Madness is in your name

You have abandoned me with
traces of fire,
every day my skin plays your music,
you are more than a
sound of lyrics,
In my ribs I carry you, like pearls
stuck on shells,
Iet me cover your deserted
soul with my vacant arms,
I shall not be sad like the lakes
and trees far away,
If I stop imagining you my heart
closes like a nocturnal flower,
Who hears your hymns
without you singing?
Madness is in your name,
The clouds over me are a net
of frozen words that never melt,
they constantly read me,
They are like the book of hymns,
with just serene music,
you are gone and you still run away.
Llamando mi nombre
someday you will repent,
and maybe every seed of desires
by then will be drifted,
Like smoke vanishing through air,
you will never know the rest,
as I sail the vast seas and you
stay on solid ground,
I will count the fishes in the ocean
giving them names
with your face on it.
