My soul cries for you in the distance / Mi alma a la distancia te llama.

Poem from the book 'The Site / Poema del libro "El Sitio"

From the book The Site

 

My soul cries for you in the distance

 

My soul, beyond words,

Cries for you in the distance.

After the war

In our lives

Nothing will be the same,

Not the sky, or the stars,

Not dreams, or looks

      Or silence, or words,

Or nights, or mornings,

Or waiting, or absence,

Or presence, or hope,

Or kisses, or caresses,

Nor the man who waits,

Or the woman who lingers on,

Nor the scents of the skin,

Or the brushing of hands,

Or the book, or the poem.

Everything has somehow changed

... Not even I am the man I used to be!

Nothing is the same.

But if one day when arriving,

Should you find me in armour

Do not hesitate, strip me of it!

Or if my doors are closed

Knock till they open!

Or if you see me building walls,

Talk to me, pull them down!

Or if you see me looking away,

Do not heed the course of my gaze!

Your presence will suffice, so that one by one,

My defences will crumble before you.

They were not built for you!

They were only erected to shield my soul,

And heal its wounds,

At the cost of isolation.

Like a warrior, guarding his weapons,

At times I alone... and my sword remain,

Awaiting that new dawn

When in our lives

There will be no more fighting.

My soul, beyond words,

Cries for you in the distance,

Though it sometimes feels

That waiting is important no more.

My love is comforted

By your memory and my hope

Because this shall not be, regardless war

Or distance,

My last poem for you

Nor shall I stop thinking of you, every morning.

Del libro El Sitio

 

Mi alma a la distancia te llama.

 

Mi alma, pese a las palabras,

a la distancia te llama.

Después de la guerra

en nuestras vidas

ya nada será igual,

ni el cielo, ni las estrellas,

ni los sueños, ni las miradas,

ni los silencios, ni las palabras,

ni las noches, ni las mañanas,

ni la espera, ni la ausencia,

ni la presencia, ni la esperanza,

ni los besos, ni las caricias,

ni el hombre que espera,

ni la mujer que aguarda,

ni de la piel las fragancias,

ni de las manos el rozar,

ni el libro, ni el poema.

Todo ha cambiado, de alguna manera

… ¡¡ni yo soy el que antes era!!.

Ya nada es igual.

Pero si un día al llegar

me encuentras con mis corazas,

no lo dudes, ¡¡arráncamelas!!,

o ves mis puertas cerradas,

¡¡golpéalas hasta que abran!!,

o me vez construyendo murallas,

¡¡háblame, derríbalas!!

o me ves mirando a la distancia,

¡¡que no te importe la dirección de mi mirada!!

Tu presencia  bastará, para que una a una

mis defensas ante ti caigan.

¡¡Que no han sido por ti construidas!!,

sólo pretenden resguardar mi alma,

curando sus heridas,

aunque ello implique aislarla.

Como guerrero, que protege sus armas,

por momentos solos quedamos yo … y mi espada,

esperando ese nuevo día

en que en nuestras vidas

se terminen las batallas.

Mi alma, pese a las palabras,

a la distancia te llama,

aunque  por momentos sienta

que la espera ya no tiene importancia.

A mi amor lo consuela

tu recuerdo y la esperanza

porque este no será, pese a la guerra

y a la distancia,

ni el ultimo poema que te escriba

ni el dejar de pensar en ti, cada mañana.
