When you lose everything and everyone,

it’s hard to stay on the tracks

until you notice you were pretending

and didn’t have anything to begin with.


When you lose everything and everyone,

your dreams become seams

into the “other-world”

where your past loves thrive

and remind you

that there is nothing.


When you lose everything and everyone,

you question what is love

and realize it is everywhere

but where is happiness?


When you lose everything and everyone,

your ghosts find you

in your dreams

where you flirt with them

and pretend

they still exist.


When you lose everything and everyone,

your memories become a safe haven,

or really a hell, a guilty pleasure

for dancing inside your head.


When you lose everything and everyone,

your head-dances become real dances

to lure anew

those you can love again.
