Your eyes
makes me light
and it’s like a rustling in the flesh
the silence that asks for listening.
You hugged me
like the wind makes no noise
and I stretched out my veins
until they become the echo
of a love that does not end
but that is emptied and filled
every time the sky
he wants to become sea.


There are silences only ours
and there is the sacred glow of the sun
that unites us like waves moved by the wind.
Nothing about you escapes me
while watching the seasons change
while I try to defend myself from the past.
Just thinking about what we are
I open the doors of my eyelashes
where I see a light that looks like you.


You go from a silence to a look
and I feel the same oxygen.
I would like to find you in the middle of my days
in a world
that catches us unprepared
to look at ourselves in love in the same light.
