La libertad (Sacrifice)September 7, 2020
As if I knew youSeptember 7, 2020
She sat on the balcony and the chair next to her was empty,
the sun had no will and the day was not the same.
The bell did not ring
And the girl did not even hear a "good morning".
The grandmothers were not sitting outside
and as they used to say "how are you?" ... they did not ask.
No planes in the sky
and the dogs on the street are looking for food.
The lads did not hold hands
and the girls wore lipstick under the mask.
Shee had a great need for someone to speak to
and in solitude to comfort her
The flowers she finally found
without whining to keep her company.
