Rocio Iglesias

you will never have to be alone


Before you I was alone like a tunnel, but I didn’t know it

Birds fled from me and I believed there was a magic in my dying slowly

Then in the dark night while the wind disentangled itself from my body

I saw your eyes like constellations, playful but honest and unchanging

A silver gull slipped down from the east

My angel


My angel

I will carry you like an arrow in my bow, a stone in my sling

I will clasp you in my arms like a moonflower vine

I will be delicate because I know your heart is a paper crane and my hands are made of fire

And more than anything else, I will love you

My half of the moon,

White fire lily

Forge of blue metals

Cross over my heart and never let me go
