  • Living close to the window.
    Dreaming of escaping from those who look from behind a glass.
    People observing and laughing
    who only care about taking a photo.
    A photo of their kindness
    of their beauty of their coolness.
    "And did I show you what I've seen?
    A wild animal! In a zoo!"

    Sometimes someone feels sorry for the animals
    but can do nothing to free them.
    Alone in a prison large enough to not seem so
    closely surrounded by distant others
    who even when want to help,
    they can not. they do not make it.
    because the distance is too far. too far away.

    And everyone ends up
    leaving on his own way.
    This is solitude.
