To love, or not to be
It stays in your mind.
Love stays love,
conditional or unconditional.
To be loved, or not to
It's a matter of not a matter
as dostoyevsky says:

"with love,
You can still live even without happiness"

As love is beyond everything
don'th  even try to contain it
love is even bigger, than an ego of men
let love spread, let love set
for everything inside me,
that leads to everything inside you
Yes, your heart
whereas my love is all contained
gladly and gracefully

A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more
than you love me?

The beloved replied,
I have died to myself
and I live for you.

I’ve disappeared from myself
and my attributes.
I am present only for you.

I have forgotten all my learning,
but from knowing you
I have become a scholar.

I have lost all my strength,
but from your power
I am able.

If I love myself
I love you.
If I love you
I love myself.

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

Walk with grief, tame the hatred
Soul of mannequin
told me to burst
my anger, and hurtful feeling

But I won't

Say it
Glow it on the boastful talks
Show it on a hypocrite judgment

The society is sick
and I won't contribute a disease
Let it be my grief,
but a cure to the world

a revelation, a magma of delusion
they will flood you with menace
but keep stand and still

Say it
"I demand you love"
"I blame you not, and I don't blame myself either"

You say "it's a matter of time"
but it's not the time that matter
I may buy a lot of time to wait
and you may gone forever

But I still do
and I'll forever do

If I know you
Better than today
I must be mad of myself
I am dying in jealousy

If i know you
Better than today
I want to see your shilouette
Every single day, every single scene

If i know you
Better than today
Let me tell you
You are kind of addiction
You are kind of trance of my imagination

If I know you
Better than today
I must be prepared
To be the one of your precious
To be the one of you crave the most

I may not be a perfection
I may not be a great figure like your father
But I dare to say
I will bring you the whole new world
Like the one you never met before

Bring me to the horizon of your heart
Pick me a feeling for not easily fall for love
I bring you, nor you bring me
We are indifferent in so many ways
But i know for sure you're perfect match for me

Throw me to the lake then separate my heart to the pond
Pond of your heart, jar of your love
Teach me not to blame but to be embraced by your warm
Lemme be the freeman until I know I can't go home for anywhere else
But your cage of love
The best thing for my heart to rest and prosper its feeling

Lemme be your significant paradise
Whereas my love will be still for entire life
Whereas dignity will mean nothing but guarantee
as for our love will grow and complete each other
and return to the world as a happy child
