Jigsaw Feelings

1979 …20 years old…London… Siouxsie and the Banshees. Romantism of the rebellion or already a real introspection in the fractures of our generation. Since, I saw her 8 times in concert, we had our ways to dance, we wanted to be different; we wanted to change the world. Still we are different… the rest, we failed.

Still today this is the soundtrack of my life.

‘Send me forwards-say my feelings
But all the signals-send me reeling
Jigsaw Feeling
One day I’m feeling total
The next I’m split in two
My eyes are doing somersaults
Staring at my shoe
My brain is out of my hand
There’s nothing to prevent
The impulse is quite meaningless
In a cerebral non-event
Five fingers do my walking
Ten toes unravel ‘Knots’
Amorphous jigsaw pieces
Falling into slots
Send me forwards-say my feelings
But all the signals-send me reeling
Jigsaw Feeling
So I just sit in reverie
Getting on my nerves
The intangible bonds that keep me
Sitting on the verge…
Of a breakdown
Of a reaction
Of a result
(defeat me…)..Complete me…maybe…defeat me’
