Cásate Conmigo

~

“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-

H.O


“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

Dissipates

Dissipates

~

She always leaves with a smile,

eagerly arrives dragging hope like a blanket

frayed and old.

Love dissipates with time I was told

and hers lacks the gleam of fresh start

feeling worn like old shoes that we keep in the closet

and we can’t toss away.

And I knew that such love wouldn’t stay

when it’s fine to watch flames from afar

but to burn in the blaze, that we need!

Because love without fire

becomes cold with no warning or sign,

just a glow in the distance

of the flares burning out over time-

H.O


“I felt her absence, it was like waking up one day with no teeth in your mouth. You wouldn’t need to run to the mirror to know they were gone”― James Dashner, The Scorch Trials

Enredado ~ Entangled

Enredado

~

¿Por qué regreso a ese momento?

Una tortura recordar el sabor de lo prohibido,

un momento fugaz grabado en el libro de mi vida.

Porque nunca supe entender que las brasas del olvido

fueron llamas quemando entre las piernas,

y en aquel instante

con mis dedos buscando tus pliegues de placer

quería engendrarme en tu cuerpo y nacer

en tus sueños-

Me quedé atrapado mi amor en tu recuerdo

enredado en ese momento-


Entangled

~

Why do I go back to that moment?

A torture to remember a taste of forbidden

a brisk instant recorded on my life journal.

Because I never understood how amber from the past

were ever fire burning between your legs,

and in that moment

with my fingers searching your pleasure folds

I wanted to breed myself in your body

bearing myself in your dreams-

I remained captured my love in your memory

entangled within a moment-

H.O

Envejecer contigo (Grow old with you)

love-life-death

 

Envejecer contigo

~

Quisiera envejecer en tus ojos

el amor colgado en las pestanas y despertar

con el sol en tu cama y mis brazos en tu cintura,

cuanto quisiera mi amor envejecer como pintura

que tus manos han creado colgada en las paredes

de recuerdos vivos, mientras en tus ojos envejezco

tiernamente, el sabor del goce salvaje escondido

entre las arrugas que tu tocas creando música

en mis oídos, mientras envejezco contigo-


Grow old with you

~

I wish to grow old in your eyes

love hanging from your lashes and wake up

with the sun on your bed and my arms on your waist.

I wish I could my love grow old like a painting

created by your hands hanging on the walls

of our memories while in your eyes I grow old

with tenderness, the flavor of wild lust hidden

in between wrinkles that you play creating music

to my ears, while I grow old with you-

H.O


“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!”

― Robert Browning

Flapping Emotions

Flapping Emotions

(does it make a sound if no one to love?)

~

If a story starts with hello, does it ends with goodbye?

What to do with the emotions flapping deep

in the chest like the clouds in the sky?

Clouds are close imitating the shapes

of lifelike, same as what’s in my chest

late at night imitating a love now long gone,

flying high when it feels it’s all wrong

for the emotions to keep

flapping fast in my chest

late at night, when reality escapes

drifting fast in my chest like a cloud in the sky-

H.O

Moments

Buried Skeleton Key

Moments

~

We lived by moments hiding

in between smiles and looks,

your face pale like the moon

your smile brightest at noon

when we buried secrets in the sand.

We loved without haste riding

pleasure late at night when my hand

and lips soothed sunburned skin

under cool sheets,

tasting leftover saltiness

from a bed of grass by the farthest shore

where the waves meet the land.

And by moments we parted

with goodbyes each one less than before

forgetting how love taste

on sunburned skin

on a bed of sand by the farthest shore

 where we buried our moments in the sand-

H.O

Still

Still

~

If blind I was I still could see

your image burnt in places

that haunts me every night,

your face becomes the sight

of dreams my love yet chases

your smile perfectly bright

if blind I was I still could see.

~

If deaf I was I still could hear

your voice so deep within

a melody that’ll never die

in bed my sweetest lullaby

to take my heart into a spin

a sound no silence could defy

If deaf I was I still could hear

~

If mute I was I still could say

within my dreams your name

to give it wings and fly so far

the silent sound around a star

flying above a burning flame

your name inside my heart

If mute I was I still could say.

H.O
