I love you....
I said it to you with the wind
playing like a puppy in the sand,
or furious as a tempestuous organ.
I said it to you with the sun
that tans young naked bodies
and smiles at all innocent things.
I said it to you with the clouds,
melancholic facades holding
up the sky, runaway sadness.
I said itto you with plants,
delicate sheer beings that cover
themselves in sudden blush.
I said it to you with water,
luminous life watching
a dark bottom.
I said it to you with fear,
Isaid it to you with happiness,
with the worst words.
However, it is not enough for me:
I want to say it toyou with death.
I want to say it to you with oblivion.
