(Karla Adriana C.) - Tercer lugar
There lies the poet
with nothing but his mind,
there comes the love,
to take him into the deep seas of his soul
and there comes the women
who will turn his world upside down,
as they sail, through the oceans
of what their love becomes
the bittersweet storm
that we all once swim.
So the poet lies
to himself and to faith
for a taste
of the bittersweet wine of her esence,
and he takes what does not belong to his life
but to the world,
she, the lovely one.
After all that's done,
after all that's broken,
the poet is left
with nothing but the wish
of what he craves the most,
the lovely one.
It all begins with a tale of wondrous emotions veiled within you and me
which bonded us together as I always thought it would be.
I, who stood lonely in the restless planet we live in,
had never expected an angel such as you to come from heaven just for me.
It was magical, I must say, a true blessing of hope and fate
which filled my heart purely with dreams
and stunning happiness that wrapped inside me.
Even with the fall of dusk, your brightness sheds me light
and will everlasting bestow love and chilling warmth.
It must be you, who came from above the sky
to bestow blitheness with your angelical voice
to every human who dared to cross your blissful path
and every unfortunate soul who felt your lovely wrath.
I freely gave my heart to an angel so pristine and pure
which endearingly bewitched me with love and joy
and left me sick and defenseless with no sign of a cure,
happy, yet anxious to be more than a boy.
So I now say all these things I feel for you
just represent the beginning of an unending chronicle
which will be signal of our true bond
until the universe hears our love song.
When the last glimpse of daylight dies,
darkness grows reaching every house,
nocturnal sounds filled the air,
as tree frogs and crickets roam the Earth.
The awaited night has arrived at last,
eternal confidant of late meetings,
guardian of secrets and lively dreams,
hearts devoting their love while other one's sleep,
leaving no place untouched by her magic,
while young lovers wait for their encounter,
they craved their names over a maple tree,
and kiss each other gently on the lips.
She was pressed against his chest deep into his arms,
her heart beating so loud,
afraid of being caught.
Finally he whispered those sweet words,
so soft that no one else heard,
a sincere smile was drawn on her face,
as they gently broke their embrace.
Night silently watched
always present in countless times,
witness of joy and life,
as long as two lovers meet,
under her starry black sky.
