Trauma

Casi no recuerdasel rastro de su cuerpoy sin embargo te pesansus palabrascomo el eco de un aludque se aproxima.

No existes, no eres nada,no imagines amordonde sólo hay sombras.

Eres la carretera secundariael desvío de un día sin prisaspara alguien que juegaa cambiar de destinopero lleva una brújulay siempre vuelve a casa. [End Page 98]

Trauma

You almost forgotthe scent of his body,but his wordsstill weigh on youlike the echo of an avalanchecoming closer.

You don't exist, you're nothing,don't imagine lovein a place of shadows.

You're the secondary roadthe detour for an unhurried dayfor someone who playsdice with fatebut brings a compassand always goes home. [End Page 99]
