Wearying Sleep / Cansar Sueño



The world spins
And so many fall down
The world offers forced, false grins
Like painted circus clowns
Laughing as you slowly drown.

Tolerance at an all time high
Nothing but a communal lie
Look at those still cast aside
But no one ever does.

In this corner each day I stand
This magic, internal, mythic land
This so often solitary, quiet man
Held by thoughts
That feel like quicksand
Full of dreams and hopes and plots
But so afraid to make demands.

Never do I ask
For what I do not need
For the asking is a task
So difficult for me
So my smile becomes my mask
For things long buried deep
In a restless, endless, wearying sleep.





El mundo gira 
Y que muchos se quedan abajo 
El mundo ofrece forzado, falso sonríe 
Como pintar payasos circo 
Poco a poco uno se va riendo como ahogarse. 

Tolerancia en un momento alto 
Nada más que una mentira comunal 
Mira a los todavía echar a un lado 
Pero nadie. 

En este rincón cada día estoy 
Este truco de magia, interno, tierra mítica 
Esta tan a menudo solitario, un hombre tranquilo 
Celebrada por los pensamientos 
Que se sienten como arenas movedizas 
Llena de sueños y esperanzas y parcelas 
Pero tanto miedo a hacer peticiones. 

No le pido 
Por lo que no necesito 
Para el que pregunto es una tarea 
Tan difícil para mí 
Así que mi sonrisa se convierte en mi máscara 
Para cosas sepultadas 
En un inquieto, interminable, abrumar el sueño.

I feel like I am repeating myself again and again like a tape recorder when I praise your poems, but what to do? you always come up with the most sensitive, sweet and touching ones. I really love reading them.

I remember feeling like this so much when I was younger. Somehow, since being a teacher, I've become a demanding madame! X
