Excerpt from “Guilty”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “Guilty”:

“Guilty of not having always put myself first.
Guilty of not always having accepted myself for better or worse.
Guilty of having deemed others’ needs more urgent than mine and
of more value.
Guilty of having demanded the ocean’s grandeur without ever
leaving my bayou.
Guilty of having been ashamed of being a Divine Messiah.
Guilty of having been crushed by my own ego and being my own
pariah.”

Excerpt from “Aspirations”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “Aspirations”:

“I want to keep my heart filled with gratitude,
To keep stashed away all selfish attitudes.
I want to be reborn in my solitude,
To master the climb and reach a new latitude.

I want to want to know but not indulge in curiosity,
To pinpoint and control my own velocity.”

Excerpt from “To See You”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “To See You”:

“To see you is to become you;
To dive through your made up reality and break through to your
truth;
To lift off the ground carried by your breath;
To shudder in pleasure caressed by the stardust streaming from your
chest;
To pierce through your thick fiery shell;
To blink with you and suddenly know you so well.”

Excerpt from “Fallen Angel”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “Fallen Angel”:

“He still stands majestic and God-like…
Even mostly covered by the shadows in the corner.
What’s ironic is that the same awe that makes him divine
Is what makes him a loner.”

Excerpt from “A Premonition”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “A Premonition”:

“I had a premonition today,
I saw the two women I could be someday.
One was surrounded by laughter and joy,
The other one was dark, reserved, and coy.
One had flowers in the creases of her dress,
The other had a robe made of crow’s feathers and pests.”

Excerpt from “I walk”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “I walk”:

“I am the most tired woman I know,
I carry a heavy load but I don’t let it show.
My steps seem fast and sure, but feel timid and slow.
Before I can even stop and take a breath, it’s again time to go.”

Excerpt from “Take a Stand”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “Take a Stand”:

“So when words seem empty and made up
When it feels like it’s hard not to let up,
Take a stand, embrace the silence, keep your head up.”

Excerpt from “Later On”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “Later On”:

“Later on when it’s quiet,
When the typhoon has finished its riot,
When the smoke clears and the air stops being defiant,
You can see the real being…true and unbiased.”

Excerpt from “Senses”

Lyrics Of The Soul: Heartbeat by Detelina Stamatova

Excerpt from “Senses”:

“I taste like the water tastes,
Samples of euphoria and deep sorrow strengthening my ways.
I touch like the world;
in colorful sharp icicles or warm gentle swirls.”
