beyond by Gema Moraleja Paz

Beyond

Life that you give me

life that’s exhausted

in a broken hope

that approaches the beyond

a night, two or more

thinking of the decision

that confuses my mind

and advances truth

 

for when you say yes

you are thinking no

and when calm returns

your head spinning

bedazzled in life’s midst

your heart throbs

thus restraining your soul

the questions of the most secure

or most lost life

you have sown calm

but in any farewell

there is always feeling

as in a raft of overflowing

water like a song

whose superposed words

are delighted and tranquil

awaiting the moment.

  1. Just beautiful. My favorite lines:

    your heart throbs

    thus restraining your soul
