The Silence I can feel is killing me...

Hissing electric cables drag on the floor,
like poisonous snakes they slowly move towards me.
They sinuously cling to my legs,
to painfully penetrate finally in my flesh.
And in my thoughts.

Chrome and cobalt tongues
tell me of distant voices,
but their indistinct whispers are just
a COLD electric hiss.
The truths they suggest
are like those of Eve’s snake,
they seduce me making me believe

I can approach knowledge.

In a plastic and silicon forest
pervaded by tiny insects
continuously chattering
with their electronic wailings
I look at least for a soul, who could
communicate with me,
but in vain.

We built our Babel,
but at what price?
The spectre of incomprehension

has been fluttering among us for a long time.

It’s a strange paradox that
in a world ruled by media
we’re no longer able
to communicate so deep

Copper in the veins,
sparkling glass in the gaze,
the cold metallic heart
beats to the rhythm of millesimal frequencies.

Pre-packed emotions,
pressed and sealed
in small sterile boxes
one hundred and sixty characters long.

I miss so much

the ocean of emotions
that I could only see in your REAL eyes.

We built our Babel,

​but what was the price?

The spectre of incomprehension

has been fluttering among us.

Flickering and pale faces
Appear like ghosts
Behind the electric veil
Of an illusion that leads only
Towards the awful silence.

It’s so very cold…

I hear only silence,
I can hear only silence
between this messy tangle of digital bodies.

Lost like a warm drop in a cold sea
made of a multitude of people
all wearing their deformed masks.

A strange sickness caught me.
Why can’t I communicate anymore?
What’s wrong with my heart?

Have I lost my soul?
Have I lost my soul?

I cannot communicate anymore.
