Far away places

by

Claire Martinez

In these far away places
The words lose their power
And a look, deep and dark
Touch your vulnerable heart.

In these empty places
Smiles are all that matter
The friendlines, intense and sincere
Keeps your soul serene and clear.

There is no more manipulation
Just a reunion of different cultures
Where the common language
Is the one from the heart.

Experience the tranquility of the communion
Between beings who love to share their ideals
In a tough and barren land
Cherished by your newly opened eyes.


Be

by

Claire Martinez

You have to reach for your creativity
And lose yourself in your abstract world
To give you peace and serenity
For a little while in the silent night.

You are loved beyond understanding
So be brave to embrace the messy beautiful life
And you'll find happiness above you, standing...
So grasp your new cheriched emotion.

Don't give up your search
Because you're on the right track.
There will always be challenges to face
Don't get scared, don't look back.

Keep your beautiful emotions
Always with you, afloat in the moonlight
Keep the sunshine in your heart
To protect it...always...in the darkest night.

Ode to my friend

by

Claire Martinez

This is the world...
Are you scared?
To reveal yourself
And the dark shadows...

If it gets too much
If I cannot immerge again
Will you be there
Searching for me?

Will you be the hand, grabbing me?
The soul, understanding ne?
The smile, reassuring me?
YOU are the friend everyone is looking for.

This is the world...
Jump in it
And drown
Leaving the shadows behind.

YOU have found me
I've crossed your way
Perfect encouter
My beautiful friend.

To V.B

by

Claire Martinez

I'm running fast, chasing the glaring sun
And I'll reach out for quieter days
Where you will be there, smiling with me
Where you will be running next to me.

I'm trying to fly but something is missing...
And I'm looking around, slightly lost...
You're my other wing, let's try to fly
You're my ray of sun, let's get high...

Come on and grip the thread of life
And dance till you drop
Dance till we reach the other side
I'll be there, always, dancing in the sky!

You soothe the pain, you lit the path
You're the most beautiful being on earth
And I hold you in my heart always.
Look above, I am the star that protects you, my friend, always...

Bolivia

by

Claire Martinez

Everywhere you look
You can see the beauty of the earth
The amazing colour of the world
That we often disregard.

We try to retain the wonderful light,
The torturing landscape
Escaping in front of us.
We remain transfixed in the moment.

No words can match the magicality
Of the gigantic barren mountains
Circling us in silence
In the awesom emptiness.

Not a soul to be seen
In the vast empty spaces
Those wondrous views
Captured in our mind.

For you

by

Claire Martinez

Reality hurts sometimes
And I project my dreams against the walls
Mixing the real and the fantastic
And I submerge myself into that white cloud.

I love the feeling
The lightness of being
HIGH, above the ground
In exhilaration, alive.

Give me the buzz
To chase the light
Just a bit of fun
To play, to smile.

Iíll always be next to you
Like an aura to protect you
To enjoy the rhythm, the beats
The kaleidoscopic lights of the night.

You can feel my presence
You can see my smile
In the fictional moment
Lost in music_

Being above the ground
Completes and makes life
More pleasant, more livable_

Reality comes back too quickly
But remember,
In my reality or in my white world
YOU MATTER
So let your own light shine_
And Iíll always be right next to you.

Crash

by

Claire Martinez

Crash... and we touch
And the feeling is warm
Crash..and we hurt,
The tears blurring the eyes.

We fear for the end
And we reach out a hand
In despair, in fear to die
So soon, when we crash and lie.

We call out for those we trust
But emptiness seems to burst
And we cone close to our dear friends
The smiley faces of the day never end.

Crash...and we touch
And the feeling is warm
Crash...and we hurt
The tears blurring the eyes.

And we cannot remember the sunlight
Because of the shadows in sight
But there are the feelings,
The beautiful beings.

Jump in the air and smile
In the icy blue sky
To the freedom of being alive
In a beautiful world, high...
AND
CRASH...when we touch...

Friend

by

Claire Martinez

You're a sunshine in my life
A beautiful thought to my mind
Where things seem tough
You lift my soul
With your perfect smile
With your sheer crazyness
And your forever friendliness

I'm flying, floating
To survive, to cope
In the fast life...
Some people leave or run away
But you're still here...with me
Despite my floatiness.

By my side

by

Claire Martinez

When I woke up today
You were already gone
I just wanted to see you
And hold you

But today, it's a different day
I feel my heart sinking
In the morning light
With no-one by my side.

I don't even look out for you
I stare into the void
The light is peaceful
In the quiet room.

The sun is high and warm
And the noises of life start again.
I wake up to reality and
I'm falling down quickly.

This was just a dream
Helping my soul
Driving me insane
Keeping me sane.

The night

by

Claire Martinez

There is the night
With all its underworld
Its unknown paths
And its wild corners.

The people scream and sing
And lose control
Who's talking?
The night is queen.

There is the night
With the mad addicts
The self-absorbed
And the irrationals.

Grasp the feelings

by

Claire Martinez

Can you grasp the feelings
The emotional streams
That run down my veins
In an untamed flow.

Please do chase it
Do take it
It's wild and strong
And know no rules.

Corner it into your arms
Stop it with your words
To help me breathe
To stop me feeling for a while.

Hold me

by

Claire Martinez

And we laugh and laugh in the middle of the night
And you hold me tight
And we smile and smile with complicity
And it feels safe in that fragile serenity.

And it's like I'm 17 again when you're around,
Shaking inside, smiling inside like a child in a playground
Who cannot stop running
Feeling dizzy in the wind.

