I wonder

You went into the desert

and left a dead ten year old turtle there

I wonder if there was some mystery behind it

And I wonder if you cried

I wonder if your tears

revived the dead sands of time

or if you were thinking about your life.

I wonder if that turtle was a witness

Of the nights I was honored

to get a little closer to you.

I wonder if the sun awoke you

From some kind of slumber.

I wonder if your car was for a moment

a horse running through the sand and wind

So you could take a friend

To its last good bye.

You went into the dessert

And shed so many layers

Are you still being you

Or is it just the sand that got into your heart?

I wonder if you wonder

I wonder about you.

I'm thinking about thinking about you

You're just like a whirlwind of dust and heat

I can see you running to the dessert

trying to find some old ruins

of who you used to be,

Ozymandias glorious and powerful.

But now only your feet remain

How is it that you are you

Someone so mysterious

Someone so strong but little as a grain of sand

I wonder if you wrote your name

The reflection of mine

In the sand of time

I wonder if your old friend

Was the last witness to account I cherished you

So blindly, so fondly

For the very first time

I wonder if you'll ever find another

Reason to keep smiling

I wonder if the sun illuminated

Your tiger's eyes

I wonder if your eyes were as vivid as they use to be

I wonder if you wondered about me

While you see our names carried away

In the sands of a lonely desert

Where you took a friend to sleep.

Cuerpos Celestes

I stopped believing in stars after I saw that they also have wishes. They wish to be seen only because of their brilliance. They want every eye in the universe to look up at them, and they never return back the favor. I stopped believing in astrology. Then you came. Two magnificent bright stars embedded on a porcelain face. Two tiger's eyes that look at me and burn me. Two gemstones that make every wish there is in the universe burn within me. Then you came.... Made me wish....

Teachin' Me

You taught me how do dance 

At the verge of my destruction

You taught me how to laugh

At the beach of deepest sadness

You taught me how to think 

At the edge of certain madness

You taught me how to silence

At the brink of deafening screaming

You taught me life lessons 

"Never let happiness depend

On Something or a Thing"

You taught me how to spare

The rewards of my life

You taught me how to fly

With little weed and smiles 

You taught me how to feel 

Someone close to me

You taught me how to yearn

The smell of someone on my bed

You taught me how to see 

Someone in my mind

You taught me how to paint 

Two beautiful eyes on a memory 

You taught me how not to miss

Where I am coming from 

...But the things you never taught me...

You never taught me how

not to love you

You never said I love you

when your feelings faltered you 

And now I live a life 

Where there is nothing 

Stopping me from thinking 

About you

Ain't nothing about this life

Teaching me a damn thing 

About how not to love someone 

That doesn't love me back

Mantras

The light is faint 

I can see your mischievous eyes

Laying on my bed

The sheets trace you, turin figure

Heavenly figure 

White as paper 

I dare to write the more fine verses 

With my mouth until I run out of ink 

You offered yourself as the most humble 

Sacrifice, I must, for it is in this lonely hour

That lovers seal the pact of eternity 

It is at this lonely hour when ghosts and stars 

Witness the scene where love is conceived 

Even though this might be casual 

Even though it might be only me 

Dripping my love all over within your fissures

Let the night cover our skins 

Let the heat temper our frozen hearts 

As I devour every last breath you give to me 

When I attack your neck 

Every mantra you posses now belongs to me 

Wrap me in your warm embrace 

As the past, present, and future unfold 

Let me know what lays deep within 

The pages covering your body

Let me write down with flagrant ink 

How much I desire you and 

How much you're not mine 

Let me enjoy at least the most precious 

Person you are 

Let me caress you one more time 

For this is only me 

Do you feel it as well?

Let me make this clear:

I know you don't believe

In this kind of love

I know you're about to leave, but...

I know that you don't accept it

Not in the sense that you deny it 

You simply don't believe it 

That a forbidden love could ever flourish 

Let me make this clear.

You are the most ravishing circumstance 

I've encountered in the middle 

Of the desert of this life of mine 

I simply refuse to let you go 

But my respect for you is bigger than my pride

Bigger than my selfishness 

But never bigger than my love for you 

I always thought that destiny loved to sew

And whenever its threads get tangled

Circumstances, destiny, tends to happen 

But, I, naïvely believed in that 

I was mistaken.

