Calypso mourning over the departure of Ulysess, Angelica Kauffmann, 1779)

 

I woke up in the morning,

opened my eyes, hoping for you to bring spring.

My heart has been climbing a mountain without a summit.

I see the closure lying on your crimson velvet.

 

Bow dyed in sweat and blood

affirms my fruitless faith.

Left foot shivers from the phantom of screams.

Corpses of promises float around.

 

I woke up in the morning,

closed my eyes, sobbing for the dead yesterday.

My spirit tries to walk on the invisible road.

Sunset calls you to embark on destiny.

 

Faint dot on his horizon

imprisons me without sentence.

Right foot ponders on his pledges.

Hazy whispers occupy the air.

 

A myriad of awakened nights

I navigate in dreams under the sunlight

where a chimera casts a blight.

 

Remorse and anger

face each other,

stepping on my torn.