I want to be close to you
Close to you
Lose myself into your eyes
Unaware of the lies
Hold me, hold me.

And when you go, there's a sharp pain inside
An empty space in my heart that I try to hide
And when you're here, a warm emotion invades me
A buzz lift my soul when you look at me.

I want to keep the complicity and tenderness
That keeps me alive in the darkness
Keep your presence, reassuring and calming
When I lose grip in the wind.

I want to be close to you
Close to you
Lose myself into your eyes
Unaware of the lies
Hold me, hold me.

You've gone...I should have been more aware of the lies!

Angel (V.B.)

by

Claire Martinez

Hold on to your ideals
Do not change your craziness
Run across the hills
And fly towards your happiness.

Believe in yourself, beautiful
You're admirable
Follow life (ups and downs) but live to the full
You're adorable

Run towards the wall
It may break and fall
And you'll land on a cloud
To carry you high, so shout loud!

Because you're a fighter
An amazing soul, an angel on earth
Tomorrow is always brighter
When a person like you touch the earth.

not that ordinary

by

Claire Martinez

I don't want to run away anymore
So please listen to my heart
And take it, love it, more and more
To resuscitate my dream, my smile, the spark.

I've been on the wrong track so often
Pursuing an empty space, an addiction, a feeling
But I want to find you and be with you in the sun
I want to be held by you in the sunset, feeling safe, breathing.

But I'm not that ordinary soul
Forgive and accept my floaty world
And in your arms I will fall
Melting to the sweetness of your words
Hold me tight, don't let me escape your embrace.
Don't let me fall down the faulty trap of my restlessness.

I don't want to run away from happiness
So please take me with you for a while
To this other place
Where beautiful souls fly high.

I've been following an invisible thread
Thinking it was easier to feel and be
But I only need you and your love to keep me sane
In this messy reality, I still trip against the stained walls of irrationality.

But I'm not that ordinary soul
Forgive and accept my floaty world
And in your arms I will fall
Melting to the sweetness of your words
Hold me tight, don't let me escape your embrace.
Don't let me fall down the faulty trap of my restlessness.

I don't want to run away from you
Chase me and look after me and my fragile soul
Like a precious stone that's there to protect you.
I'm still on the edge of the cliff following my illusion, finding the black hole.

I've been on the white path of the other world
Feeling elsewhere, above, alive
But things eventually get blurred
When reality hits your smile.

Special time

by

Claire Martinez

This was a special time
When we used to walk along
The sparkling beach
In no hurry

But you are not there
And your presenceLike a ghost wandering
Alone, in no hurry

Got to break the ice
Smash the sea
Get drowned
To live and be

This was our special time
Where time was slow
In the summer nights
In the stifling heat

I look around sometimes
To reach you, to see you
And the emptiness is there
Like a faint aura

Got to break the ice
Smash the sea
Get drowned
To live and be

This was a time to be
Wild and proud
And in your arms
It felt safe

I stroll along the beach
Looking at you
Lookin empty soul

I'll break the ice
And smash the sea
I'll drowned
And will live and be

There'll be another special time
With laughter and smiles
Under the sun
I'll be and will stay

When I look around
I see my caring friends
And in my heart they will stay
To keep me warm

I'll break the ice
And smash the sea
I'll drowned
And will live and be

Untitled

by

Claire Martinez

Suddenly...I'm speechless
Something happened to me
A strong feeling leave me restless
And I'm alive when you're close to me
e whispering
The meaning of love and dream
The illusion of us flying in the wind
Towards the white light of peace and dream

Will you stay with me?
Will you ever leave me?
When it gets dark
When I cry in the night

Suddenly...I'm running
Along the busy streets of unknown cities
I don't want to stop flying
I've got to reach the eternity in the morning breeze

Join me in my race
Run with me for a while, for ever
Share my emotions oozing in my embrace
And we'll become united fou stay with me?
Will you ever leave me?
When it gets dark
When I cry in the night

Reach for me
Touch me
Kiss me
In my ETERNITY...

The angel fall

by

Claire Martinez

Look at the angel fall
Hear the sigh of a whisper
Hitting the wall
Hurting your heart with a thunder

I've been killed inside
With no guilt, no shame
And years of tears still to hide,
Behind the smile, it's all the same

Come and play in the sky
Just a bit of fun
To get HIGH
When darkness comes around

Do not come near my fragile soul
With your harshness
You will never kill my spirit with your sword
The bruises have gone, the pain stagnates in the wisdom of timelessness

The lure of the mind

by

Claire Martinez

There's a reason behind those actions
An untamable force threw the lost being against the walls
Into a tortured soul full of rage and oozing emotions
Why do you ignore the destroying tempest ravaging this loving soul?

There's a wild passion riveting the fragile spirit
And when the heart shivers, the reason collapses into sharp painful tears
And the spark keeps floating above the sweet candle just lit
Like a fidgeting soul full of warmth trying to fight against the fear

It's the lure of the mind
Another hurtful memory
And in the safest arms I rest
And in your heart I'll remain

The light vanishes in the dark path of the vicious rage
And the bruises take over the emotional pain inside
Why do you turn your back to the bleeding tears staining the white page?
I crawl in a confined space where no-where to hide.

But all I need is you, your love and your lusty looks thrown at me
The reassurance of your touch on my body, on my soul lost in the wind
And I will overcome the unfathomable quandery
Entangled in my self to be with you, serene.

It's the lure of the mind
Another hurtful blow behind
And in the safest arms I rest
And in your heart I'll remain.
