stairway to hope

In the mountains of Oaxaca.
She sat on these steps, staring at me, while her mother lined up for free provisions.
All I could see in her eyes was a glow of hope.
The hope that maybe one day, we would all be equal.


through the fog

the mist clouds my mind
fills my lungs with life
i run my hand along the stone,
wet and cold


once upon…

every inch my fingers travel is another hour
of my time gone by;
one more grain of sand
fallen to the bottom of the glass
never to be felt again


yellow princess

Xilitla, Central Mexico Rainforest
Under the thick fog and rain, we walked through stones gates, passages, stairs and more gates to nowhere.
The perfect universe, castle, for a yellow princess. A surrealistic domain built by an Englishman 50 years earlier..
Absurd mazes and structures withstanding time and blending into a wet green world that would grow forever.
It was just as I had imagined, she defied heights and mazes, as much as she defied the odds for us to be together.
She was so little, so frail, yet as tall and strong as these sculptures, reaching out to infinity.
This is her kingdom I thought, It’s time for me to go.


new light

but under every arch that i pass
new light is scattered in new ways
new rain carries new tastes
these foreign flowers –
i wonder what their names
could be


my sun is setting

As I watch her, in the distance, camera in hand, I realize that I am standing En La Sombra Del Tiempo.
I once was in the light, on the other side, standing as shiny and as tall as these absurd monuments.
I have no fears except for one. not seeing her anymore, on the day that this heavy metal door shuts.
All I hoped for was, that when, that moment came, she would hold my hand.
If not, it didn’t matter anymore, since all had been written, and no one and no time could ever take it away.


hold…

hold my hand
hold me,
my love


Now…

now
that everything has been written
all that remains is, hope, silence, images, nostagia, and their shadow

en la sombra del tiempo
love, happiness, pain, and the absurd are inseparable

ahora
que ya esta escrito todo
solo queda la esperanza, el silencio, las imagenes, la nostalgia, y su sombra

pero nunca el olvido

en la sombra del tiempo
la felicidad, el amor, el dolor, y el absurdo son inseparables


Zocalo strangers

Although we all move like a herd, no direction for, there is always a pause, a glimpse, maybe even a smile.

We all look at each other, as if we needed to share a secret, a thought, an instant, and we do in silence.


The Runaway “Now we’re swallowing the shine of the summer”

The Runaway

© 2011 daniel malka all rights reserved

“Runaway”

There’s no saving anything
Now we’re swallowing the shine of the summer
There’s no saving anything
How we swallow the sun

But I won’t be no runaway
Cause I won’t run
No I wont be no runaway
What makes you think I’m enjoying being led to the flood?

We got another thing coming undone
And its taking us over
We don’t bleed when we don’t fight
Go ahead, go ahead

Throw your arms in the air tonight
We don’t bleed when we don’t fight
Go ahead, go ahead
Lose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I’m enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone

But I won’t be no runaway
Cause i wont run
No I won’t be no runaway
Cause I won’t run

No I won’t be no runaway
But what makes you think im enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone
And its taking us over

We don’t bleed when we dont fight
Go ahead, go ahead
Throw your arms in the air tonight

We don’t bleed when we don’t fight
Go ahead, go ahead
Lose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I’m enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone
We got another thing coming undone
And it’s taking forever

I’ll go braving everything
With you swallowing the shine of the summer
I’ll go braving everything
Through the shine of the sun

But I won’t be no runaway
Cause I won’t run
No I won’t be no runaway
Cause I won’t run

No I won’t be no runaway
What makes you think im enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone
And its taking us over
We dont bleed and we dont fight

Go ahead, go ahead
Throw your arms in the air tonight
We dont bleed when we dont fight
Go ahead, go ahead
Lose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I’m enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone
We got another thing coming undone
And its taking us over

And it’s taking forever
