musings on life and dreams and everything in between

You try to understand the plot and the characters involved, you like some parts better than others, and just when it seems like you got your happy ending, you find yourself at a time of crisis. The thing is that you have to keep on reading until there are no pages left. Don’t get caught up with¬†characters who disappear without warning or chapters that end sooner than you wanted them to.

I want to travel the world, see as many countries as possible, go to Central America, to Cuba, faraway.

But that doesn’t help.

There is a window

That doesn’t close.

Always coming back to haunt me

No matter what I do.

The air is too cold for comfort

And my hands start to shiver.

Please, don’t come in here no more.
