About That Woman

You have nothing to say
About that woman
Who just turned over
And fell asleep?

Who you said
Wore a skin
The colour of the first rays
Of the sun

In her blood
The waters of
The first ever
Ancestral well

And inside
She carried
The desolation of the greatest
Forest on the earth

In her eyes you have seen
The solitude
Of an ancient edifice
The one you wanted to share

The same woman
Who stood at the gate
Waiting for you
In an empty house
With a long corridor…!
