Emptiness transforms words
It melts them with bitterness
It seasons them with loneliness
and self pity.
It burns them to death,
Until the dust of what
once were words
Confused but free
they blend with the nowhere,
letting their pain be,
Resting in peace.
This thing… I have never done it before, so I don’t know how it’ll go.
I registered my blog on the NaPoWriMo (which is kind of cool) and my challenge is to write a poem per day during the month of April… well, yeah, I’m a bit nervous because this is the first time I’ll do something like this. I’m not sure that my poems are good enough but I need to try, so this time I will try harder to keep up the pace with this commitment with myself.
This is a great exercise as I’ve spent almost a year without writing (my last post was something I wrote on 2016), that’s why I’m so excited about doing this and even if I don’t get too many visits I don’t mind, I just want to prove myself that I can write and that I can do it right. Where am I going to get the inspiration from? What if I’m not in the mood? I don’t know, I’ll figure it out everyday.
As English is not my first language, you guys will read poems in English and in Spanish, so I hope you enjoy it.
Read them, be honest and write a comment.
Pd: Please don’t kill me.
Some sort of magic happens
when we find each other
in the ocean of the solitude.
I silently drown in your mouth
while the dust disappears in the wind,
and my voice becomes a hidden echo
that rumbles in the empty spaces of your soul.
Sometimes at night, I mischievously smile
cause I find you mysteriously enchanted
like an unexplored galaxy
like a distant star
like an impossible mountain.
You are that parallel reality I can’t live without
that secret life I’ll never share
and that happy ending I’ll never have.
Life is scary but as my friend Ned Stark said: “that’s the only time a man can be brave”. I will be brave…
