Wounds of Love

Spanish literature, poetry

full text, translation into English

 

 

 

This light, this flame that devours, 

this grey country that surrounds me,

this pain from a sole idea,

this anguish of the sky, earth and hour;

 

this lament of blood that now adorns

a lyre with no pulse, lubricious torch,

this weight of sea that breaks on me,

this scorpion that lives inside my breast,

 

are a garland of love, bed of the wounded,

where dreamlessly, I dream of your presence

among the ruins of my sunken breast.

 

And though I seek the summit of discretion

your heart grants me a valley stretched below,

with hemlock and bitter wisdom’s passion.