Just as someone such as destiny 

Is doing some hobby 

He tends to make mistakes 

He decides to untie the bad knots 

And start again

It might be something insignificant for him 

But for us, mere poetical mortals, is dreadful pain.

Let me tell you

That I am uncertain if this was a mistake

Committed by destiny, but for the time being

The time I spent looking at your tiger's eyes 

The time I spent smiling at your smile 

The time I spent caressing your body 

The time I got lost within the gray murmurs

Of your soul 

That, my beloved friend, was not a mistake 

You were the fire that ignited my dead heart 

You were the only light I could see in the 

Middle of my darkness

You were for a moment mine

I believe that we are never tied to someone 

Just as the red thread legend assures us

That thread is full of knots and dead ends 

Or walls from which such thread goes through cracks 

I assure you, my dear, if you ever leave...

I don't know... Will I follow you just to be near you?

You will not be mine, that is for sure

But it is you...

The one who lately has been giving life to many poems

When the touch of someone remains 

As the trace of my hands on the sands of the beach

Of your skin, it is something impossible to get rid of 

No wave, no wind, or time would eradicate such caress

Let me tell you as well:

That, even though life ain't that easy, you, specially you,

deserve the best to happen to you. You have given it all 

And deserve to feel just as good as you have made others feel.

Just assure me one thing...

Never stop being my friend. 

No matter how far you are 

A piece of my heart goes with you...

You guide me to the restroom

So you can put your smoky mask on

Flaming tiger's eyes leer at me 

I can't help but notice there are no prettier gemstones.

As a surgeon, you begin to clean 

The crystal boat on your command 

You begin to sing with air and fire 

Reaching the chakras in my throat. 

You blow the truth onto my face

And I can see the green and purple fumes 

I can see your cherry lips

Speaking of ancient times and pleasure 

As if you were the sun 

I begin to tremble and laugh 

Because you're now the moon 

Giving me life advice. 

The fiery black hair on your head

Poisonous spikes I like to caress 

When your head on my lap lays down

And your body wanders new galaxies. 

That ever lasting smile of yours 

Is always sealed when you're on that boat 

Floating in the middle of a starry sky

It is only me and you 

Accompanied by a strange kind of humor 

A humor where I get to be me 

And laugh with transparency 

Because I tend to laugh always before walls. 

Then, all of a sudden, I reach the sand of your beaches 

And I write my name over and over and over on the sand

Until the sea turns into foam 

I can smell the salty water dripping on the shore. 

Then, all of a sudden; all that I see, 

Are those tiger's eyes hiding

Behind the fumes of your mouth and mine 

Until you close your lips

Bring with you that crystal boat 

Cause that is when I can be me or at least 

I can be more me and you can be more you 

I love it when you put your smoky mask on. 

Blow me for I am smoke and misery 

Turn me into a cloud, so I no longer feel heavy

Make my essence disappear into thin air

Give me on more time. 

I love to float on your starry night sky

We begin to swirl like galaxies 

In the middle of the universal darkness of your room

And the storm begins: 

It is now the fumes and I

You turned into my darkness 

I turned into your light

We are fused like ying and yang

Gray murmurs fill up the room

And in the middle I can see your tiger eyes 

Leering at me, wanting me more, dazzling me more 

I can't help but to worship you like my only god

I dare to burn my hand when I caress your chest 

I dare to burn my heart at once cause I've never loved 

With such intensity, never I've been forced 

I dare turn into ashes even when you are no more than air 

Carry me over with every blow you give 

Take me every time through the sands of your body 

Take my hand and lead me to the rest-room

Hold my head within your hands and enchant me with those tiger eyes

Blow me one more time like smoke and viniq wine

Make my world go round like galaxies and stars 

Fill my room with gray mantras 

Illuminate my life with fiery stones I love to call tiger's eyes

Trapped

What can someone do

When words won't come out

When they are all brewing inside

But won't manifest on paper

What can someone do 

When all the ink running through veins 

And under skin it starts to ache 

When everything in life becomes dull

If there is an escape to this sentiment I'm feeling 

Why does it seem that no one cares about it 

I'm surrounded by many

But still feel like a shadow 

Where is he? Where is she?

