| Melancolía |
El maquillaje de la luna
asfixia la ternura
al saber que estás en otra cuna.

Murieron las lágrimas
y la flor
que encendía los labios
bajo el juramento
al anclar 
nuestros corazones
a un nuevo horizonte
cancelando las facturas
de despedida.

La carta escrita 
sin bata
fusilaba las gotas
de melancolía
al recordar que 
ya no eras mía.

|Melancholy|
The makeup of the moon
suffocates tenderness
to know that you are in another cradle.

The tears died
and the flower
that lit up the lips
under oath
at anchor 
our hearts
to a new horizon
canceling the invoices
of farewell.

The written letter 
without gown
shot the drops
melancholy
remembering that 
you were no longer mine.
