Desire – Deseo

Poetry, Vienna
You make me desire things
I ignored I desired:
riding a scooter,
a bike,
thirsting for alcohol,
craving a cigarrette,
ignoring my fears
defying my inhibitions
oh so much more.
I want to sin 
and pray in equal measure
at every church.
What are you doing to me?
Because of you,
I shall grant myself 
the permission to be 
who I not been for years...
Thank you.

Me haces desear cosas
que ignoraba desear:
andar en patineta
y en bicicleta,
tener sed por el alcohol,
el antojo de un cigarrillo,
ignorar mis miedos,
desafiar mis inhibiciones 
y mucho más. 
Se me antoja pecar
y al mismo tiempo rezar
en tantas iglesias que hay.
¿Qué me has hecho?
Gracias a ti
me daré el permiso de ser
lo que no he sido
en muchos años...
