when loneliness reigns,
over all caresses,
when there are crows,
that besiege my agony.
in this instant of pain,
where the grief lives.
Just so,
alone here,
in the dark of the world,
in the forbidden corner,
in abandonment and exile.
Just in the moment,
when I expire...

Dementia comes to life.
Resuscitating hope,
filling the gaps,
and adjusting the words.
Madness, comes to stay,
healing all discontent,
and shifting the wind.
Releasing with clarinets,
and between dance and babble,
redeeming the altars.
It arrives and prevails,
the perfect dementia,
that camouflages itself between the sane,
to rule and dominate.
