The Choice

Close your eyes,


Follow me

I’ll show you the way

To my secret garden

Ride on that enchanting melody

That my murmuring heartbeats sing.

Trace the whispers

Of the virgin light of my eyes.

In that beautiful maze,

Allow thy self to be lost

To find

Thine destination

And destiny.

Come closer,

Let me show you my flowers:

Callas, daisies and irises.

I water them from that well yonder

I hold my two silver buckets

And fill them with memories

And with the diamond droplets

That fall off my eyes

And pour them on the thirsty buds

Some whither,

Some blossom.

Now, draw closer

Here’s our destination

Do you see this light blue, glass house?

It is my home.

Do you wish to get in?

Be ware, if you do, you will never go out

And you’ll have to leave all your luggage

And life


You’ll step into that sweet whirl

Where you’ll be eternally enchanted

By my inevitable spells.

No, do not ask me to tell you

What lies behind that door.

Some secrets are not to be disclosed!

It might be everlasting bliss,

Or perpetual misery!

Now, the choice

Is Yours!
