They say I have forgotten to turn out

the lights of my ambition and desire,

of the hurry, the youth and cockiness.

I add, by myself, also the ones of love,

seeking, lust, yet envy.  And finally,

I am sure never will be lost others like

the rejoicing to be alive and dreaming.

It would be good they get out of my way,

for a loadstar still warms me so fiercely,

that I mirror fire, I burn and, sometimes,

I inject sparks.
