Safe – a poem

In your arms, I can breathe. To your touch, I can sleep. Your words put an end to my anxiety. In your world, I can live. To your beat, I can dance. To your tunes, I can sing. Looking at you is like staring blank at the sea. You're immense! In your waters I can swim....

Unconditional love – a poem

Love me when there's nothing to love: when the hair has thinned, when the thin is gone. Love me when it's inconvenient: when you can't see me, or count on me. Love me when you get nothing in return: not the comfort of company, nor the passion of intimacy. Love me when...

The haunting – a poem

Mourn the realization of loss as you dwell in the limbo of what could have been dreams of togetherness we could have had blurs of connection on another plane Standing by subconscious to observe the marks of regret in your eyes the pleads for understanding in your...

Good samaritan – a poem

I dreamed a dream that you were around avoiding the encounter with truth embracing the safety of dissatisfaction with someone else And I wonder what runs through your head and your heart this instant What you would say if I were a thing and could never talk back What...

What we know – a poem

What’s inside of you, I can only guess And my guess is foul plenty Who I am, you can only assume Hard to predict... there is no map You are a lake, calm and I thought your deep waters would make me drown And I am an ocean, turbulent and you thought my tide would throw...

Reach – a poem

My flesh has no skin, my wound no scab. And that subtle scratch you didn't make is making me bleed. You reach your hand across the table, the one that's wise. It cleanses the dirt and as it goes, it weaves me of compassion a new skin dressed in understanding, glowing...

Resignación – poema

Rondando por el blog "Recetas de Motivación Personal", me encontré con la entrevista del Chef Pablito con Alguien. Fui a su blog y me encontré con esta poesía, bella por cierta y como mi corazón hoy está un poco partío y comparto con él las ansias de que me abrace la...

Hay un país en el mundo – poema por Pedro Mir

Hay un país en el mundo colocado en el mismo trayecto del sol, oriundo de la noche. Colocado en un inverosímil archipiélago de azúcar y de alcohol. Sencillamente liviano, como un ala de murciélago apoyado en la brisa. Sencillamente claro, como el rastro del beso en...

Picnic – poema

Vamos caminando hacia un llano entre las montañas, en una tarde fresca. Llevemos una sábana para sentarnos; salmón ahumado, vino y queso crema. Empaquemos todo en las mochilas. Caminemos y hablemos de todo y nada. Llevemos un mini radio y descansemos; boca abajo y el...

El viejo y la pipa – poema

El Viejo y la Pipa Compré un traje para una fiesta a la que no fui invitado. Estoy esperando a alguien que no quedó en llegar. Sigo aquí, pelando pa' que otro chupe; amolando y siempre boto, queriendo y no pudiendo. Y no sé si querré ir a ese lugar de donde no llegan...

Lecciones de amor

Aprendí a mirarte sin ruidos; a apreciarte sin tenerte, a acariciarte sin manos, a hablarte sin voz. Aprendí a diseñar pensamientos lindos, programas avanzados que se desplazan hacia ti. Entendí que siempre estarás, y que está bien. Te limpié un cuarto en un rincón...

Te quiero bien – poema

Te quiero bien sin dudas, sin rencores sin celos, ni temores; ausente de pasiones, e inhundada en razones. A corazón lleno, como se quiere lo merecido, lo trabajado y lo ganado. Como el valor no codiciado, te quiero bien. Te entiendo como se absorbe lo estudiado, como...

Te soñé

Como si fuera ayer y nada hubiese pasado entre nosotros Como si la distancia fuera un fantasma de una pesadilla que nunca tuvimos Me sonreías con esos labios que tantas veces besé y de tus ojos emanaba paz y comprensión Me sentí en el cielo como solía después de hacer...

Of mantras and eternal love

I keep your letter; four pages of lengthy stream. Because anything worth saying is worth repeating. You said. I love you. I love you? I love you! Like a mantra, repeated over and over until it wills you into a trance. Like a bond; a fragile note reminiscent of...

Ode to impermanence

Sway to the bittersweet ballad of beautiful things coming to an end. The melancholy of joy intermixed with sorrow Parting from a presence that will never leave you Saying goodbye to yourself Move to the beat of impermanence, tears of joy in a static embrace. The...

Casita de pájaro

Cuando cesa la música solo queda el silencio. No es lo mismo tocar como tu, que ser tu. Los momentos perfectos no pueden replicarse. Es injusto medir el presente con cinta del pasado. Este traje no me sirve, pero es el único que tengo. O me lo pongo o me desnudo....

Bird house – a poem

When the music stops there's dreadful silence. Someone who sounds like you is not you. Blissful moments cannot be replicated. It's unfair to measure the present with yesterday's tape. This suit does not fit, but it's the only clothes I have. It's either this or being...

The word

Words are cheap, but invaluable when they speak of the abundance of the heart. Emotions are male, aggressive rapists impregnating the mind. Thoughts bud like daffodils early Spring. Some bloom, others perish with their essence inside. But the mind is always pregnant,...

Losing you

  Missing you is hearing your drums when I play my guitar. It's picturing curls as I drive in my car. It's grasping for air. It's batting the wind. Having you is sweetly fictitious for truth is a bummer; as actual as Olaf  in the dead of summer. It is fleeting....

Becoming

I have poetry in my heart from the beauty I've seen, from the lives I've lived, from the loves I've loved. I've got waves of wonder pouring out of my heart, with stretches of blue,white and gold sand. I've got serenity in sea... the sound of movement, deep breaths,...

The excuse

I'm not your love; the one who keeps you up at night staring at the ceiling. I'm the one you took for granted when you thought you could do better. Now you know that "better" is loving and being loved. I'm the one who talks back; who didn't compromise essence for...

Hindsight 20/20

  Had I known it would sting so much I wouldn't have ripped you off my heart. You are the never-healing sore that burns anew with every scratch. I would have taken you every place I went, had I known you would come anyway. You've traveled continents with me,...
