Pictures here and pictures there.
Pictures of you are everywhere.
Pictures of you here in the air.
Pictures of you make you here.

I see your pictures in my shirt.
Seeing your pictures, I am hurt.
With your pictures, I’ve been heard
For your pictures is in my heart.

Pictures of you while out of sight.
Pictures of you in the shining light.
Pictures on left, pictures on right.
Pictures of you make me all right.

Pictures of you when I’m awake.
Pictures of you when I sleep.
Your pictures when you’re still alive.
Still pictures of you when you died.

Michelle VII

5 July 2002

I finished eight big bottles of beer
Because I remember you Michelle.
My mother asked what’s wrong with me,
I said it’s about a story that’s being sorry.

I asked more and a bottle of whiskey
As my teardrops are falling slowly.
I saw Michelle dancing in my glass
As I finished the whiskey very fast.

I started to shout her name so loud,
Shouting I love her with tears but proud.
Dozens of iced-cubes melted in my hands,
Why Michelle couldn’t understand?

Pictures of Michelle are everywhere
As I open another big bottle of beer.
My father found me sitting on the floor,
Finding out all his beers were no more.

I noticed the world is spinning around,
And found myself lying on the ground.
Still, Michelle is the word I say
While the liquor slowly ends my day.
