#Poetry:”Almost There”.


Italian version here: https://loscrittorevolante.com/2021/04/23/ceri-quasi/

.

When you are almost there,

when you arrived, it’s just a step away,

but you don’t arrive,

something is blocking you.

How pissed off?

Like when you’re about to kill a boss,

but he anticipates you.

Taken by the heat you keep beating,

 without healing you, without thinking about your wounds,

he kills you.

Too bad that in life,

you can’t do like in video games.

Yes, when you’re almost there,

when you are about to go out with the girl you like

and the pandemic happens.

And then scleri because you can’t see it,

you lose the compass

and everything is ruined,

I miss friends,

unknown, deleted from social networks.

When you are almost there,

when you take the last exam and they fail you,

when for a single mistake they exclude you,

when you are about to win, but you lose,

for just one detail.

And they become millions, then,

giving reason for strength,

inflating things even more than you do …

And how much time did I waste talking about it,

how much time spent talking to those who didn’t really help me,

how long to make it, “almost”.

If I believed it, I could do it,

I was fucking all these obstacles.

How much it pisses me off,

when you’re almost there,

when I’m almost there …

and I can’t.
