Losing Myself

Losing myself in the labyrinth of thoughts and emotions
I disown the concept of time
I ignore the days and the nights
And I enter a secret world
An unrevealed and undisclosed chimaera
A dwelling that is perceptible only to the soul
Where everything is ethereal and pure
There are no signs of corruption nor consumption
However, nothing is steady
Somehow this peaceful alcove loses its quiescence
And a turmoil intrudes abruptly
Therein is no perfection and no idleness
The calmness is gone as soon as a new passion is born
An inert hideout becomes an ocean storm
It is not anymore a haven
As soon as pains and fears increase rapidly
I get lost in the middle of a violent blast
I feel helpless and frail
Like a small petal floating in the wind
I’m defeated defencelessly.
