I was never enough
They looked past me
and allowed their eyes
I was too independent for him.
I was too far away from him.
I was too stubborn for him.
I wasn’t calm enough for him.
I wasn’t making enough income for him.
I wasn’t a good enough writer for him.
Until you, my love,
I am enough,
not just for now,
but into the eternity.
Following the same recipe
The apricot cakes taste chalk and cheese
The same path for all to live
The fulfilled life is always with love
The same goes with baking
memories are like sepia footprints trailing off
on those time polished cobblestone streets
lovers met by the bronze tiered fountain
leaning into the pool of silver moonlight
as the water cascading down
like a mermaid dress
she managed to shy away from his loving gaze
but the orange moon hung on the inky sky
turned her burning cheeks into a charred smile
left her pearly teeth echo the downpour of moonbeams
how many raw passion first kisses
how many lovers’ embrace
how many heartbreak stories
witnessed by the moonlit streets
I didn’t dream because dreams were far fetched.
You came to fulfill my dreams.
So, I didn’t feel awkward of being ordinary.
You made my ordinary life wonderful.
I didn’t wait because waiting was for fools.
You came to me making yourself a fool.
So, I didn’t feel guilty of being impatient.
You made me see that I was worth waiting for.
Non ho sognato perché i sogni erano inverosimili.
Sei venuto per realizzare i miei sogni.
Quindi, non mi sentivo a disagio per essere normale.
Hai reso meravigliosa la mia vita ordinaria.
Non ho aspettato perché l’attesa era per gli sciocchi.
Sei venuto da me facendoti ridere.
Quindi, non mi sentivo in colpa per essere impaziente.
Mi hai fatto capire che valeva la pena aspettare.
I know there is a wound left
close but not open
I know it is there
but it does not hurt
It has to be very very quiet
when I notice the shadow of it
I only know it is there
becuase you have been nursing it
there is so much care you give
it is oozing out love
from that wound
I am wrapped in a little turquoise bubble
with lung full of love filled aqua air
breathing out golden bright sunflowers
lighting up the October azure sky
late Summer surrenders to tangerine charm
so does our love to Autumn’s charisma
A Collaboration of Cassa and Lucy
dark clouds gather overhead as the rolling thunder
sets my soul on fire
lightning brings about the spark
I longed to ignite our flame
overflowing in the depths of my tempestuous heart
my inner sense of desire
yearning for the calm waves to wash over me
ever so gentle rhythmic in unison with my heart beat
the lull of your breathing brings about
a peaceful and serene plateau of joyous abandonment
your voice, so quiet and sublime
echos in the distance far from silent ears
nothing measures up to the peace you grant me
the gentle trickle spring you let in
in painstaking patience
nourishes my weathered heart
unbeknown to you
the frozen particles in my being thaw in your presence
you are the heart and soul of my universe
your spring overflows my cup
There are riches within me
that may not surface in words
Words I utter often in solo, acoustic or quietened sound
Sound is such a gravitating instrument
An instrument appeal to particular ears
There are many dialogues in my head
I swim in my own head and thoughts
never feel the need to voice them
They are neither crazy nor important natured
I enjoy organising them internally in the space between my ears
When I do get to say them aloud
they are simple and in plain languages
that I am sure the audience cannot mistake their meanings or weight
If I use the minimum amount of words in the most simple form
then there is little misunderstanding
and little chance to be twisted
If I say
‘I love you’
and it means simply that in the most weighty way
Love manifests in a force of connection
The burning of passion gives off a campfire comfort
It is peace I adore in the deep forest of life
The evergreen thrives in a dim rustic old farmhouse
where we build our light filled home with callus hands
I used to take long drives to see the ocean
and let the waves saturate me with calmness
I used to hike to the top of the lookout
and let the sunrise bathe me in hope
I used to cuddle a soft pillow to sleep
and let the dreams tell me the future
I fell into your arms
where all my desires were sated
where my heart was nestled in
my happy place
