Eventide given away

Te extraño

Every eventide of
humid grasp with you,
was locked with
the amaranth satin
on the king size bed
and I gave it away to
the poor guy looking
for blanket on the street.

Every solemn oath
penetrating the silence
after the flight in April,
echoed in barbarian Latin,
harassing the treaty of peace
and I borrowed it to
the scout without speech
for his first victory in a battle.

Every “te amo”
written with lipstick
on the silk of my back
was burning the surface
of my sensuous portrait
and I shared it with
the bubbles in the bath,
ready to forget your glance.

Every blissful tear
after an illusion with you
was knitted in the steps
of our dance at night,
killing every sad twilight
and I donated that too,
to the ballerina in “Swan lake”,
she needed extra sparkles.

And now, counting the sullen
remains of your presence, it’s been
more than an hour that
I listen to “Noviembre sin ti”
and I wonder, why nobody
told me how perilous
one simple song can be …


Te extraño – I miss you

Te amo – I love you

Noviembre sin ti – November without you

Inspired by “Noviembre sin ti”- Reik

    What a beautiful piece full of beautiful images and acts of kindness! How do you say “I love your poetry”? :)

    Wow, this leaves me speechless. You bring out that feeling for longing so well, and I love how you weave a few words of other languages in to your poetry. Gives it so much more feeling. It was sad to see everything getting donated though…the memories they hold.

    Simply beautiful Bee!
