"When I’m in New York, 
I just want to walk down the street and feel this thing,
like I'm in a movie."

-Ryan Adams

 

She brought me Here and Now: filled my pockets, over-the-brim, with Vim and Desire, forged the blueprints for my Sins, unwound my Salvation -- leaving my body exposed with the quiet words that breathe Faith into broken lungs…

She opened my Eyes: waltzed with the alchemy of my tongue’s Fear, clothed my wounds with Light, set arson to my Prerogatives -- bringing-out the Dead from its Delirium…

She stood and felt my Worth: weaved my Narrative with the Image of the Invisible, raised an Empire from the ashes of my Hope, weathered the storm from my Demons -- purging­-me-off the marriage plot: how does the Angel (in me) contend with the Devil (in you)? 

-

Ella me trajo aquí y ahora: llenó mis bolsillos, hasta el borde, de Vigor y Deseo, forjó los planos de mis Pecados, desovilló mi Salvación -- dejando mi cuerpo expuesto con palabras inaudibles que respiran Fe en pulmones rotos…

Ella me abrió los ojos: bailó con la alquimia de mi lengua desenfrenada, vistió mis heridas con Luz, encendió en llamas mis Prerrogativas -- sacando-a-relucir los muertos de su Delirio…

Ella se levantó y sintió mi Valor: tejió mi Narrativa con la Imagen del Invisible, encumbró un Imperio de las cenizas de mi Esperanza, curtió la tormenta de mis Demonios -- purgándome del trama nupcial:  ¿cómo el Ángel (en mi) contiende con el Diablo (en ti)?
