Dying Kiss

Poem By Harthman Carpio Munteanu

I tried to see -of all the things I...
longed to understand of you,
And my mistake was to absorb just in the way you wanted to-
The answers to the question “Why? ”,
the everlastingly unknown,
The darkened face of what we are
and what we think that we have shown.
Behind the curtains…
there are masks you put on and you try to play,
But in the end I realized the game’s the oldest fashion way
In which we do our tricks, our deals;
our only shield and shelter, too
And bounding acts together is exactly what we have to do.
I’m not accusing you of change,
I’m not accusing myself either,
‘Cause that’s the way we may be turning the taste of life a little bitter, We do have though the obligation
or we’re responsible of this:
You don’t let anyone to love you
and feed you with its dying kiss…

A Little Ghost

I knew her for a little ghost
That in my soul have walked;
The walls were high - higher than most,
And the big gate was locked.


My precious one, to me so dearest, I so my love guide toward you
No ways I find to break the mist from which I say these words so true;
And even though I may seem shallow and poor in treasures of the mind,
I came here now and did I follow this ray of light that helped when blind...


I must confess to you my dearest
Bowing my head before your beauty,
Within the sight of your perfection
Nothing will ever stand up straight


And even though I looked at you
And past my hand upon your face
I never thought I could receive
This harsh from you and haste

Her Mood

Her mood

when she comes,
