I saw you and I soon wanted you.
Like a sucking hummingbird
Your stream, I celebrated
Love riding
In a pity
From myself
In the Inner Unit
From the improper saying
Between entail and graces
We laugh at each other
Only you put me up
Hugged after
Wrapped in a prayer
That we were looking for
Do what we want
The night encompassed
And you laugh at the sun
The charm of your being
You rolled like a sunflower
To me, to reap you.



Bondage

Slaving is living
When everything erupts from you
Sunshine that makes us see
Time that does not corrupt

Prayers hallelujah sing
To the creation of your being
In sharpening spells
The treats of seeing you

In a dream journey landed
Boil the warm nights
And it is transfigured there
That the hours are valid.

Lumen ardere

The feeling prevails where lack of lucidity
In the interpretation of the symbolic
That surpasses us in tasty acidity
In a melancholic and urban trance

Sound characters can be seen
Between plasma decompositions
The hertzian curvature of the carbons
Juxtaposes annoying cognitions

And it is said in passing here present
In the skewed prism that links
We seek within us the fiery
Daring moment that sets us on fire
