Love Phoenix / Fénix del amor

Sometimes love slips
without finding fire and pales
combative and prisoner
of doubt and suspicion.

Love falls audacious
as an idol of chance,
scathing brief illusion
as tremor in the sea.

So your body just melted
under the spell of the night,
unfinished sand castle
on the edge of oblivion,

Into sad and dry lips
surfing the waves of the past
Laggards to the fullness
eroding your memory

whereas the pain dies
extinct beneath the beat of your name
and the immortal self, reborn colorful
into a new outbreak of sun.

A veces el amor resbala
sin encontrar fuego y palidece
combativo y prisionero
de la duda y el recelo.

El amor cae audaz
como un ídolo del azar,
ilusión breve y mordaz
cual temblor sobre la mar.

Así se deshizo tu cuerpo
bajo el hechizo de la noche,
castillo de arena inconcluso
en el borde del olvido,

En labios tristes y resecos
navegando las olas del pasado
rezagadas de la plenitud
erosionando tu memoria,

mientras muere el dolor
bajo el latido extinto de tu nombre
y el Yo inmortal, renace colorido
en un nuevo brote de sol.
