Poem… Angel & Mermaid

Angel & Mermaid

(translation|modification of Ángel y Sirena)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Angel & Mermaid with beautiful eyes and severe gaze
Figure that makes my glance gentle
Every day, I remember that I shouldn’t;
but my soul remains tied to your silhouette.

Dark hair that seduces without speaking
Pearl skin on the body of a mermaid
Anyone would give their life to kiss
the beautiful mermaid with a queen’s name.

Sweet tiny waist that tempts my hands
Slender legs that hypnotize in madness
The sun of desire with honey warms
the passion that in me has lost its sanity.

Your slightly parted lips mark the entrance
to your soul and coffer of pleasure.
Your crystalline eyes sing the ballad
that reveals you and all you can be.

Mermaid & Angel, stay in your solemn trance.
Deliver yourself into my arms;
and thus, your skin’s sweet enlace
as we seal our fate with a kiss.

To Bed Without Gothic Jill

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Sea green bluish eyes…
piercing through the bedroom window
dazed by the sea of empty glass
penetrating the darkness of the cold night sky.

Sea green bluish eyes…
anxiously expectant
catching glimpses of gothic ghosts
wishing they were the sunrise amber of glowing embers.

Embers burning in midtown…
Slowly drowning in the haze enveloped swamps…
Drowning embers…
Taking with them these sea green bluish eyes
into the sea of broken glass
shattered by the cold, dark winter’s night.

Jill’s Ghostly Gothic Eyes

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Bright gray ghostly eyes
draped in black, proclaiming
over frightful midnight skies
my chronicle of a beautiful haunting.

Do you feel me tremble
with horrid lustful love?
Can you feel me tumble
like a panic flustered dove?

Do you watch and haunt me
–Bright Grays– into nightly terrors?
Do you spook me from the naked tree
with shadows casting horrors?

My Gothic Jill

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Your eyes cast shadows
over desolate lands
of lifeless sorrows
where I’ve made my stands.

Jet-black strands
of hair radiate the morrow.
Deep, dark eyes and pale of hands
fill my soul’s deep hollow.

Your naked back on the canvas stand
and cadent brush with tips of hair
paint my lustful wetlands
shaking with tremors left to bear.

Gothic Jill

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Sway in my presence
through darkened gloom.
Distress my senses
with your porcelain skin,
detailed with shadows of black lipstick
and tar-lined eyes.
Touch my lips with yours,
framed with shadowed borders.
The contrast of pale and darkness
flirts your noble depravity.
Princess of Darkness:
arouse my spirit
drape me in jet-black hair
darken my soul at dusk.
