“Cásate conmigo” I whispered on your ear
It’s been so long my dear
since words I never said but meant
to hand you all the stars and take you away.
It’s been too long and only in dreams
you suddenly appear as beautiful as ever
so real the taste of that last kiss
still remains forever-
If I could just return and find your arms
flourished with promises left
abandoned words that never grew
when lives then drifted apart
and only turned into a dream
that haunts me at night,
I would then say the words I knew
were stuck inside my heart-
“In my heart, I knew that only the lucky found that sort of happiness. And I had always run short on luck.” ― S.H. Kolee, Fated
Si por ti pudiera descorchar el cielo
y derramar azul de tus ojos un reflejo
para embriagarme lento
perdido en tu mirada-
Si por ti pudiera desgarrar las nubes
en un lago de besos ahogarme en tu boca,
y si acaso pudiera recortar estrellas
iluminar los sueños que tu amor evoca
y lo haría todo, si por ti pudiera.
If I could
If for you I could open up the skies
I would pour the blue to reflect your eyes
slowly intoxicated behind every look
only if I could-
I would tear apart every passing cloud
and in my delusion
in a lake of kisses drown inside your mouth .
If for you I could trim the shiniest stars
to light up your dreams
for if love beseems
I would do it all only if I could.
El amor se espanta, se ahoga-
Perdido en las sombras del tiempo
envejece en la consciencia
y estremece las entrañas.
El amor como toda ciencia
una prueba de existencia
que no engaña,
pero deja sola el alma
y te arrebata la calma
en noches a solas ardiendo
por recuerdos malgastado
cuando una vez marchitado
el amor te deja y a solas
poco a poco va muriendo.
My eyes see more than I wish to see
my heart beat less every passing day
and love, well love I cannot say
if it was real as much as ideal.
But how do I miss an endearing look
as it wasn’t her more than it was me
the one weaving dreams
broken every time I misunderstood.
And now it just seems
life gives me the vision
to understand love when no longer near
and love, well love I can say my dear
was my life’s addiction
and then disappeared.
I strip love shedding dreams of gone lovers
leaving traces of forgotten names,
a constant yearn lonely night uncovers
when under sheets played the sweetest games.
And yearn a must such beauty I cannot find
comparing love in memories now gone
a certain look later life defined,
a parting kiss I followed thereon.
And now I seek to taste love same as then
in between her arms that eagerly embrace
I’ll try to find the magic lost when once again
in her body my lost wishes I’ll replace.
I strip love shedding dreams of times now past
eyes closed wishing her lips will be my last.
I Will Not Say
I will not say love, even if I might
dreams become confused
sometimes late at night
when the words I used
burned within my lips
and love suddenly slips-
I will not say need, even if I do
fears will take hold
that you’ll walk away
when such need withhold
deep within my heart
and may break me apart-
I will not say wait, even if I want
love is but a choice
in my search for more
than a loving voice,
even when adore
in my heart concede
and you become a need-
Why must I find you in the land of lost?
My heart attach easily to wandering souls
a magnetic force pulling and pushing
like a marionette my strings all crossed
and I follow, like a fool I follow-
We both know there are no controls
for tossed in the wind wishes
disperse without true direction
while the lies I swallow,
and with every pull I create a verse
to remind me of you.
