Poem… Death, Fall Upon My Tamed Face

Death, Fall Upon My Tamed Face

(translation|modification of Muerte, Cae Sobre Mi Domada Frente)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Death, fall upon my tamed face.
Bring night’s darkness to my eyes;
and while they can still open and close,
bring me to my knees.

Death, fall and destroy my unmoving heart,
whose irrational affection for another body
mocks its own placid passion
and feeds its ardent-sanguine-obstinate chi.

Silence my mortuary tears.
Proclaim for me an unstable life
that’s tortured by never-ending days
–a pernicious fortune badly suffered.

Take me on your weeping clouds
to the dark and gloomy world
without souls, without lives,
where the path to heaven is tenebrous.

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.

…Distress my senses
with your porcelain skin,
detailed with shadows of black lipstick
and tar-lined eyes…

 

…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.
