Consequences 

I never felt more alive than after your death.
Your absence: black hole;
brutal,

infinite.
It taught me how ignorant I was about pain and its depths.

To you

My heart is restless, today it does not feel different

and gone is the thirst for fantasy but never the thirst to learn

I have been blessed from every angle you see me

I have been blessed with love and the absence of it.

 

Both in the same speech, in the same minute

for a second I almost believed the words, all of them

but words of love were louder, I like to think love is stronger

That it surpasses the ego, jumping and fooling us all.

 

Days of innocence, how much I long for them!

and somehow they always return, with a different face,

with the wish of love that will never fade, a wish of empathy,

a dream that is honest and kind.

 

The dream,

yes, the dream:

 

my accomplice and nobody else’s.

 

I am, indeed, selfish.

 

Perfection is not required,

I am not perfect.

Loyalty is mandatory,

but that is another story.

 

I cannot love the way others loved before,

it is not my way and where did they go?

But I am the wrong, they don’t deserve me.

I am The Wrong yet I know love.

 

I believe words will take you places

depending on the sound they make.

 

Do not listen to me,

I will make mistakes and I will not share the blame

and I will leave as I left back then,

when I was taught how wrong I am

 

and I am, indeed, selfish.

 

I have kept all memories,

reciting them at night,

as one who is praying:

the good and the bad

 

I will make mistakes for that’s who I am

and I will love you because one day I decided to love you,

no mistake in there, I hope you don’t mind.

 

My heart is restless, today it does not feel different

and gone is the thirst to know but never the thirst to learn

I have been blessed  every day of my life through my faults

I have been blessed with love and the absence of it

 

but I have loved you all,

always remember that.
