Look at me.

Don´t take away your eyes from me

In my steps run the history of millions of me

On my back I carry a sack of dead poets

But don´t look at my mouth.

I could spit flower-beauty poison

Don´t look at my hand either.

They have bloody-sealed dammed words

Look at my eyes if you wish in the intense summer,

you wish to die of cold

If in the roar of life, they wish to remain silent.

The shadow of a raven hangs around my nights

Unable to pronounce the cruel sentence.

The wild beasts hide their teeth

and take a feeble sleep at my feet.

Telluric birds crown me

Among bay leave arches and rum barrels

I have loved few women but I have had many

They have shaken with fire and succumbed to tact

They have surrendered at the edge of a pray

Just a whisper could melt the titanium on the chest

Just some eyes make my hell: wings,

Just a mouth makes my knees fold

And make of me,

A lost child in the wood

Only a shadow in the forest,

Just a shadow …

Just a name…



At The End Of The Day


Get out, chest voices

Break the cell!

My common sense will not stop you.

Hold well the hair of the wind

Sharpen the spikes and horseback ride far away

Also take my sorrows

Tie them to stones

and let the bottom of the river

accept them

Stop being silence

Do not accept a whisper

Be a shout, an echo, an avalanche

Be thunder and cannon

Break the cuffs!

No crowd can silence you

There will always be kisses and whispers

And songs of sirens

Do not stop in front of them

At the end of the day

When death opens her arms and my bones are burned

Only my poems will remain..

I leave them to you

Take them with you

Be my will.

We will see each other face in a thousand years

And..that re encounter should not be in forgetfulness.
