To life!
By Natalie Aboitiz. 2014

I played and drank and danced along
day into night into day

shamelessly bathed
in shallow-breath laughter

And now in the safety of the mirrors
dare I take off my masquerade…

Truth has the honour of this dance
with my rhythm-stricken heart!

My lips carefully coloured with
compassion’s sweet pastel

The tainted burn of worn out tears
I spill to hell

and wave farewell
to thousand skins of sold out fear

To life! To life! To life!
I lift this glass

filled to its rim
with the drops of distilled Love

Forever Pan may play his flute…
bittersweet song

that bears my name
and only I can hear.
