Aquel día
a la media luz de una habitación
con el sol ocultándose detrás de las cortinas;
con mi espalda contra la cama,
tus manos en mis muñecas,
mis piernas rodeando tu cintura.
Tu cuerpo en el mío.

Aquel día, en aquella cama
entre algarabías de besos y almohadas
encontré tus ojos puestos en los míos
y una historia me contaban
sobre un hombre perdido
por gusto y con gusto,
que no sabía en qué se había metido;
que añoraba algo que no podía tener
e igual lo hizo suyo casi sin querer
y ahora está entre las piernas de esa mujer,
con su expresión desarmada
y el alma transparente
y tan resplandeciente...
En tu mirada me vi reflejada.

Fue entonces cuando noté
de siete billones de personas
vos eras a quien yo deseaba.
De siete billones de personas
vos eras a quien yo anhelaba
y en tu mirada y risa me perdía.
De siete billones de personas
vos eras a quien yo quería.
Y tal vez
no sos el amor de mi vida.
Pero eso no importa,
sos el amor de mi ahora.
21/10/17. It's been forever since I wrote poetry at all, let alone poetry in Spanish, but I loved how this turned out and it means so much to me. To the person who inspired this: I love you, more than you'll ever know. I might try to translate this to English to get more attention to it, but for now, I'm happy this is my comeback :)

I thought it might be nice to do like a secret santa thingy on hellopoetry only not secret and not santa… what I mean is, find a random stranger you literally have never met and do NOT know at all whose poetry you like and spend actual time genuinely reading their work, picking out your favorite lines and responding to them, pondering them, etc. Write something positive to them and post it as a poem with their name in the title. The “DEAR BLANK” challenge only you put their name instead of “blank”. I think we could all use a little recognition that we exist and are worth something since everyone seems a little depressed on here (including myself) which is fine, it’s a great outlet but it would be nice for people to just spontaneously find that a random stranger spent time in their life just to recognize you and care about your poetry. To write a kind poem/letter to them responding to lines in their poetry. If you need an example I just posted DEAR IMALRIGHT which was exactly what I meant. Check out imalright's poetry btw it is amazing.
I plan on doing for more than one person and I'd love for you to do the same. Spread a little kindness, we could all use a little.
Also message me if you are going to do the challenge and message the stranger you do the DEAR BLANK challenge for so they know to look for and read your poem.
I just thought that Imalright who was a perfect stranger to me seemed like a wonderful poet and a wonderful person based on her poetry so I chose her.
You do that too if you accept the DEAR BLANK challenge.
please repost this over and over so we can get as many people involved as possible and try and make a difference in a couple people's lives because I just want to make everyone feel loved but I'm just one girl, I can't do it alone. Please help me with this and join me in the DEAR BLANK challenge. Take time out of your day to properly appreciate someone's poetry who you do not know.

His eyes strip my soul
in a way that no one has even stripped my body
Ariadna Parrales Oct 2014
Everyone is passing by
Without ever looking behind,
and I can't help but wonder why
I feel lo empty inside.
In my face there's a smile,
but that's my way to hide.
That's the easiest way to lie:
let everyone think you are alright.

But I always wonder if someone cares.
I wonder if they remember my name.
I don't know if there is a place
where I can ever feel safe,
or if I have to face
that I march to a very different pace,
that I'll always have a different say,
that I just don't fit in any way.

"You are unique", is what I hear,
but that's exactly what I fear.
Alone is how I feel
Cause I have a different way of being.
So I let escape a tear
to remind me I'm still here
even when no one is near,
even when nothing is clear.

And I'm still here crying.
And it feels like dying.
And I don't want to keep trying.
I can't keep fighting
against something I don't see,
something that's not letting me breathe,
that's not letting me live.
I wonder...
Why does it hurt so much to be....?

I'm surrounded by a sea of people
As far as the eye can see
All flowing in the same direction
And just floating along, is me

I've been wading in this water
Letting it carry me any way
Not caring about which direction
And never having any say

After wading all this time though
My legs started growing tired
So finally it was time to choose
Which direction I desired

But the problem with floating along
Was that I never became aware
I wasn't really a part of the waves
I was just sort of...there

What I wanted didn't matter
The waves still moved as one
Whether I moved with or against them
Didn't matter in the long run

Then I thought I better get out
And give myself some time to think
But I couldn't see the shore anymore
And with that, I started to sink

Now I'm surrounded by a sea of people
As far as the eye can see
All still flowing in the same direction
But drowning in it, is me

Wow, I am so honored that this was chosen for daily poem and that I have received so many friendly comments.
Thank you all for your friendly words and messages, and for your love and support. You have no idea how much it means to me. <3

See the sun rise,
watch the sky dress up with a smile.
Take it as your own,
take it to be yours.

Forget about shadows,
there's a different horizon to follow.
Embrace the beauty of a new day.
Enjoy the privilege of living life on your own say.

What can a mind do,
when a heart takes the lead?
How to follow the truth,
when a soul just wants to be?
So I decided they could agree:
Follow your heart
Set your mind free
Dance with your soul
Be as happy as you can be
