Marianne Soher

(20 June 1933 / Sofia, Bulgaria)

Ayer, cuando estabas solo.........

Ayer, cuanto estabas solo,
Inaccesible a mi lado,
¿Dónde estabas tú, mi vida?
¿Dónde estabas tu, mi amor?

Un rayo de sol dichoso
Acariciaba tus rizos,
Tus rizos inalcanzables
Como tu misma presencia.

Tus labios me sonreían,
Y tus ojos me rozaban.
...tan frío el gris de tus ojos...
...indiferentes tus labios...

Ayer, cuando estabas solo,
Tan silenciosas tus manos,
¿Dónde estabas tú, mi vida?
¿Dónde estabas tu, mi amor?

Y mis dedos extendidos
En el sopor de la tarde,
Sedientos de tu destello
Y vacíos de tu mano

Buscaban donde posarse
Sobre tu pecho vacío,
Mariposas moribundas
Y huérfanas de tu flor.

Ayer cuando estabas solo,
Con tu cuerpo junto al mío,
¿Dónde estabas tú, mi vida?
¿Dónde estabas tu, mi amor?

Cayó la tarde y tus ojos
Me devolvieron su estrella,
Y tus manos hambrientas
Dieron vidas a mi piel.

Y tus huellas en la sombra
Se cruzaron con mis huellas
Y tus labios susurrantes
Me devolvieron mi nombre.

Pero cuando estabas solo,
Tan ausente de mi nido,
¿Dónde estabas tú, mi vida?
¿Dónde estabas tu, mi amor?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
