Sci-fi world

To become a human

On a planet X, Martian girl- tourist, dressed in stardust and silk,
waits on a queue and speaks to her personal Moon.
“The hours on the waiting line are worth” – she says,
and step after step, to the emerald salesman she moves.
With the speed of the light it was supposed to be,
but alas, time froze, the orbits were on strike again.
She thought of astronauts, she prayed for iron rain,
she dreamed of umbrellas that will hide her antenna
and when she finally reached the counter,
her nikon eyes, her smile in innocent tungsten, crossing gigabites,
faced the solar robot, selling all kind of artificial goods:
“One ticket to the Earth please and advice how can I fit in a human outfit?

Walk away

Walk away

When the night leaves salty trace in the ocean,
when the silver moon requests a kiss from the stars,
don’t wait to see if I will close my eyes next to you,
listen to me for once and walk away.

When the reasons melt under the pressure of my lips,
when the streets lead to nowhere else, but me,
don’t raise your hope, don’t be blind because of love,
admit that I am right and walk away.

Walk away, before we’re both sorry
for the demons that possessed us and left us unrest.
Walk away and don’t turn back, because if I walk away first,
your shadow will remain forever trapped in the moment when we met.

Questions

Troubled

Why wasn’t I in Belfast?
And since when Cinderella
throws her shoe into a spam box?

Who left the post office closed?
And how come I feel, you jinxed
my powers when you left?

How loud the scream
of a dead sea serpent can be?
Is it spoken truth or blue dreams?

Is there a detergent for the mess?
If I ever figure out the math,
will I be back to a normal track?
