ParadiseHis skin, soft, seemed velvety by the dim light of the morning coming shy through the curtains. As if he was a baby, he slept placidly in fetal position. With the fingertips and delicately I caressed his lips; my fondling seemed not to interrupt his deep sleeping.
Then I slid my fingers to his neck until I reached his rounded shoulders. Sometimes I had touched slightly his weak eyelids, but now I didn't pretend to wake him up.
Hours ago he'd been angry with me, but now the tranquility of his dream emanated from him, filling the room. The peace and the calm, together with the aroma of the roses and lillies of the vase, made of the room an idyllic place. The Paradise of Adam and Eve, the Olympus of the gods. My paradise.

Reasons to Be Yourself
If I have to go on
A long rant about how awesome
Anyone is, they're awesome.
If I don't have to.
There are a lot of reasons
To be Yourself.
And I mean every one of them.
Even if you don't believe me.
But I mean it.
And if you really need me
To tell you why I will.
One because you are
Someone who's one in a million
And there is no one else like you.
No one who can exactly act like you.
Because you have your own quirks
And special little things that make you you.
Two because you are
This person who cannot be replaced
And have done something
That has completely changed
Someone else's life.
Three because you are
You are brilliant, even if you don't think so.
You are unique, even it you don't know it.
You are loved by someone out there,
Even if they don't show it.
Remember these reasons.
Out there, someone cares for you.
Anywhere really, just don't change yourself.
Be yourself, as hard as it is
And love who you are.
You might be
Humble, Sweet, Shy,
