“I don’t think about you when I wake up: And other lies”

“I don’t think about you when I wake up: And other lies”

A Poem by Kaede16

I don't think about you when I wake up every morning.

Or when I rest my head on the pillow 

And I turn and turn without sleeping a wink.


I also don’t think about you when I pass by the kitchen,

Or when I make myself some coffee and feel it bruise my throat

(almost with the same strength of your fingers

When you shared- and caused, on occasion-  

My insomnias.)


Even less I think about you when I shower.

When the water caresses my naked skin,

Almost as cold as your hands.

Nor when my own, in their erotic wandering,

imagine your tongue dancing between my breasts.


But when I less think about you, is at work;

When in the middle of the busiest hour I write this poem,

About not thinking you

……………………………………………………..........................

“Ya no pienso en ti cuando me despierto en las mañanas: Y otras mentiras”


Ya no pienso en ti cuando me despierto en las mañanas.

Ni cuando pego la cabeza en la almohada y doy vueltas 

Y vueltas sin poder pegar un ojo.


Tampoco pienso en ti cuando paso por las cocina,

Ni cuando me hago café y siento que me abra(zs)a la garganta

[casi con la misma fuerza que lo hacían tus dedos

cuando compartías -y causabas, en ocasiones- 

Mis desvelos]


Mucho menos pienso en ti cuando entro a la ducha.

Ni cuando el agua me acaricia la piel desnuda

Casi tan fría como tus manos.

Ni cuando las mías propias, en su érotico desandar,

se imaginan tu lengua bailando en mis senos.


Pero donde menos pienso en ti, es en el trabajo;

Cuando en medio del atareamiento de los pacientes y las enfermeras,

Escribo este poema, sobre no pensarte.

The denial of your beautiful words speak volumes of the PASSION that boils just beneath the surface. I searched for the girl with such spirit for years, never having found her. I'm envious of the one whom you wish not to think about. Excellent writing, Kaede 16!

The first time I read this, I was in a rush! Y ahora me dí cuenta que lo escribistes en español tambien. Que pasión en las palabras,y que bonitas.
