Leather winged bats fly above the deck

as I exercise, facing east, facing

the rising sun which fulfilled

its promise to return.

I look up to a tree where yesterday

a crow sized woodpecker gave

a call like a tropical bird,

drilled the trunk for carpenter ants.

The forest is fra...

My restlessness finds peace,

When I catch a glimpse of your face.

My craziness finds peace,

When I hear your voice.

If I hear a mention of your name,

Tears of love start flowing from my eyes.

My loneliness finds a guiding light,

When I catch a glimpse of your face.

When I hear...

Somewhere there is a place

A world where we'll be together

Where it's only me and you, only us

A place where you kiss my lips and we talk about us

Where the land and sky and everything is only yours

I don’t know if there is any place where,

My life isn’t upset.

My breath is l...

Burning inside my heart is a spark of desire,

Just for you

Why do we have to live away from each other?

Our souls are one, and the world sees us as strangers?

World is cruel, cruel are its people.

Burning inside my heart is a spark of desire,

Just for you

We paused a few step...

Chiqui, look, there's no more distance between us

I'm here, I'm here, I'm here…

No matter whatever troubles, problems you face

I'm here, I'm here, I'm here…

You are the secret I don't want to hide

I don't want to live my life in regret

I don’t want to us to be just a story

In...

I will still be loving you...

Maybe something happens, and you don't remain you,

Maybe something happens, and I don't remain me.

Maybe our paths diverge,

and we get lost while walking.

I'll still love you.

You taught me to laugh, you taught me to love.

My days and nights are...

Between the hills of this city

the wind gathers like a symphony

low brass in the cracks

of brownstones     trill

along window sills     the soft

snare roll of loose leaves

street side a tree

                          fractures...

Whether I exist or not,

You keep living within me

Keep visiting me in dreams

That’s all I want to tell you.

If the sun-rays irritate you,

Know that it’s me.

If the raindrops bother you,

Know that I am the droplets.

Whether I speak or not,

Please keep listening to me.

Stay next t...

always the burnt palm always

the lashes plucked from lids

always the longing love always

the burrowing always

the waking hours        

fire      

knows no night

is fire made

in the sun’s image

or its reflection

is fire...

morning arrived unannounced

before the winedrops could dry

                    from blue pillows

little shivers in finger sockets

birds sing just once

          can’t we watch...
