La un pahar de whisky

Criticam toți Sfinții care închideau barul

Si toate Mariile Magdalene în devenire

Sã-mi fie cu iertare blasfemia.

Sau cel putin așa credeam,

Că aveam un punct comun.

Dar despre noi și universul nostru mic

Nu prea vorbeam

⁃ Hei, dar mâine ce facem?

Întrebarea veșnicã

Da….și pomii încep iar să înverzeascã

Și tu vorbești ca un intelectual de salcâmul din fața casei,

Dar eu vãd doar un nou anotimp

Între timp

În același timp

În care tu asculți muzica lui Bob Marley.

Până când intr-o zi,

Când mă voi ridica de la masă

Sâ fumez o țigară singură pe balcon.

Acum mă uit la linia de tren

Iar unul a plecat din gară

Fumul se pierde

Printre salcâmii deja înfloriți.

Acum realizez că noi doi

Și o sticlă de whisky

Suntem doar o întâmplare…

E cazul ca Vechea Marie să deschida un nou bar.

Numărul 14. Monologul

Copyright @DCS 2021

E cald şi am obosit să mă cred nemuritor,
azi aş putea accepta că viaţa de apoi a fost înainte,
beau rom şi sunt de acord cu despărţirea,
cu bătrâneţea, cu boala, cu tot ce vreţi.

Ce scurtă durere în inimă e…certitudinea,
Un fulger fără tunet, dar totul revine brusc la normal,
înţelepciunea se strecoară printre tufişuri,
și dragostea mea e doar o maimuţă odihnindu-se.

Câteva cuvinte se rotesc în jurul unei flori,
oboseala e mai plăcută decât sărutul,
hai să lăsăm la o parte planetele, stelele,
dacă putem, de ce să n-o facem, te rog.

Numărul 13. Altitudine

Copyright @DCS 2021

Suntem muzee de frica,
ne ia salcia în brațe și ne ridică și ne pune-n brațele LUI
Dumnezeu, iar El se uită-n ochii noștri
și ne spune să ieșim pe ușa din spate…

Suntem actori de teatru,
după spectacol, fugim repede repede după scenă
la ultimele aplauze, dar nu ne oprim decât în piața mare,
ascultând doar inima cum bate…

Ah, inimăăă…!
Ești doar o căldură roșie într-un oraș părăsit
care mai ascunde din când în când un cântec vesel
scris de un străin pe sumbrele ei străzi…

căci tempus fugit*.

*tempus fugit = timpul trece

De ziua internațională a poeziei, 21 Martie 2021


Imaginează-ți o inimă mare în care încape tot Universul. Plină de praf
Arme
Nevoi
Oameni Și restul.


Privește-o cum nu i se dictează ce simte. Durere
Fericire
Dragoste
Ură
În limite.


Ascult-o cum răzbate să trăiască. Noapte
Zi
Furtună
Soare
De-o doare la bască.


Întreab-o cum poate să cuprindă atât. Oameni Dragoste
Soare
Atingeri
Ce-i stau până-n gât.


Atinge-o într-un fel pe care ea nu-l cunoaște. Timp
Minciuna
Dorința
Apus
O lupta întreagă din fapte.


Oprește-o acolo unde o simți mai aproape. Timp
Suflet
Vise
Stele
Toate închise sub pleoape.


Ș-acum, imaginează-ți o inima mare în care încape tot Universul. Privește-o cum nu i se dictează ce simte. Ascult-o cum răzbate ca să trăiască. Întreab-o cum poate să cuprindă atât. Atinge-o într-un fel pe care ea nu-l cunoaște. Și-oprește-o acolo unde o simți mai aproape.

Episode 1 : Matt Donovan – TVD: The Vampire Diaries – “When enough is enough?”

Copyright @DCS 2021

I am wondering… is there anyone out there actually on team Matt?!

What a character!… what a show!

The first time I watched TVD, I didn’t pay much attention to him. He started off as a deuteragonist but at the same time he was portraited as a love interest, confident and then was transformed into a recurring character, who surprisingly survived till the end of the whole TV series, as a human being.

Matt was there to serve a purpose; portraying the average good looking guy with nothing upstairs, but who would have made a good husband if all that you wanted as a girl was to graduate, get married, have kids and live forever in the same little town, Mystic Falls. He was in a relationship with Elena and they were happy together.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/0faee1209f75c29802363f0df471250c/tumblr_o1sb8lnC4g1rshgzoo1_500.jpgAt the same time, Elena was portraying the silly little teenage girl, who seemed to be curious about discovering life. The series brings together two of the most powerful vampires in the world: Stefan – the protagonist and Damon – the antagonist. The Salvatore Brothers.  Elena falls in love with Stefan, who seems to be more attractive than Matt, due to the fact that he is a vampire. He is good looking, has super powers and takes her under his protective “wing”.

The dream of any teenage girl: dating the ideal hot smart good looking guy, who is better than anyone else in the school. So was Stefan.

Therefore, Matt’s masculinity was overpowered by supernatural forces and people already started to see him as a looser.

Was this fair for his character? Well, I do not think the audience actually cared. The story was not about Matt, but about the two brothers and Elena, so the fact that no one “fought” for his character is because he was designed to serve a purpose, rather than have a huge impact in the life of the main characters of TVD.

Still, somehow, characters developed sympathy for him and that’s one of the reasons why he stayed on the show. In order to portrait Damon as the bad guy, you need reasons to be angry at Damon, but was there actually anyone angry when Damon tried to kill Matt? Or was it quite the opposite, meaning that the audience wanted Damon to kill Matt, but then had a conflict when thinking how Elena would fell about this?

