Hilarious parody of the John Lewis Christmas advert. Below is the original for those not familiar. 😀
We’re Alone Now
Fragile souls in the arena
bristling claws and teeth,
Bloodied by caustic tongues,
Their words dissecting,
Still unable to summon the strength for the fight,
nor the bile to counter.
A last pitiful cry…..
… We’re alone now
I decided to alter this piece. I prefer it this way, hope you do too.
Adriana Mezzadri – Marcas De Ayer (Marks Of The Past)
I grieved your absence long before I knew your name
You were the time-worn scar carved under my skin
The severed necessity I could feel but not see
Your mournful echoes were forever wounding the present
But still I slipped the guilt on my finger and wore the lie
For he was not you, yet you were always the other half of me
Tell me querido, can you feel the marks of the past?
“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
“Love is born into every human being; it calls back the halves of our original nature together; it tries to make one out of two and heal the wound of human nature.”
“Love is simply the name for the desire and pursuit of the whole.”
― Plato, The Symposium
Apollo The God Of Light – Caden
Riding on the back of bullish charisma, you touch down
Infecting those caught in your storm with confused excitement
Blind to their own dismantling, they conform, wide-eyed and awestruck
Placing heaped plates of creativity and hope at your wandering feet
These diligent little worker ants await direction, but will inevitably starve
For you are oblivious to the furore; already restless; already moving on
Did no one tell them your light here was only temporary?
