I like for you to be still



I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent,
and you hear me from far away and my voice does not touch you.
It seems as though your eyes had flown away
and it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth.


As all things are filled with my soul
you emerge from the things, filled with my soul.
You are like my soul, a butterfly of dream,
and you are like the word Melancholy.


I like for you to be still, and you seem far away.
It sounds as though you were lamenting, a butterfly cooing like a dove.
And you hear me from far away, and my voice does not reach you:
Let me come to be still in your silence.


And let me talk to you with your silence
that is bright as a lamp, simple as a ring.
You are like the night, with its stillness and constellations.
Your silence is that of a star, as remote and candid.


I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent,
distant and full of sorrow as though you had died.
One word then, one smile, is enough.
And I am happy, happy that it’s not true.

  2. Hay tanto amor en mi alma que no queda
    ni el rincón más estrecho para el odio.
    ¿Dónde quieres que ponga los rencores
    que tus vilezas engendrar podrían?

    Impasible no soy: todo lo siento,
    lo sufro todo...Pero como el niño
    a quien hacen llorar, en cuanto mira
    un juguete delante de sus ojos
    se consuela, sonríe,
    y las ávidas manos
    tiende hacia él sin recordar la pena,
    así yo, ante el divino panorama
    de mi idea, ante lo inenarrable
    de mi amor infinito,
    no siento ni el maligno alfilerazo
    ni la cruel afilada
    ironía, ni escucho la sarcástica
    risa. Todo lo olvido,
    porque soy sólo corazón, soy ojos
    no más, para asomarme a la ventana
    y ver pasar el inefable Ensueño,
    vestido de violeta,
    y con toda la luz de la mañana,
    de sus ojos divinos en la quieta
    limpidez de la fontana...
