I'll dance naked for you
In the light of July's fire,
I'll burn everything around your body
The magic of our first moment,
I'll meet your fleeting look
And you'll feel the fire break in me.

Abandon yourself to my love game
And approach me slowly,
Caress my hot flames
Dissolve the melting ice,
Like a stream of pure water
Dried out of your tongues of fire.

Do not talk, do not talk about it.
My love, I will challenge the whole world
Interweaving my legs to yours,
Introducing in all my pores
Your smell and your sweet taste.

Between fire and ice
I will make you mine.
Between fire and ice,
Forever mine.


I need poetry,
Broken flesh,
Warm and long hugs
And innocent souls,
Lives against the wind,
True and living love
And wings to fly
Towards lands of fire
That will never be mine.

I need mirrors
To reflect my gold
Invisible to the world,
Which is self-contained.
My delusions: Icons
Shattered by the days,
Useless dreams of glass
Eradicated from me.

I need explosions,
Bites on my breasts
Splinters already sharp
In the bowels of my destiny.

I need love,
The love you gave me,
A few hours of passion,
Intense moments of eternity.


Paint me before the day comes
Before the light illuminates
My thin curves,
Destroying the magic
Of your nocturnal look,
Panting love and tremors
On my moon skin.

Draw melancholy
On your canvas,
Undress me with your velvety eyes
And destroy my heart in love.
I offer myself to you like a red cherry
Ready to receive your teeth.

Do not come closer to me,
I melt with your brush,
You kiss me while you give me light,
You talk to me with your pupils
And you love me while you give me colors.
You want me with your words
That feed, like looks,
My soul in jeopardy.

Sadness is not being able to love you.
