Let me make this clear:
I know you don't believe
In this kind of love
I know you're about to leave, but...
I know that you don't accept it
Not in the sense that you deny it
You simply don't believe it
That a forbidden love could ever flourish
Let me make this clear.
You are the most ravishing circumstance
I've encountered in the middle
Of the desert of this life of mine
I simply refuse to let you go
But my respect for you is bigger than my pride
Bigger than my selfishness
But never bigger than my love for you
I always thought that destiny loved to sew
And whenever its threads get tangled
Circumstances, destiny, tends to happen
But, I, naïvely believed in that
I was mistaken.
Just as someone such as destiny
Is doing some hobby
He tends to make mistakes
He decides to untie the bad knots
And start again
It might be something insignificant for him
But for us, mere poetical mortals, is dreadful pain.
Let me tell you
That I am uncertain if this was a mistake
Committed by destiny, but for the time being
The time I spent looking at your tiger's eyes
The time I spent smiling at your smile
The time I spent caressing your body
The time I got lost within the gray murmurs
Of your soul
That, my beloved friend, was not a mistake
You were the fire that ignited my dead heart
You were the only light I could see in the
Middle of my darkness
You were for a moment mine
I believe that we are never tied to someone
Just as the red thread legend assures us
That thread is full of knots and dead ends
Or walls from which such thread goes through cracks
I assure you, my dear, if you ever leave...
I don't know... Will I follow you just to be near you?
You will not be mine, that is for sure
But it is you...
The one who lately has been giving life to many poems
When the touch of someone remains
As the trace of my hands on the sands of the beach
Of your skin, it is something impossible to get rid of
No wave, no wind, or time would eradicate such caress
Let me tell you as well:
That, even though life ain't that easy, you, specially you,
deserve the best to happen to you. You have given it all
And deserve to feel just as good as you have made others feel.
Just assure me one thing...
Never stop being my friend.
No matter how far you are
A piece of my heart goes with you...
I see you struggle to see something
but I believe you see it all
I believe you can see everything
where no one sees anything
I believe you’re able to bring poetry
where fire has only left ashes
I believe you’re able to bring beauty
where ugliness has scratched faces
I believe you have something deep within you
that no one else can see
however, you may feel you’re crazy
but crazy people are the best out there
Everyone is blind trying to see whiteness in the dark
when you’re able to see gray
you’re able to hold ying and yang in one hand
you’re able to see that there’s something out there
Deep within everyone there is something
that not everyday shows up
however, you bring it to the surface
with that magic of yours
You may think that this is madness
but there is something deep within yourself
something that brings innocence and mystery
something I cannot read
You’re an open book with no letters
you’re a pen with no ink
however, you’ve said everything a book has to read
and you’ve written everything a pen has to write
And in the end, please, believe me
that I believe you see it all
I believe you can see magic
where everybody else seems to see emptiness.
