Me gustaría mirarte dormir,
algo que tal vez no suceda.
Me gustaría mirarte,
durmiendo. Me gustaría dormir
con vos, entrar
en tu sueño mientras su ola suave y oscura
resbala sobre mi cabeza
y caminar con vos por ese bosque
luminoso, oscilante, de hojas verdeazules
con su sol acuoso & sus tres lunas
hasta la cueva donde tenés que descender,
hasta el peor de tus miedos

me gustaría darte la rama
de plata, la pequeña flor blanca, la única
palabra que te va a proteger
del dolor en el centro
de tu sueño, desde el dolor
en el centro me gustaría seguirte
por la larga escalera
otra vez & transformarme
en la barca que cuidadosamente te traerá
de regreso, como una llama
entre dos manos juntas,
hasta donde tu cuerpo duerme
al lado mío, y cuando entres en él
con la facilidad de la respiración

Me gustaría ser el aire
que te habita sólo un
momento. Me gustaría ser así de anónima
& así de necesaria.


I would like to watch you sleeping,
which may not happen.
I would like to watch you,
sleeping. I would like to sleep
with you, to enter
your sleep as its smooth dark wave
slides over my head

and walk with you through that lucent
wavering forest of bluegreen leaves
with its watery sun & three moons
towards the cave where you must descend,
towards your worst fear

I would like to give you the silver
branch, the small white flower, the one
word that will protect you
from the grief at the center
of your dream, from the grief
at the center I would like to follow
you up the long stairway
again & become
the boat that would row you back
carefully, a flame
in two cupped hands
to where your body lies
beside me, and as you enter
it as easily as breathing in

I would like to be the air
that inhabits you for a moment
only. I would like to be that unnoticed
& that necessary.

  1. Una exquisitez!!!!

    Justo había escrito algo del aliento, de otro en el respirar propio, y el final de poemaque posteaste, coincide con el mío!!

  2. Sumamente tierno, ver dormir al amado...y el poema. Un abrazo.

  3. Opino lo mismo que el joven...
    "ser asi de anónima y asi de necesaria" HERMOSO.


  4. Impresionante, como siempre, tus textos.

    I аin't saying your content is not good., however suppose you added a title that grabbed folk's attention?
    I mеаn Ѕin título is kinda рlaіn.
    Үou οught tо glance at Yahoο's home page and see how they create article titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you've gоt tο saу.
    In my oрinion, it cоuld make your pοsts а little lіvelieг.
