Book – Libro

Book - 
I spot you on the window,
you are a gorgeous book
with a minimalist cover
that impresses me.
I wish to read your every page
as you appear to be
full of stories and adventures,
confessing dirty secrets
along with wishes and raw emotions.
I am sad though
for I cannot hold you
and inhale your smell.
Why ever not?, you ask.
Well, because it’s late, 
the bookstore is closed,
and I have no money at all.
Can you wait?

Libro -
Te veo en la ventana,
eres un libro hermoso
con una cubierta minimalista
que me impresiona.
Deseo leer cada página tuya 
pues pareces estar
lleno de historias y aventuras
confesando secretos sucios
al igual que deseos y emociones puras.
Me entristezco
pues no puedo tocarte
e inhalar tu esencia.
¿Por qué no?, preguntas.
Bueno porque ya es tarde,
la librería está cerrada
y ya no tengo dinero.
¿Me esperas?
