From the stars
On mascara clouds
Of night, blown by a sudden wind:
From the city's pavement the skies cosmetic drowns in light

From the heart's cradle another Icarus long for flight
And cannot shed the weight of dreams
In the porous light
Leaking time

Brings back
Love's cadence
Moonscape memories
Flocking upon the soul's hunger
I am eaten by dreams from the web of carnal desires

Will you again hold my hand and make your breast beat like waves
In the conch shell lip of my ear
This milk is curdled
Now on time
I weep

Then hopes
Where dreams dare 
Remain like feathers 
From a broken wing. Life like ice
In tropic seas forever melts ... the only truth is space
