im going to close your eyes.
im going to tell you everything.

you must learn to forget me with strength
because my heart in invincible.

when the night leaves the stars behind
and abandons the dry fields
the lights always offer to burn me-
it was all they ever knew.

they know less and less each day.

and as the black eyes gulp my glances
with his immobile idolatry
my teeth became shards of glass
breaking with every phrase
released in my mind.

and like the innocence before you
i must open my life again
and eat my sufferings.

i am the one that fabricates your dreams,
and in the morning
negates the lights.

now my love is like a chain of fish hooks
dragging ripping scarring
my heart to the surfaces.

like the screaming grasp of a king crab
like the coldest fire of the summer.

so dont look at me with dry eyes

lets exhaust ourselves of what kills
and of what doesnt want to exist.
