WIM MERTENS: "Struggle For Pleasure"

There’s opportunity in any adversity. There’s truth in any lie. It’s freezing outside and the room does not seem to get any warmer. A heart ain’t like water, that evaporates when heated, that becomes solid when frozen. Its pace does not adjust to time zones, it follows an individual rhythm. You need not travel long distances to find out that you are still where you had left.

I wonder when this whirlwind will end. I am a diver under water, longing for the surface. Like there are winds, there are currents. Like there is sea, there is air. One life is never enough to do it all. So don’t waste your time trying.
