Una Cuestión de la Pasión

It is a question of passion
that brings sleeplessness in the night,
balancing this complacency,
weighing her darkness against light.

Una cuestión que no se reclinará

A matter that will never rest,
haunting every breath you draw,
a ragged catch seizes your throat,
marking moments with tiny flaws.

Pensamientos de cuál usted falta

Daydreams of what you are missing
plague and discolor the skyline;
she lives there, while you are lost here -
distance is the deciding line.

Pero, usted circunda en otro

Still, you circle one another
even though this is meant to be,
spiraling higher into loss
fog over sea, fog over sea.

Wow, Corinne, that is beautiful.  I feel it.  The weaving of Spanish into the poem makes it even more potent.  "a ragged catch seizes your throat"  That really caught me.  Also, I like how the rhyme scheme was soft, and it didn't disrupt the flow of my reading, even though I felt the rhyme.  Very well done!

I would ditto the squirrel.  Very cool poem.  It was between this and the second verse.  All of it, I loved.

Usted habla espanol
Usted habla ingles
Usted habla la lengua del amor
Usted habla la lengua de la pasion
Usted es un individuo peligroso
