Empty Room

No... The happiness their hearts longed for wasn´t inside of a botle of expensive champagne; it was inside of their souls.

Not going back...

An empty glass was the only thing that brought a bit of life into an equally empty room. Gone were those days of wine and roses. But... Were they really here, even for once? Or, were they only a gentle illusion, created to fill some lonely hearts? Perhaps someone, hiding somewhere, could remember that age of glittery dreams and plastic glamour…so, what? There was no way of making those days going back. Life quickly changed, and so did those spirts that only lived to get drowned into a never endless sea of expensive champagne. Suddenly, those endless nights were meaningless for them. Their hearts began longing for something deeper. Just… something that held a bit more of meaning that living to feel the highs brought by a simple kind pf artificial illusion. After looking for that meaning into the worst places, they were able to find that gentle light. It was living inside of them. A gift so simple and beautiful, within reach of everybody. There was no need of wearing expensive designer clothes to feel that kind of natural happiness. It was something organic, like that kind of things that come from deep within. It was so wonderful, it made them get away from the room where they spent so many long nights, celebrating life without any kind of worry
Even more years have passed by, and those bubbly spirits got a little bit more serious, worrying for other things that the latest trends, or the most expensive clothing. But yet, the room stands tall, holding onto the hope of seeing the partying days make a comeback…even for one last time.
But deep inside, the room knows there is no use in having that kind of illusions. Those lost spirts have found something better, a little thing that inspired them to become better human beings. The nonsense was changed into a warm ray of light, brighter and sweeter than the same sun.

We all seem to at one time or another hang on to artificial illusion. Amazing work.
