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 …

Un dulce pecado mortal

Un dulce pecado mortal

/Sweet mortal sin/

Last day of my Puerto Rican
vacation, how do I leave the sun?
Last night of custard apples heat
and extra cubes of summer snow.
I was looking for an ice tea, instead
the purple of my dress melted
“Ven, baila conmigo” – his voice I met.

Two hands of caress and
the pulse of the drums on the street.
Moving feet and bodies to salsa,
leaking rhythm and the eyes of a beholder.
Into the crowded darkness he whispers
“Tu eres como un dulce pecado mortal” and I sigh.

Charged skin with imagination,
my mind engaged in infusion.
Exploring, searching for more and more.
Un espejismo sexual, how do I leave tomorrow?
Innocent girl before the dance.
Woman in his entwines and my heart whirls,
Cariño, es lo que doy, te llevo en mi corazón.

Custard apple – exotic fruit, called Corazon in Puerto rico/ or bulls’ heart/

Ven, baila conmigo – Come, dance with me

Tu eres como un dulce pecado mortal – You are like a sweet mortal sin

Un espejismo sexual – Sexual mirage

Cariño, es lo que doy, te llevo en mi corazón Honey is what I give, you are in my heart

 

Inspired by Juramento- Ricky Martin

Don’t ever let me go to Puerto Rico or listen to Spanish music from now on …