They've stolen everything that kept me awake

Now I only dream on how to get a hold of both of them 

Now I'm only a dreamer trying to escape reality 

I am.

I'm trying to escape the pain

That caresses brought 

I'm trying to escape the nightmare they call love

How come everyone sees love red and pink

When in reality it is all dark and violet

It destroys lives

It makes chests hurt

It shuts poets mouths 

When it is unrequited 

When it is forbidden 

When it is only on one side of the river 

Now I ask myself 

What can someone do 

When words won't come out 

To say all they want to say 

They just remain quiet 

Yet they burn their cage 

Yet they mean nothing 

Because they were not said 

To those they were meant to 

They will never be said 

They will remain shut 

Hermetic 

Mere conglomerates of sentiments 

Forming a weak barrier around 

A heart who used to love flagrantly 

I just don't know what can someone do...

Silence

There's been silence, trapped

I feel as if words cluster inside my lips

As if everything I want to say is meaningless

'Cause I feel it was not said to you

Never a poet has been so quiet 

In his short eternal life

Never a poet has been so injured 

For feeling a passionate unquenchable love

Silence, is what I see coming out of my mouth 

Dripping shadowy ink that stains 

Even the whitest of souls 

Silence, the stain of red flagrant love

There is silence in your aura

When I observe your naked figure

Androgynous shadow of lust

What have you turned me into?

Allay, Silence! Allay!

I quietly shout to the heavens 

As every time I get to admire those figures 

I indiscriminately fall in love with them 

But they don't see I fall in pieces

The poet remained silent.

A Poem About Midnight

A poem about midnight

Is about crickets and stars 

Clouds and moons shy enough

To hide behind them

It is about azure powders of dreams that settle below

Neon curtains of purple and lust

It is about people and arms and legs

All turning into knots and saliva

It is all about the violins of the night

It is all about ponds jealous enough 

To portray images of a younger moon 

under the same moon you used to love me

It is about the rhythm of the clocks 

And the whispering noses

It is about the cracking of the beds or

The annoying babies crying 

It is about the secrets that the night covers

It is about how you get to touch the flame of passion 

From faraway lovers 

Dreams and stars, fumes and blankets

Moons and ponds, silence and crickets

Memories and insomnia, Nightmares

It is about love and a darkening ceiling to the naked eye

In the end, we are all swallowed by the eternal darkness of a lovely night.

This-or-That

Can I call you this or that?

That is my question since I met you.

I try to decipher the enigmas of your body. 

I've traced many trails on the sand of your skin,

Yet I cannot tell if I can call you this or that.

I touch fire whenever I get in contact with you.

You're a flame I cannot touch. 

You're a flame that doesn't burn. 

Yet into ashes my heart has turned.

You've drained me, This-or-That

You used to be Somebody; however, 

It seems that that was only your last name

When I try to look through the fumes your fire exerts,

I see that face of yours smiling at me.

"This-or-That" is on my mind, yet I only know one name

A name as mine, as shallow, yet whenever it is you who carries it, 

It turns into gold dripping down from my tongue. 

It is you, This-orThat, the one I seek. 

It is you the one that is forbidden to me,

Yet I don't know "Sin-or-Virtue" your nickname could be

But I assure this life of mine 

He is the only heaven in the middle of my hell.

This-or-That
Can I call you this or that?
That is my question since I met you.
I try to decipher the enigmas of your body. 
I've traced many trails on the sand of your skin,

Yet I cannot tell if I can call you this or that.
I touch fire whenever I get in contact with you.
You're a flame I cannot touch. 
You're a flame that doesn't burn. 

Yet into ashes my heart has turned.

You've drained me, This-or-That
You used to be Somebody; however, 
It seems that that was only your last name
When I try to look through the fumes your fire exerts,

I see that face of yours smiling at me.
"This-or-That" is on my mind, yet I only know one name
A name as mine, as shallow, yet whenever it is you who carries it,
