– And what do you wish for your birthday?

– Time. That is all I need, dad.
Time to find myself into the mess I have become today.

Thank you life for a new year!



Am tot pășit atent pe străzi întrebându-mă
Ce ar fi dacă?
Ce ar fi dacă la una din cotituri am să regăsesc amintirea adolescenței
Și mă va privi cu regret
Că am fost
Ori că sunt exact acolo, exact atunci?
Ce ar fi dacă trecutul ar redeveni prezent?

Un felinar stins
O stradă plină în apus de duminică
Două mâini strânse una în cealaltă
Un chip atât de cunoscut
Și un suflet atât de străin

O fracțiune de secundă-n care
Uitasem să respir.
Orașul care era odată al meu
Dintr-odată devenise al altuia…

Doi oameni care împărțiseră o bancă, un sărut
Au uitat să-și mai spună “Bună”.

The sunset of a dream

20170117_181732.jpgOne silent night in my small room on Calle de los Artilleros number 6
The one after so many without sleep, without the common smell of incense
The last one…

I perfectly remember it
And I can go there, at my table, in that sunny morning, whenever I feel I need it
I can remember almost every step
The bitter coffee
The kiss on the forehead and the goodbye
The little fragrance of silence
And then the time
5 o’clock
The line 9, the tears, the fears
The bus driver saying no and moving on
Cold tears falling in abundance
And many people staring at me
A little child dying from the inside….

A gray mind

“A drunk mind speaks a sober heart”
Jean-Jaques Rousseau

I have never knew how to appreciate the classic divine liquor
But today I found it amazingly sweet and releasing

A little wine reminded me what I’ve been trying to ignore
I cannot be nor I can feel what is not rooted in my soul
Having fun and  enjoying one’s company have got a different meaning
Cozy atmosphere, soft music, warm conversation

Too many people, loud minds, strong voices,
Three days of chaos I cannot endure
Not when I have to be sincere…
A distinct kind of loneliness

When did I grow so old?
