Pequeña Confesión

¿Si yo soy tu sueñopor qué me siento solacuando me sueñas?

Llego arrastrándomea tu boca cuando duermesy no sé cómo empezara contarte una historiaque se parezca a tipara que nunca sepasque yo vivo contigo.

Los sueños somoscomo las palabras,pertenecemos a un solo cuerpopero queremos serotra persona. [End Page 108]

Small Confession

If I'm your dream,why do I feel alonewhen you dream of me?

I come crawlingto your mouth when you sleep.I don't know how to beginto tell you a storythat looks like youso that you never knowI live with you.

We dreams arelike words.We belong to only one body,but want to besomebody else. [End Page 109]
