Real life

rubens

Peter Paul Rubens – Daniel in the lion’s den

when you see a loved one
slipping herself into madness
with the consent
from her loved ones–

when you see her losing it
and can’t hold her into place
or yourself in somewhere else
than sadness–

when the string is so thin
it vanishes in the air–
when the only light
comes from our hearts–

when life makes no sense
just love can hold
us tight–

and the only pray i say
goes like this:
you can loose your mind
but never your truth

i’ll be here holding you
if you go and if you stay
our hearts are together
wherever you may be–
