I fell in love
with the unattainable fortress,
fires inside
that I could only spy
from afar.

I gave my heart
in exchange for NOTHINGness.

I kept forever the secret,
and you
kept it

And when I tried to pull back,
from the brink of you,
Sargasso sea,
harshness and marble,
you finally gave up a soft centred chocolate smile.

But, then,

I’ve lost my taste
for assailing castle walls.
Now I desire
golden wings
and, instead of sadness,
a soul made of glass.

Far from your distant sun,
I swore to myself
not to love you
not so hard. It hurt.

«Once upon a time» -I will confide-
«I lost my heart to an unattainable fortress».

And got it back.
Only just. Just the once.
