The red lights
Sometimes they call me
Someone had told them my name, I don’t know who
At first they tried to get me by cute nicknames
“Hey, buddy stop there ok?”
“Hi my friend, today you will stay for a small talk? Can you please?”
“Honey you know that you didn’t need to do it”
I keep crossing them without think twice.
Them they stopped to be so kind
“You really want it didn’t you?”
“You know that you have a life in front of you”
“You are just giving up because of nothing!”
I almost hear their scream “No please!” but I ignore, always
Once a girl that should know me better said to me:
— Men, they all like to run fast.
I did not bother to say the truth, she didn’t deserve it from me
I keep it on my throat
— No, my dear don’t you see? I don’t run because I like the speed, I run because I hope that someday I will not be whole as I get in the other side.
