“No estoy en el presente ni en el pasado.
Cierro mis ojos para explorar lo que alguna vez fue mi soledad.
La soledad donde tenía una lista de palabras vacías.

Son pocos.
En mi cabeza, cada nombre carga un pedazo de mi memoria.
Mi mente susurra los nombres en el silencio.”
Jean Paul Vizuete, Nombres en el Silencio

Can we really close the door on that which still haunts us?”
