The spoken words and movements vanish in time.
The images are the constant reminder of what was once part of the present.
They stay in the mind as a sharp pain that asphyxiates the guts and drowns the illusions.
Dear, save your interpretations.
You, full of prejudices that only reflect your values and omissions.
Take care of your tasks so that the naive does not have to pay for them later.
Save your interpretations because contrary to what you think will be used as nourishing.
If you would just watch ... you could feel the silence.
The same silence that breaks the smallest of illusions.
The same silence that shuts up because now only the images can scream.
The images that reflect what is hidden wanting it to be exposed.
The images that reflect what is silent because the words have been already vanished by time.
