Tempting illusions




After the sun of the afternoon
and before the sunset
we would speed up
in our steps,
towards the night
of our loneliness.


Leaving the sign of our sadness
that the daytime marked
on our forehead
a sign of our youth,
which was short.

The youth was not permanent
but the grief remains
in our souls.

However my illusions
made the world
much more tempting
to survive every-day!

Quicker to the night
where the joy of the dances
where the effects of the day
would not be seen.

  1. there is much more comfort once the sun is gone and the shadows can caress and conceal that which we walk through...

  2. This is a poem about survival, and there is deep meaning within each verse I think. I particularly liked: "Leave the sign of our sadness that the daytime marked on our forehead." There's something about the forehead that makes this absolutely tangent.

  3. "After the sun of the afternoon
    and before the sunset
    we would speed up
    in our steps,
    towards the night
    of our loneliness."
