Efímero

 

 

It was a dream

Or let’s say,

It was just an extreme

 

It was a spark of light

When her soul had already died

 

Two worlds suddenly met

Who didn’t know their beauty yet

 

“En la variedad está el placer”

Was his comment to her

 

He didn’t know what he revived in her

The beauty and the mystery of anything rare

 

She allowed him to interrupt her solitude

Only she was afraid of the incertitude

 

To enter that world,

He should have been a real believer

Not in religion, but in something even deeper

 

In the 1% chance

In the magic of the last dance

And in the intellectual transcendent romance

 

He should have been careful

To add more dreams to something extremely dreamful

 

Unfortunately,

That magic only lasted for a while

It faded with silence and a big smile

And left her heart again more fragile

 

But as Neruda said:

“Es tan corto el amor, y es tan largo el olvido”
