Three Love Poems

by Marie-Luise Coroza Calvero (Poetry)

Tienes el alma más hermosa que he conocido.
Nunca había sentido que un alma pudiera conmoverme —
tan profundo que siento que el tiempo alrededor de mí podría detenerse,
y solo una única existencia podría despertar mi alma
y traer vida a mi ser.
Es tan profundo que no puedo describir más con palabaras:
solo con lágrimas y caricias;
con miradas amorosas
y besos suaves y apasionados;
con sonrisas tranquilas y con pensamientos mutuos —
pensamientos que no decimos en voz alta,
sino solo sentimos.

You have the most beautiful soul I have ever known.
I had never felt that a soul could move me —
So deep that I feel that time around me could stop,
and that only a single existence could awaken my soul,
and bring life to my being.
So deep that I cannot describe more with words:
only with tears and caresses;
with loving looks
and soft and passionate kisses;
with quiet smiles and mutual thoughts —
thoughts that we do not say out loud,
but only feel.

Like Lost Words

Bittersweet silence fills
Lonely spaces.

I
speak.

Your eyes
are like lost words.

Crystal–your voice
–Like the toll of bells.

We left
this space.

*

Orientis

Trapped in grey constellations
Of love without a sound.
Feeling walls where there are no walls
to rest my weary self.

Floating in silent space
Catching glimpses of light
From threads of stars
Softly weaving your face.
