SHIPWRECKS IN RED
To:  my beloved angel

Red murmur
inquires - resigns
postponed silences
on  the sounds
of your soul.

Red suggestion
of blacked venules
tempest - stilled
liquids trees;
bleed their roots
on shipwrecks of words
and autumn leaves.
Will be carbuncle the  love?

Water night
pigmented scarlet,
foam gales
on the edge
raspberry and mint
defining your shadow;



Converges
on moon´s reef
incandescent light snow
pouring
on the tremulous
ruby from your lips.

ONLY LOVE WILL PREVAIL
To my Darling: M.B. with love.
               
Only love will prevail
When there is nothing left,
When memory  fades away
As scattered dust
On the wind.

Only my words will speak
Of this love
leaving a footprint
In silence,
To posterity…
For other times.
When my simple name
Be erased over time
And the words remain
over withered leaves.

Only my love for you will prevail
In your skin of verse,
In your skin of rhyme,
On your prose skin ...
Forever and beyond
the eternity borders.

INSIGHTS

Taciturn I roam
in the sterile
fury of delirium,
carry my words
as single luggage.

Behind me…
Drive my inconclusive
dreams, pain,
blind nostalgia.
Diluting rain
concentrating
my footsteps.

The wind recounts
it´s story.
I wait for
the glaring spikes
on diaphanous voices,
coated with infinity.
