Poem… Among Stars

Among Stars

(translation|modification of Entre Estrellas)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Among stars,
the most distant –you.
Among loves,
the strongest –for you.
We fused two stars
to make a Bright Star:
Brilliant, beautiful
and secure.
The universe –life–
presents forces,
forces of punishment,
forces that influence,
influences that make
the strongest cry
by vanquishing the heart.
I fear what follows:
becoming a lone star again.
This fear mortifies my splendor.
I’m divided and left without you.
Every night, I cry out to the sun:
Hoping these forces weaken
while I become strong.
