And that’s it – by Juan M.S.

And that’s it, and there’s nothing after you.

There are fireflies and the immensity of the night,

and we’re just meeting up once again.

Outside there’s the beating of a thousand revolutions,

there’s Hiroshima and the global financial breakdown,

fears, delusions, and many lives which I could live,

and the appealing world calling out to me with fair eyes.

But when I shut myself away and I think of the world,

and I dream fictitious lives where there is no more fear of delusion,

when I learn to deal with the circumstances,

your eyes emerge distinctly from the turmoil,

and you’re my world and that’s it

and there’s nothing after you.

-Juan Martin Sanchez
