When The Night Falls

And when the night falls,
We meet again,
Among the city lights,
Among the stars.

The stars that made us dream,
As the night approaches us,
And we find life
In the songs they play.

We danced,
Among the crowds,
We sang through the iridescent night.

When the night falls,
The lights play with each other
Making figures in the blue night sky.

When the night falls
I am reminded that I am alive,
And that is when I dream again.
The taste of beer reminds me of those nights,
Illuminated by the Texas lights.

I find myself again,
Contemplating at night,
The life, the ambiance, the lights.
And I am reminded…

We only live once.

If Love Was a Plant

If love was a plant,
Would you let it wither?
Would you nurture it each day?
Would you let it bloom?
Or would you let it die?

Alone and forgotten,
Do not leave our love,
What took a lifetime to build,
Slowly decays and fades away.

At the leafs in the fall,
Everything inside dies
The iridescent coloring of fall
Is so beautiful yet so sad.

And in this pain I dwell.
Would we withstand
Or shall we fall apart?

Have my prayers reached the skies
Or are yours the same as mine?

Bombarded by my thoughts,
I stand.
Left alone in despair,
My love mourns.

You seem to care, at times,
At times you forget.
How to I heal my broken heart?
Shattered and splashed.

A disarray of thoughts,
Cloud my sight,
And all I see is me,
Picking up the pieces you left.

Will our love wither or withstand?
You tell me, my love.

The Intricate Universe

android-wallpaper-astronomy-dolomites-1624496

Connected among the stars,
Lies the connection,
Of our puzzled universe.

Some watch from afar,
Others dream of being there,
While others rest above the clouds.

How many centuries have there been?
How many stars can I see?

Through trial and error,
We gaze from afar,
Wondering how
It all came to be?

Far, far above
Farther than the clouds,
Farther than the sun,
We discovered there is more.

Everything then
Seems in disarray…
But what do we know?

Where do our paths cross?
Where do our souls meet?
When we gaze above,
Where do we stand?

Are we all connected?
Is it all relative?
Where do we intertwine?

In this beautiful intricate universe,
Where we all collide,
I hope to find love,
Closer than the stars.

For those who wonder,
For those who gaze,
I hope you find,
Everything that is so vast,
So far…
Yet so simple, so close.

That is,
My perception of the universe.

 

Tainted Love

Tainted love,
I write to you from despair,
I write to you ,
Hoping these verses will make you clear.

I hope that if you listen,
You never faint,
And if you may still breathe,
I ask you to smell.

Oh tainted love!
So forgotten,
So far, yet so close.
The light is dim,
I hope your light never fades.

Tainted love,
Tell me how you are still alive,
After all we been through?

No matter where I be,
My love never fades,
Even if it seems so.

Tell me,
How many starry nights have you watched?
How many times,
In oblivion have you plunged?
How many times?

I hope you never fade,
Like these verses,
In my wake.

Guatemala es un Sueño

¿Como podría olvidarme yo de mi tierra?
Un sueño tan real
Cubierta de lagos y volcanes
Sus colores y flores.

Entre las estrellas de Panajachel,
Navegan mis sueños.
En las olas de Monterrico,
Se me fueron las penas
Y las noches bohemias
Me esperan en Antigua.

Sos un sueño
Tus calles parecen fantasía
Y tus historias de otro mundo.

Sos un regalo,
Mi primer amor
Y toda mi infancia.

Gracias
Por tantos cuentos e historias,
Por tanta imaginación.

To Travel

IMG_8323

Breathtaking skies,
Where I see the stars.
How far can I go?

Amongst a treacherous path
I’ve walked
One and a thousand times I’ve been lost.

Until I found myself,
Among the stars
And the stories told,
Across the bonfires.

With ardent passion,
I’ve loved
I’ve lust
And I’ve fallen off.

Among this earth,
I roam,
In different paths,
In different strides.
I seize my time
On this earth.

I’ve contemplated Keats,
Neruda and Thoreau.
It is time to write my own.

To see the world,
To examine life,
To live beyond the lines.

Oh, travel, oh travel!
You have taught me well.
