haciendo hogar

June 20, 2010

quiero perderme en ti.

sin mapas…
descubrir lo que aun en ti, no se ha descubierto.

dejarme llevar por la brújula de este amor
que es nuestro norte.
plantar bandera en tu ombligo.
y llamarte mía.

pero no mía en posesión,
pues tu te perteneces entera.

pero mía en admiración…
llamarte mía en amor.
decirte que te entrego todo de mi,
por tan solo poder hacer mi hogar en la tierra de tu corazón.

eos’ dawn

June 12, 2010

tell me where your dreams sleep,
this sweet insomnia has me
daydreaming past midnight.

waiting for morning to break

holds your breathing
at the edge of the ocean.
i watch the sunrise
between your breasts.

i take the morning
dew from your lips,
to sweeten my coffee.

a new day has dawned
in the morning song
of your love.

Notes: Eos is, in Greek Mythology, the Titan Goddess of the dawn.
This piece was inspired by a poem from a fellow poet friend Frank Ulloa.

my prayer

June 11, 2010

i pray god forgives me
for i have sinned.

this internal religious war
has me burning bibles
and sacrificing jesus’.

i pray for those who pray hatred
on knees bent and body bowed.
asking god to change
sinners like me
into saint devils like them.

using scripture as a double edged sword
to stab my heart and pierce my spirit.
preaching from ecclesiastical altars,
perfumed with wilted white roses
that remind me of the dead.

saint devils enslaved to words
on a book
lost in translations.
blasphemous words uttered
condeming the creation of god:

me. as i am.

but their words fall on deaf ears.
the psalm of my prayer
will be sung.

love cannot be rebuked.
