I wait in the darkness, lying like the Maja
after our exchange of insults and barbed-wire words.
Only your shoulders face me
and I am surrounded by this suffocating silence.
My voice whispers to you in this night
and I don’t understand this silence pressing against me.
I rest alone, only confused.
I feel the warmth of your skin
near mine, this night.
Still, only the rays of the ascending moon
