What Is Love

Two things you need to be aware of; this poem has stanzas in both English and Spanish. Also, I have combined several lines from other poems and put them in my own poem. Some of the lines are from famous writers you may know other lines were found online (posted by anonymous people)

Let me talk to you with your silence,
Bright as a lamp,
Simple as a ring,
You are like the night,
Your silence is that of a star,
Remote and candid

Déjame que te hable también con tu silencio claro como una lámpara, simple como un anillo. Eres como la noche, callada y constelada. Tu silencio es de estrella, tan lejano y sencillo.

Never have I been this drunk,
From your kisses,
Our wet bodies wedged,
Laying on a boat made out of flowers,
Guided fingers,
Sky’s hot rim,
Day’s last breath,
In our sails,

Ebrio de trementina y largos besos,
estival, el velero de las rosas dirijo,
torcido hacia la muerte del delgado dia,
cimentado en el solido frenesi marino.

Palido y amarrado a mi agua devorante
cruzo en el agrio olor del clima descubierto,
aun vestido de gris y sonidos amargos,
y una cimera triste de abandonada espuma.

Slow down,
Have you ever just watched her undress?
Pick her up,
Sit her on your lap.

It’s not about making her scream,
It’s not about making her forget to breathe.

Let her ride.
Go deeper,

So deep inside of her,
I came from out of her thoughts,
My hands all over those flawless contours.
Escaping your cramped depths,
Rough roaming fingertips,

Fucked her so good,
Her thoughts no longer existed,
She started speaking in tongues.

Yo te he nombrado reina,
Hay más altas que tú, más altas,
Hay más puras que tú, más puras,
Hay más bellas que tú, hay más bellas,
Pero tú eres la reina,

Named you queen,
There are taller ones than you, taller,
There are purer ones than you, purer,
There are lovelier than you, lovelier,
But you are the queen,
