Reality has eradicated my blindness,
My eyes can see because my heart has given up.
I truthfully taste the colours around me,
I’m blind no more.
Reality has defeated my dreaming,
I do not dream because imagining is not an option.
I see shattered hopes at noon and dawn,
I dream no more.
Reality has made a mockery of my tears,
My tongue speaks words of disappointment.
Salty bitter words come down from my breath,
I’m joyful no more.
Reality has made me into someone I don’t recognize,
Like Lorca would say “I’m not myself anymore…”
I wake up, I’m here and there, but really nowhere,
I’m me no more.
