class.
Sing-alongs for seventy times (7)
& off-tunes steps breaking the glasses.
Four ones are still standing
Apart for one another they drift
To different shores searching for something neither can give.
(& still) the tattering words
Daunting the present
Long term smiles
Scribbled in paper using similes
With crocodile tears
For loving my best friend at rears
Of dreams that never came true
& realities reminding the cue
And the story of a year so perfect
With sustained smiling eyes
& a heart full of happiness's praise-
I am due to pay my debts
Of exceeding prices
As insomniac nights arises.
& I won't regret even though I am aware
That it comes to closure, has to end
A secret only immortality can prevail
I will (never) forget not to any avail.
