Revelations V: The Return / Revelaciones V: El Retorno



And so I stood upon a lonesome island
A place
Sought lo one hundred years 
And such a handsome home
So weary from my forever life
And the telling of ten thousand lies
Humanity
Too much for me
Set my soul and self adrift
Seeking a life so simple
Fed from tree and sea
Prepared to face eternity
Isolated and uncomplicated
By any voice save that my own

Y así me paré sobre una isla solitaria
Un lugar
He buscado cien años
Y una casa tan guapo
Así que cansado de mi vida para siempre
Y el relato de diez mil mentiras
Humanidad
Demasiado para mi
Establecer mi alma y sí a la deriva
Buscando una vida tan simple
Hartos de árbol y el mar
Preparado para enfrentar la eternidad
Aislado y sin complicaciones

Por cualquier voz que salvar mi propia



Then peace disrupted
With violent fever
Crippling pain
Bitten by some unknown creature
Howls of anguish
Tears like rain
The world blurred all around me
Body shaking in the sand
And even more than I had wished before
I begged and begged for death
But my cursed heart beat forever on
And my lungs pulled mighty breaths

Entonces la paz interrumpida
Con la fiebre violenta
Dolor paralizante
Mordido por una criatura desconocida
Aullidos de angustia
Las lágrimas como la lluvia
El mundo borroso a mi alrededor
Cuerpo temblando en la arena
E incluso más de lo que había deseado antes
Le rogué y supliqué para la muerte
Pero mi corazón maldito venció para siempre en

Y mis pulmones sacaron respiraciones poderosos


All at once
All symptoms fled
Pain and misery took wing
And when I once more opened my eyes
The view was clear
And instantly I longed for blindness
For my island had disappeared
Replaced by what I instantly knew to be
Another view of the end of all things
Quickly realizing how much mercy
Was shown me on my last visit
Now stripped bare

Todo de una vez
Todos los síntomas huyeron
El dolor y la miseria llevaron ala
Y cuando una vez más abrir los ojos
La vista era clara
Y al instante yo anhelaba la ceguera
Para mi isla había desaparecido
Sustituido por lo que de inmediato supe que ser
Otra vista del fin de todas las cosas
Darse cuenta de lo mucho que la misericordia rápidamente
Fue mi mostrado en mi última visita

Ahora desnudo despojado


And so I stood upon an island city
Atop a tower to make Babel sigh
And the streets were filled with millions
Transfixed by fires in the sky
Mouths agape
Eyes wide and glistening
Lips only able to ask why
And in groups floating here and there
All those once dead now arisen
Stood immobile in the air
Breathed alive to bear the witness
To the brutal, vicious finish
And I banged upon the glass before me
Screaming soundless shouts of rage
And my tower shook
And with one final look
I heard my voice, low and whispery
One phrase
Let me take their place

Y así me paré sobre una ciudad de la isla
En lo alto de una torre de Babel para hacer suspiro
Y las calles se llenaron de millones
Paralizado por los incendios en el cielo
Boquiabiertos
Ojos de ancho y reluciente
Labios solamente capaces de preguntar por qué
Y en grupos flotando aquí y allá
Todos los que, una vez muerto más se levantó
Se situó inmóvil en el aire
Respiré con vida para llevar el testigo
Para el brutal final, vicioso
Y me di un golpe en el cristal de delante de mí
Gritando gritos silenciosos de rabia
Y mi torre sacudió
Y con una mirada final
He oído mi voz, baja y susurrante
Una frase

Permítanme tomar su lugar

how powerful! This poem does left a very strong impression and one feels like one is there while reading. Very convincing words and descriptions. I was wondering while I was reading, what the next line will be....at the same time wondering about the implications of what I have just read. Wonderful work!

Maybe this is the saddest chapter so far. The peace found again and lost again. :((
The character who wants to take the place of all the people who are suffering makes me really sad. But he is also very brave, or maybe is heart is broken by the pain.
This is another great picture of the end of the world, I think you know how much I like it :))))
Thanks for these deep feeling, dear friend!
Hugs!

Lovely poem. As I read, I thought: is that a vampire, weary of living on through human pains and turmoil, begging for death; to be set free

Compelling write.

like yourself, I also studied literature so maybe that is why I always search for different meanings and intepretations when I read a poem...or maybe I just like literature (and poetry).

This poem no.5 is very powerful...it doesn't seem to give any finite answers but I think that only makes it more profound.

p.s. It's actually a dress, but because the bottom has a different pattern it looks like a skirt and a top.

Yes, so far everything is pretty much prologue if you can believe it. The story has barely started. I had not intended to share this much of it but I am certainly going to continue since a few of you really like it. Totally fooled on the dress/skirt thing. All I know was it was very wow and lovely for me.

I've been meaning to find the time to catch up on blogs and I'm glad to have some hours before the new work week dawn.

We discussed this before. I seldom know how to interpret your poems. Being a lit student taught me how poems and could be interpreted in many different ways and what others interpret may not be the author's intention but still, everything makes sense. I somehow see underlying biblical connotations but I could be wrong too.

We are messy bloggers and builders. Lots of ideas brewing but not able to build them up properly. My dreams and reality are always a blur and difficult to manage. I googled Dreamscape and Brainstorm and they sound like pretty interesting movie. Reminds me of Inception.

Dude, you don't remember that apocalyptic day in Rio, when it was on fire and all ? Of course you took the pictures (from your private jet, cause it was kind of a mess, I have to say.)
Anyway, one of these memories that we laugh about o-O
