The ideal love


I traveled the world

and wore my eyes out

looking for you,

asking the sun

not to set

so I could have more time

and the moon not to sink

so I could keep dreaming of you

and you were here,

right around the corner from home.



Mosaic of love


There isn’t a single part

of your body

that I don’t love,

just like the sea

loves its deepest gorges,

the mountain

its smallest rocks

and the river

its most hidden inlets.

And if you ask me

what I love most about you,

I would tell you

to ask the sun

to name its most beautiful sunset.





I learned to walk

on glass floors,

to weigh words

as though they were gold,

to listen to the tiniest sounds

of the hearts of those

who talked to me

but I still haven't learned to fly

as feathers do.
