Daddy Our Ballroom is Full of Guests – Matilda Z. Halen
April 22, 2021
They say I will see you again when our ballroom is full of guests
All the devils are there.
“One day you will see the rain in Spain, my pride my joy.”
Velvet chairs and your favourite movie
I don’t remember Vladivostok
From the Lighthouse in Lisbon
To the fire of Bucharest
I remember the snowfall
on the 14th Street North West
Eyes of the Prince in exile.
Daddy our ballroom is full of guests
The general asks if my name is Margarita,
My name is not Margarita.
Love, Oratory and Manifestation at Mephistopheles club
They say I will see you again when our ballroom is full of guests.
All the devils are here.
