Give me the light that long ago
you had for me.
Confer at least some mystery
upon what you haven't believed
Behave and don't be haunted by THE SAME

Let the others deal with The Impossible
Be yourself and kill them all
out of love or warmth
but kill them all (and let God sort them out)
Then tell it to me straight
in case I still stand you by then.


And now, where do I fit this august,
its charmless hours, its goodbyes
and its devoid streets.
Where do I hide these broken caresses
and that same light whising to appear?

Three unpublished poems written, originally, in English:

This is the time, my party,
and you don’t want to know it,

But it is. I am…
Within something especial,
without you.
More or less, you know.
This is life, or not;
always yours.

THIS 2 are 1, in fact
This is so amazing,
honey, and, now,
please: leave the room.
I don’t want to hear about you.
Never more, as said Poe
in the past,
back to the past,
I beg you, yes, another time.

In these labyrinths we breathe:
is the eternal return or recurrence,
Nietzsche knew it better than you and me.

Alicia G.
