Oh sweet poison that hides behind that mysterious mask
you sweetly and slowly kill me
and with sensual, delicious, heavenly words
to life you slowly bring me back.
You make my heart die a thousand deaths
and with just one smile of yours
you make it beat again with your life giving breath.
Your eyes hypnotize me
they seduce me, they make me blush
Oh my sweet poison of pure ecstasy
you will kill me, with just one kiss, just one touch.
If you are death
then a thousand deaths I will accept
I’ll let my life from this world be torn
but you are also life
for because of you I will also be reborn.
Your sensual mouth makes me go insane
to a bottomless pit of sweet nothings
I start to sink
To stop from drinking is all in vain
for sweet nectars I will drink
for all eternity.
Yes, for you many times I died
and for you I was born again.
I will never tire of your spell casting potion
I will always be drunk with that intoxicating brew
My luscious lover, I’ll be yours forever,
for that sweet, heavenly poison is you.
This is one of my old pieces which I translated from Spanish to English. I just saw a piece of my cousin Isa Rodriguez and it reminded me of this poem. You can look it up in Isa Rodriguez and hopefully I will give you the link for her piece later on.
