I've lost that part of me
that made living seem as easy as to breathe
we are robotic ants with faulty brains
breathing in and breathing out
it's an automatic function of our Operating System
windows of the dual helix
But living seems to be constantly out of grasp
partly because we don't let live and don't get love
or cause we're way too busy imitating the grey monkeys
and building walls with cracks barely sufficient.
I'll lend you my remote control if you can bring the pop-corn
perhaps we'll even get to choose a film that ain't a blockbuster
I used to be my couch's only master
but you will even get an extra pillow if you come.
This is an invitation paved with good intentions,
though always lurks the risk we'll both get scared as hell;
of a bad outcome, loss of face, or evil spells
and kill this infant spark before its birth.
If that will be the case, oh, glorious days ahead!
Either entranced in perfect high-tech awe of boredom,
idly caressing our mental genitals to silent spasms,
or fierce in apathy we boldly ride each night as lonely digits
butchering through temporary friends of skin and plastic;
tearing the superficial wrapping - walking party gifts -
fully recyclable, environmental hostile and unique.
The sun will carry on to rise each day regardless
of all the pills you'll chunk to cure the vain, the pain
the need to find more human traits to slain
No matter how much work or tasks, how many adult serious faces
you'll use to threaten your hangover with,
deep down we sadly know the game is over
when we are left with just the mirror's face to sleep with
secretly wishing we had still
a bedtime and a teddy and a dream.

It has been some time now since I last visited this "blog". I was quite surprised to see that there had been about 460 page views, although I haven't really paid any attention to "sharing" its contents and I have quite neglected writing any new posts. Not to mention the fact, that it contains personal delirious rambling in poetic form - which, I imagine, can't make it very popular...
Of course, I'm not as arrogant and air headed as to believe that all these people actually read my blog. I suppose, the vast majority of visitors stumbled into my blog quite accidentally, while "googling" for something else.
But, to the few that perhaps became interested in it, I would like to apologize for the lack of content and further posting, and to seize the opportunity to ramble some more - about the reasons of my absence this time.
You see, I suppose this blog started out as a strange combination of an imaginary friend, a diary and a message in a bottle thrown in the arms of the sea. Although it was "out there", it wasn't really expected to be found. It was also, a sort of "truth or dare" game with my self - do I dare to expose my truth, naked and flawed, to whoever might see it?
This form of writing, my rambling poems and amateur mute songs, begun for me as a dim firework (I don't know if there is such a thing as a dim firework, but it's the only way to describe it) during the - oh, so damned and fragile for everyone - adolescence. It lasted until my early after school years, when it was brutally pushed away by my "logical self" and gloriously neglected for the sake of studies, friends, lovers and wild partying.
It came back, subtly and discreetly, but with a vengeance, after a quite painful period of my life, to remind me how to awkwardly express my feelings again. How to distill the emotions from within and how to turn them from sheer blood and venom, to something more positive for me.
I still have more material than what I've posted here in my hard disk. But right now, I can't post anything. And I haven't been able to write something new for some time now.
It's weird. Ever since I remember my self, I have been feeling as my feet are roots, going deep in the ground, connecting me with reality and life around me, while my "upper self" is a cloud, travelling dreams of the day and an imaginary cosmos. I had always been "living" my emotions vividly in my soul.
But now, I don't feel anything.
I can only sense the walls of harsh reality closing down on me. Technically, I know there is a light in the end of the tunnel, but I can't actually feel the hope. Neither any desperation. I'm neither happy, nor sad. Just deeply dissatisfied with my life, a flat liner with a beating heart, kind of a paradox.
I can only see the walls, and they are bare. And so tall.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to complain for adversities, when life gives you lemons, you just have to make lemonade, and try to make it damn good, too. I just wish to find a way to earn a lemon and to be able to taste its sourness to the full.
To be able to honestly laugh out loud or bleed well- anything but sleeping awake in this capsule.
So, I currently cannot write or create anything. Big deal, I know, who cares, the world is seriously ill right now and I'm just whining...
But I'm just curious to know... are there any other people feeling like that? Feeling the "actual reality" around us as a suffocating thing, numbing our true senses? Restricting us to routines, mechanical reactions and plain survival? Often, nowadays, even survival is difficult...
Or am I the only one thinking like that? (In which case, a good psychiatrist is in order).

Over and out, Houston, we've got a problem, but I shall bug you no more... just baby steps for now.
