Somewhere in Providencia

Esta isla del tesoro perdida y olvidada en el inmenso océano es para ti

First Journey

-The first time it always hurts –

You said caressing my hair
Then you lay down next to me
We kissed
And all around became mist
Except you and me

In the middle of the dreamy haze
We saw our bodies asleep
Breathing rhythmic
Empty containers in suspension

I think I strongly held your hand
And we float like swallows
Around our nest
In the forgotten spring of the world

At our reach infinity
And that first time
We were not able
The farthest from the stars
The one on the edge of the universe
Where beyond there is nothing
Only eternity
That eternity that throbs inside
That flashes to the beat
From our heartbeats
So intense
So eternal

The return hurt
You were right
But embraced
In this empty alternative reality
We want to travel again
Where we are the only ones
Living beings of the universe

The only ones really alive


Under the shadow of the tree of the world

I took you by the hand and I took you running and laughing at the base of the tree of the world. Around us, the rest of the universe moved slowly and I only thought of melting our bodies under their gargantuan branches, without being disturbed by the tremors that took place below, deep down in the subsoil where the roots of Yggdrasil were devoured slowly but irremediably.

We did not care The Ragnarok would arrive soon and everything known would be ravaged by bloody battles and desolation, but as it was written in the stars, it would be you and me alone to repopulate the world from among the ashes.

And so, under the shadow of the tree of the world, we fucked without worry or rest until the sunset came and the very existence shuddered before the compasses of distant drums of war.

The final judgment had begun and I could only think of lying next to you for all eternity.
