My desire is to drink


All the letters of your personal alphabet,


Remove from it the words and to rob from the


Zodiac your sign and


Occult them in my heart




Scatter to the wind my love


Emitting your feelings


To turn tangible the moment of


Touching your soul


Emotionally, uniting it to mine.




To me happiness would be,


Occasion in which the total love would be filling me,


Redeeming your will,


Remodeling your personality,


Enveloping in my heart your truths,


So you would be eternally mine.

Moths in the closets

destroying any past-

gnawing what's useless.