Another question that troubles me is how would TVD have evolved if Matt Donovan was not a part of the cast for the entire series?

I did not really see the unique point of sale so to speak of this character. Really now, thinking of all the events happening in this series, I am wondering who has this character on top of the producers’ mind when thinking of a meaningful moment? Could we find any memorable moments when this character’s presence had an unforgettable impact on the course of events? On any scene what so ever? What type of character is he?!

Background? He has no meaningful impact on the turn of events that actually kept the audience of the show feeling the drama happening in there.   

So maybe a recurring character? He certainly appeared on this show way more than needed.

Why did he have so much screen time? This is what I have been asking myself constantly after seeing him in Season 1, when let’s say he had a reason to be there. Being Elena’s ex, the good guy who always supported her, a shoulder to cry on, a supportive friend for Elena, Caroline, Tyler.

Even in season 1… surpassingly his love for Elena, jealous of Stefan, he ends up having a love story with one of her best friends? What moral, good guy does that? I mean he had a photo with Elena along with his sister’s, in his room and had Caroline on his sofa…

The part where Caroline sings for Matt in season 2? Lovely. Why did that scene exist? I personally, did not feel the feelings between them as a love couple.

Season 3 was a revelation of the so called love story between Matt and Caroline when out of the deepest love for Matt, she falls for his best friend Tyler. So Matt goes back to square one, only this time having had his heart broken by both Caroline and Tyler. Instead of a progression of his character, he is hurt and is portrayed as the lonely boy, who tries to find his way in a world where vampire and werewolves seem to attract the hottest girls.

At the end of season 4, he becomes the love interest of a vampire, after he made clear throughout the entire show how much he hated vampires, considering them monsters, only to this very point, when he ends up kissing an original vampire, who probably was more dangerous than Stefan and Damon put together : Rebekah Mikaelson.

Now that is what I call a twist of events. So just when I thought Matt would finish his part on TVD, he reaches the only moment of glory of his entire path, by dating an original ‘monster’. You’ve  probably noticed by now, I am not a big fan of Matt, but I saw an opportunity to save this character from the lonely, boring, reserve-option-boyfriend, when the plot brought him together with Rebekah. Picture this: Matt, the only ‘normal human’, surrounded by supernatural creatures, reaches the cold, stone heart of an original vampire. Too much fiction? Sure it is.

If only the script made Matt an evolving character, taking him out of the misery and loneliness, by making him leave everything behind, as he didn’t have much anyway, and start living a little more adventurously with Rebekah. He could have complemented her with his humanity and she could have shown him a totally different perspective of life.

It was not meant to be this time either for Matt. This time or any other time whatsoever.

I find particularly intriguing how this character was shaped to exist in a world, in a city full of supernatural creatures, with no incredible skills, most of the time feeling out of place and alone. Sometimes I think this character would have been the perfect candidate for suicide. Yet, he ‘rises’ and becomes a sheriff. He, out of everyone, becomes the protector of Mystic Falls, the city owned by the supernatural. How was he protecting ‘his’ city? By kicking the supernatural out? Why would anyone listen to him in the first place?

The most crazy thing about Matt is that he somehow manages to stay alive just by being a simple human being, whilst the original vampires die.

How out of proportion is this? The very creators, the most powerful originals die, but he stays alive ! It is simply mind-blowing that after everything, one of the main characters, the protagonist, Stefan, dies. It is hard enough to comprehend how Elijah dies while this human stays alive, nevertheless Klaus.

To conclude, there is way too much to explore about the character of Matt Donovan and this will be done throughout the next episodes.

Numărul 11: Suflet muribund

Copyright @DCS 2020

Plutesc în vid
Mă-nec în sufletu-mi deşert arid
Fără să vreau, mă sinucid.

Prosper şi zac
Mă lupt cu-al timpului atac
Eu nu mai pot să zic nimic. Şi tac

Iar cerul se desprinde-n două
O lume mie, o lume nouă
Fără vreun rost. Doar plouă

Şi visele îmi sunt urmate
De-un dirijor, şi blestemate
Să nu fie pe veci uitate!

Plutesc în vid.
Mă-ntorc în sufletu-mi deşert arid.
Şi-o iau din loc. Încet, timid…

Numărul 10: Of, unde ești tu, Sarasvati?

Copyright @DCS 2020

Of, unde eşti tu, Sarasvati?

Răpus de vanitate, mergând printre păcatele-mi deşarte

Pe drumul spre infern, lângă izvor, tot căutam s-aud stinghere şoapte.

Of, unde eşti tu , Sarasvati?

Pe munţii ce se revarsă în ocean îi caut fără hartă

Şi nu văd decât cercuri verzi-albăstrui ce-mi hrănesc speranţa deşartă.

Of, unde eşti tu , Sarasvati?

Îmbătat de parfumul de lotus, pe ale lui pure petale

Îmi scriu cele patru tristeţi , gânduri ce mi-au fost fatale.

Of, unde eşti tu, Sarasvati?

Hămesită, mă hrănesc cu miere, până ce mă prăbuşesc

Tăindu-mă, las sângele să curgă, spre râul tău, cel îngeresc.

Of, unde eşti tu, Sarasvati?

Călcând tăciunii roşiatici, mă-ndrept uşor spre iadul sălbatic

Deoarece ceasul s-a inversat ş-acum bate tac-tic.

Of, unde eşti tu, Sarasvati?

Înghit flăcările, vărsându-mi galbenele poezii

În cimitirul cu pene, până când eu nu voi mai fi.

Of, unde-ai fost tu, Sarasvati?
