No! Hush! They must not overhear. You know
Those demons-some call them fears-that some times they inherit the human form and other times you cannot see them, but you know they are there. You can feel them on your skin, inside that intangible shudder that penetrates your body like electricity. You can shut your eyes if you wish. Shut them! Shut them as tightly as you can. You can even count to ten if you wish-like we used to do when we were kids-and wait for them to disappear, or run like the wind, if you crave. Still, no matter how far you run, or how many times you blink your eyes, they will be there, right in front of you. You will be trying to escape this dream, you surmise- but you will be realizing that you are awake. And they will be there. In the form of your worst nightmare, they will be taking flesh and bones. Welcome in Neverland.
Compromise. With love unuttered compromise. Here you shall never hear I love you. For here we only speak truths. And truths should rip your heart in two. Your heart, yes, leave it here. You dont need it anymore. For what you yearned the most in your antecedent life, here you will replace it with all those things that you will never encompass. And your soul will be racing perpetually on the wrong lane on the widest boulevards anyone could ever imagine. It will be dying over and over. And every time it will be wringing louder. Louder
Until not even yourself will be able to withstand its epicedium. Welcome in Neverland.
Your nights shall be sleepless. You will be cursed to sway between life and death, between dream and reality, between light and darkness. You will be straying inside empty spaces like a shadow longing to consolidate into a body. Your days shall be short and dark. You wont belong. You will be trying your best but you shall always be the child sitting alone on the outskirt of the school yard. You will be achieving your goals one by one only to unveil that they were never yours. You will be suffocating in the life theyve arranged for you and you will be screaming at the top of your lungs. But there will be no voice. Welcome in Neverland.
Here the fairytales end disgracefully. The wolf killed the red hood and sleeping beauty never awakened
Cinderella carried on digging the ashes and ugly duckling never grew into a swan
Evil stepmother exterminated snow white and the frog never turned into a prince
For here we live happily ever after but they live even happier. Welcome in Neverland.
