We are but older children, dear…

We are but older children, dear,

Who fret to find our bedtime near.

………………………………………………………..

And though the shadow of a sigh

May tremble through the story

For happy summer days’ gone by,

And vanish’d summer glory-

It shall not touch with breath of bale

The pleasance  of our fairy – tale

Babe.. you are so vain!

Earrings from faux leather and golden plated elements, handcrafted by Latrakia

 

Babe… you are so vain!

All your poses in attitude you take

Such an illusion, either intentionally or accidentally made!

In all of them, sorry I have to tell you…

It is like you are in pain!

Babe… you are so vain!

Wearing your finery, like a peacock in a catwalk

Building a mystery, pretentiously made!

Babe… you are so vain!

I spit in your face, your highness of emptiness!

Oh! Babe why you are so vain?

The spoken walls…

Latrakia the spoken walls

From a strolling around Mavrommateon, a road at the center of Athens

 

Roger…

-Words in the wind your promises…

-I have found you never and nowhere…

-And the moments with you, were prisons of wild life…

-That’s the reason baby I am leaving you…

-Problem… none…

– Free our souls afterwards…

 

* Have you ever noticed the  messages on the walls? Written other times from angry revolutionary people,  other times from in love people, in despair.

In one or another way they have something to say, something to underline, either pretentious, either spontaneous, either by heart.

Spoken walls, with stories to narrate…

Some of these messages mixed up and a sketch made out, by automatic writing.

Do you want to play with me?

– Do you want to play with me?

– I will be a princess!

-Will you be my prince?

-Cause after all… being a child is always magic!

Handcrafted puppets by Latrakia for the puppet theater, made by wooden forks, some imagination, pure enthusiasm, little magic dust, few drops of sparkle, enough energy, plenty of joy and infinitive love for three beloved Latrakia V&M&F.

Are you ready for today’s planet show?

Latrakia (3)

Five oceans people, picturing ourselves in outstanding poses

Me and you, jongleurs in world’s circus scene

Utopian models of another planet, made by pixels

Our size magnified, by big lens of small devices

Adorable lives, with illustration smiles

Blurry personalities, alike behaviors

Washed feelings, matching with perfectionism’s standards

Million of lives patronized by rules

Existing through others’ eyes

Being identified, followed, liked and shared

In a deep need to be recognized

Unfolding the deep of our desires

And still remaining with a gap at heart’s side

In which ocean depths you left your courage?

In which ocean depths you left your courage?

Like a frightened animal closed in the cage

Teeth like a shark lurks to rip you for fun

latrakia_escapism

Escape from your fears

Escape from your tears

Take a deep breath

Continuously fighting for more space to survive

Boundary feelings

Screaming wild and loud with an awkward laugh

Straight to the light, there is a gate to escape

Those smiles…

 

LATRAKIA

 

Hiding feelings behind those smiles…

Projecting their dark desires in meaningless questions, with no point at first glance

They pray for you to fall, putting words in your mouth, that never speaked  out!

Until the very moment, a thunder of knowledge, enlightens your vision

And therefore, you can see, like you were blind before, people pale mornings, passing in front of your eyes, transparent and naked from veils and those smiles…
