Anguish before dinner


“The princess is sad . . . from the princess slips
such sighs in her words from the strawberry lips. (…)”

Rubén Darío

Tomorrow is the year-end party at school and I can’t hide some sadness…
This is the place that sheltered all my dreams and from where I foresee my reality.
I keep so many people, stories, moments and I can’t avoid this anguish that makes me cry at the end.
