When your heart speaks,
The soul of the poet Peregrine

Just something short .

No one has walked in my shoes like I've worn them...

A moment that goes unnoticed /
Fleeting passion that envelops the senses /
AS YOU ARE
Do not seek to make me happy
Because I am already
I don't want to make you happy
Because I'm going to fail
I only wish you next to me who is happy
Expected you to fall with the desire /
In that winter hopes spring /
You expect with the fire of passion /
That radiates your three gold dress /
With the refinement and...

I sleep quiet
But in my dreams
Something nice sweet

On my trembling lips
