Wrote this last night. Felt the muse in me.

Nautical Voyage

One more star passes us by
In the galaxy of our dreams
Where we sleep in sparks
And we fall like meteorites.

Into the atmosphere
From the big black gap
Grabbed by the magnetic field
Pulled in by gravity.

What once lied above
Now cries bellow
On the dark side of love
Is where you find fear.

There in the mud
Where the tears of the clouds
Meet the bottom ground
And the roots bestowed upon.

We were once satellites
Orbiting around the sun
Two celestial bodies
That dreamt about earth.

We were snow flakes
In the winter storm
We would hug nature
And never let go.

What once lied in us
Now hides under
From the dark inside of clouds
It rains and thunders.

There in the muck
Where two figures take shape
Down on the bottom ground
Where the roots are bestowed upon.

The green and the brown
Paints such a magical color
Like fruits that are grown
With an intrinsical flavor.

On this, our nautical voyage
We go through these asteroid rings
Across the torrents of space debris
We’ve survived the geomagnetic disturbance
And now we find ourselves safe and appease.

We are not ordinary chondrites
We are cosmic jewels carved by Father Sky
We are children brought in by Gaia
To live off of this planet’s elemental nuclei.

The Proposal

Trying to find a way to say this
Because for me this is all too new
It has been lingering in my head for an eternity
And I don’t know to express without giving a clue.

I have no need to be what society expects of me
But when it comes to you I can’t help but to stay still
“So what is then?” You ask; “what is going to be?”
Would you wait forever to finally say what I feel?

I don’t know anything about gardens
Flowers be red, violet, yellow or blue
Is there any way that you can find me?
I seem to be lost in the thoughts of you.

How can a poet not be romantic?
I see this life for what is it
And you’re the best that has happened, the best experience
So what am I to do to extend and expand what we have here?

The words escape me and I have a lot to say
I have a need that seeks to fulfill in me everyday
And I bet that by now you’ve been patiently waiting
But I don’t know how to make this a memorable memory.

I don’t know much about pretty dresses
But a white gown would look beautiful on you
So what am I saying in these lexes and verses?
The one question that you want me to ask you.

So I’m ready to take on that step
If you’re ready to take it with me
This is the only way I know how to do this
And to hope that you say “yes”, so our lives will be complete.

A poem I’m working on… It’s incomplete still, but I want to share what I’ve written so far.

Bigger Place

If there’s anything left beautiful in my life
It is you
If there’s anything still worth fighting for
It is you
If there’s anything else to cry about now
It is you
If there anything more that I could trust
It’s in you.

Time is not sufficient to spend it all together
Even in my private moments I think of you
Words are not enough to express these feelings
Even in my silent moments I still love you.

We will need a bigger place for our love to spread
But if we don’t, we can manage by holding us even closer
And like in dreams you’ll pour the wine and I’ll break the bread
And all that is meant to be will be and it’ll be even better.

Oda a tu Bella Esencia de Mujer

Eres como una estrella que destella cuando despega de este plano astral
El fuego el cual produces, que aquí dejas, quema y quema por días y días
Eres esa ave que de las cenizas emana, hija del sol, ardiendo como el infierno
Eres un ángel caído, con las alas destiladas, amarradas sobre tu hermosa figura.

Tu cabello que son llamas que arden por todo un milenio
Tus ojos dos joyas que hipnotiza aun hasta el más ciego
Tu piel es suave tela, es como satín revestido en seda
Que con tan solo tocarle uno siente que se envicia de por vida.

Tus besos son como dulces con sabor a caramelo
Tu lengua es aguja que inyecta una dosis de adrenalina
Cada vez que me besas, a tus pies yo me entrego
Cada vez que te acercas, nuestros cuerpos muy por dentro se acojinan.

Y es que no hay nada más
Que tu bella esencia de mujer
Que me pueda a mi traer placer
Y es que no hay que desee más
Que tu bella esencia de mujer,
Que aquí quiera yo tener.

