Boyar

Ese otoño llovía sin compasión.

Las hojas blandas cubrían el suelo.

Los charcos eran espejos,

Luces rojas, amarillas, y verdes

Se veían boyar en sus reflejos.

 

Por primera vez pensé:

“No viviré más en esta ciudad”

Todo había terminado

Como una ráfaga de fuego

Que borraba lo que fué.

 

Ese instante se clavó en mi memoria

Como vida que cumplio su ciclo.

No había otra escapatoria

Lo que trillaste en mi

Ya no tenía cabida en ti.

 

Las palabras fueron

perdiendo su musicalidad

Solo quedaba un ruido uniforme.

 

Distante es la emoción

De aquellos años verdes.

De aquel horóscopo en el periódico

Que nos decía, “ Es más fácil llegar a la luna

que lograr tus sueños”

 

Es tiempo de partir.

De levantar la cabeza.

Juntar las migajas,

Y meterlas en el bolsillo.

Mirar atrás solo para asegurar

Que sí, que pasó, que fué verdad.
