Nicola Beckett on BANANAS
16 hours ago
Mary was alone in the beach
staring at turquoise sea.
All in her was saying:
“I am not from here”
Her white skin,
The book in her hands
Her legs under the gold sand
like she wanted to vanish into it.
Her wish of being unnoticed
would have to wait for other day,
Teresa had put an eye in her.
Teresa came without invitation
Moving her body,
How she only k...

I am here, alone
Sitting in the middle
Of a beautiful and peaceable painting,
nothing is moving.
I am looking at everything,
And looking at nothing,
An intruder breeze whispers at me,
I was in another painting,
A vivid painting,
Something in there,
it suggested movements,
Laughs and noises
Who was capable to capture that moment?

I already had accepted my life,
My boring life,
My life without emotion,
My life without passion.
Passion had left behind,
in my younger days.
How long a person could live that way,
Looking the life pass through a window.
Like a person who cannot afford an expensive artwork
But looks it with absolute fascination,
while tells the insistent seller, “Just browsing".

Years ago, I heard about a love endless
Were the times,
When love was sprouting
Songs was inviting to fall in love
unbelievable love stories were written
The war had over
Giving passed to unexpected coming backs.
She was an adorable woman
Worthy daughter of his dedicated professor
He was a handsome man and brilliant student,
She was sweet, lovely, ...

My loved Brother
Today, in the middle of my weekly shopping
Between bananas and tomatoes
I found red plums.
The noise around me
My mind traveled 24 years ago,
To our small city,
so distant that looks like another life.
Each month we used to buy
two plums and one sweetened milk,
our monthly rewards
nobody except you, can under...

Once more time, the bar
Open its door to anyone
Discolored red walls
Announce, it had better times.
Protect who wants to be unnoticed
The possibility to forget
Invite to drink a bitter beer.
Loud Music, symphony of voices
Chatting and laughing,
Numb the minds
Suddenly nothing matters
Just the song playing.

This winter afternoon
Everything is calm
Everything is silence around me
I only listen to my thoughts
And the inevitable noise
coming from the heater.
I am sitting, staring at nothing
Deep wounds bleed again
Hard times come to me
Long sleepless nights
Sad and old songs
Therapies, books, movies and...

There was a house on my memory
It was my grandmother’s house
Special and humble Refuge
Where siblings, cousins, neighbors and friends
found cold water, warm food and hot coffee.
The house was big and unfinished
Witness of a better and unknown past
Reminder of happy times
When we used to dream
in the same time zone.
I remember smells, sounds and flavors

Today is a day like any day
Just I feel more alone than any day
My family and old friends are far away
They built a world without me
A world with different rules
Rules and codes that I cannot understand anymore
My lover is here but his mind not
I suppose he feels the same loneliness than me
Just he is incapable to think about it
Instead, I am incapable to think in anothe...

Our land is sad
Most People have run away
Only seniors have stayed
To die under the marvelous sun,
Loved things are sad
Loved things were too heavy
To bring with us
Loved things have been forgotten
And Dust has covered them
Pets are sad
They were abandoned by their owners
In a hurry to escape
Owners are not hungry anymore
but pets have continued to be hungry...
