IF ONLY...


One feels like crying and weeping… 
But the tears do not honour one's eyes with their presence.
At least not this time. Not now.


I wish I could be elsewhere…
On the other side of the planet.
The planet of joy and sadness. The omnipresent duality.


If only the uncertain was a bit less dicey…
If only the beautiful was a bit closer…
If only the mind could stop wandering amidst fear…


Yet the days pass by and the minutes die.
Grab the moments by their necks.
Or else you'll disappear with them…