Simple, Humilde y Sano

Cuando el mundo era pequeñito
Todo era simple, todo era bonito.
Cuando mirabas por la ventana, esperabas
A que tu padre del trabajo llegara.
Cuando agarrados de la mano
Íbamos cruzando al otro lado, de la calle,
Era como viajar al otro lado del mundo.
Entre los límites de la cuadra de nuestra calle,
Íbamos imaginando como sería ver el resto de la ciudad;
Como seria poder visitar otro lugar.
Cuando tener automóvil era para aquel que fuese abogado
Algún doctor, o algún licenciado.
Cuando ir a pies a lugares lejanos
Era la única opción y uno nunca se hallaba cansado,
Y el levantarse sábado temprano
Por no perderte aquel programa entonces televisado.

Cuando el mundo era pequeño
Todo era humilde, todo era bueno.
La noche olía a grama, el día olía miel.
Cuando jugábamos con tierra
Y jugábamos con muñecos hechos de papel.
Cuando jugábamos a imaginarnos
Que éramos, caballeros, príncipes y reyes.
Cuando no sabíamos mucho del mundo allá afuera
Ni ninguna sus leyes.
Pero solíamos respetar y seguir las reglas
Que nuestros padres nos inculcaban
Y no pensábamos en romper ninguna de ellas.
Cuando la disciplina era la medicina
Para nuestros berrinches y caprichos;
La vitamina que refuerza nuestros valores morales.
Cuando papá y mamá reflejaban ser ejemplos ejemplares.
Cuando el amor y el respeto eran socialmente aceptables.

Cuando el mundo era chiquito
Todo era sano, todo era bonito.
Nuestro cuarto era nuestro templo,.
Nuestro fuerte contra el mal ajeno
Cuando tener un amigo era algo ameno,
Y hablar por horas porque pensábamos
Que el reloj que cuenta el tiempo
Era interminable.
Cuando nuestros padres se hacían responsables
Por aquellas travesuras que nosotros
En nuestra inocencia no sabíamos contendrían consecuencias.
Cuando el rencor duraba segundos
Y muchas veces ni siquiera había alguno.
Cuando el mundo era bien chico
Para mí, ser pobre era ser rico.

Quadro Di Parole

I have found myself lost in you
Been following you in my dreams
I try to learn more about this magic
And all about your beautiful smile.

I enjoy this time spent with you
While trying to seize the opportunity
I’m happy that you’re here with me
You make every second of this life count.

I’m grateful that I’ve got to meet you
And if only live for one more day
I’m gonna spend it all being with you
Being happy, admiring your beautiful eyes.

I cannot wait to tell everyone this story
Of how you changed the world for me
I look with optimism towards our future
I cannot think of a better quality time.

I have found love in your eyes
You made me forget about the hard times
You’re a reminiscence of the good old days
When I use to pursue the passion of life.

Your smile has revealed to me
All of the love that your heart contains
I’m thankful for having you here with me
And I’m gonna love you with all my heart…
For all the time…
All the time that still stays….
And if all was to be gone tomorrow
If only one day remains…
Before it all goes away…
I’m gonna be happy… I won’t give in into sorrow…
I’m gonna live for today.

I wrote this poem 11 years ago. It was in Spanish. I decided to translate it and post it here. Enjoy!

Woman

When I presence your exuberant essence
I faint into the most profound of the infinite
There’s something in your eyes, the way that they glare
That makes me weak in my knees, and for that I declare
I want to feel those silky fragile hands brush over my dry dismaying face
There’s something about your soul that makes mine get drunk with grace.

There are no doses enough for me to drown the picture of you engraved in my mind
Nor lights enough to blind me from the image I wish to see with these eyes
Inside the madness of eternal love and even beyond I want to stay
I don’t want to wake up from the glory that your beautiful body tends to display.

All I ask for are a few syllables diagraming as synonyms for my fix
It is enough for me to simply see you forty feet of distance from me
Even then your radiant energy will reach and fill me up with what I need
To heal these shattered wings; which I shall use to set flight to the heavens, where all the angels live.

If pouring is ever having a need for you
I‘ll pray for there to be rainstorm
And if bleeding is dying for you
I will dive into the depths of a hailstorm
Because when you love
You sacrifice it all, even my own sake
Just to feel your breath
Breathe into me, if that what it takes.

A whirlwind of emotions alters this river when of your absence calls
And the birds they rest in their nests, as the sun sets off into an eclipse for infinity
There’s an immense need for you in this solitary room, where I signal for your soul
And in this alleged heart of mine I long to tact the heat waves of your femininity.
