When the tide rises

Length: 204 pages28 minutes


Light, sea, existence and love. A journal of adolescence and a transit to maturity. Failures, wandering souls, loves and heartbreaks. What was. What could have been. What will be. Theory, «atheory», utopia and freedom. Some that another reflection, some possible song, some cry without receiver, any flight, new horizons, sometimes rebellious... call it POETRY.

«Life is unpredictable, like the sea. It is bad and good moments without that know what is going to return. Brings you and takes the bright suns that gave light and warmth into your life, kiss accomplice and unexpected pain, a gray afternoon and a loose verse as a passing wave, which sometimes breaks with virulence and other rock bodies in caresses. It is a stranded boat waiting to rise the tide to sail wherever the wind takes you. Life is a poem where the kisses that I stole a night under the stars are written.»
