I Am Orb / Soy Orbe

I am not the orb you collected,
drained and unlit in the sand.
Maybe you didn’t see that within
far beyond the ridge,
a voice dozed tranquil
with own light, lying inert
in a cryptic letter to you.

Today the shades have wings,
horizons, in short, a destination.
Today my life whitened without you,
beyond a fictitious abyss,
because I’m flesh and blood
And not the product of dreams.

I’ve always been, I am!
So too are my words,
long before your arrival
and you tried to mold me.

I felt cold when I turned into imagery
under the shadow of your icy pen
and became something whimsy
which lacks its own light.

Know well, dear luminaire
I do not hold grudges,
nor traces of the past
or dull visions of the future,
I hold only to my voice, my longings,
my writings, my heart, my soul.

I am orb and star of my universe…
Yo no soy el orbe que recogiste,
agotado y sin luz en la arena.
Tal vez no viste que adentro
mucho mas allá de la cresta
una voz dormitaba tranquila
con luz propia, yaciendo inerte
en una carta críptica para ti.

Hoy las sombras tienen alas,
horizontes, en fin, un destino.
Hoy mi vida emblanqueció sin ti,
mas allá de un abismo ficticio,
porque soy carne y sangre
y no producto de sueños.

Yo he sido siempre, Yo soy!
También lo son mis palabras,
mucho antes de tu llegada
y tratases de moldearme.

Sentí frio al volverme imágenes
bajo la sombra de tu lápiz gélido
y me convertí en una cosa banal
que carece de luz propia.

Sé bien, mi querida luminaria
que yo no guardo rencores,
ni en los trazos del pasado
o las visiones obtusas del futuro,
solo guardo mi voz, mi anhelos,
mis escritos, mi corazón, mi alma.

Soy Orbe y lucero de mi Universo…
