“I Am Afraid” by Pablo Neruda
“I am afraid. The afternoon is gray and the sadness of the sky opens like a dead man’s mouth. My heart sheds tears as a forgotten Princess in a deserted palace.
I am afraid, and I feel so tired and tiny that I reflect the afternoon without meditating on it. In my sick mind, there cannot fit a dream as the sky cannot fit only one star.
However, in my eyes exists a question, and there is a cry in my mouth that my mouth cannot scream. For there is no ear on earth to hear my sad, abandoned complaint in the middle of the infinite earth.
The universe is dying in a quiet agony without the festive Sun or the green twilight. Saturn agonizes like one of my sorrows.
The earth is a black fruit, from which the sky takes a bite. And through the vastness of emptiness,the afternoon clouds run blindly, like lost boats with broken stars hidden in their holds.
And the death of the world falls over my life.”
(English Translation by Martina Španjolka and Jose Alonso Leon)
