Written by Noris Roberts

Translated from the Spanish by the poet

Narrated by Kristine Doll


I want to soak in your waters to keep from drying out,

contemplate you and steal a kiss while you sleep;

thinking of you I have revived


I want to delve into your unredeemed silence,

in the sketch of your kisses;

solemnly roam your body


I want the fragrance of your breath,

the longing of your gaze,

dripping on my skin


Yours is my raving,

the desire, the dishonest nakedness when I dream of you,

yours is my will


I want,

I want to have you with me
