José

Leave a comment

José era un inmigrante de 18 años de El Salvador. En el año 2000, yo trabajaba como oficial de enlace para la comunidad latina en el Hennepin County District Court. Un día, yo estaba en mi oficina situada en el edificio de Century Plaza en el centro de Minneapolis. Mi trabajo consistía de proporcionar asistencia de interpretación y traducción de documentos. Este día, recibí una llamada a la hora 13:00, necesitaban ayuda en el hospital de Hennepin County Medical Center. José había despertado de un estado de coma después de haber recibido un golpe en la cabeza con un pedazo de madera. El patrón, donde José trabajaba, lo había agredido por haber hablado el español. El jefe de José le había advertido de no hablar el español durante los tiempos de descanso.

Durante el tiempo que ayudé a José, la familia de José estaba muy deprimida y preocupada por la salud de José. El incidente fue muy popularizado debido a la posibilidad de un crimen de odio en contra de José.

Después de la recuperación médica de José, el caso fue llevado ante el sistema judicial de Minnesota. Por la ayuda durante la recuperación de José en el hospital, la oficina de The Victims of Crime del Condado de Hennepin me contactó para dar asistencia a José. De nuevo, la asistencia era de ayudar a José con traducciones en la oficina de The Victims of Crime, con las visitas médicas, la asistencia estatal económica y con el abogado general del distrito del condado de Hennepin.

Por último, el patrón de José fue llevado al tribunal del distrito y acusado de un crimen de odio. El juicio con jurado tomó tres días. El patrón fue condenado culpable por delito agravado y sentenciado a siete años de prisión.

Antes de la sentencia, yo tuve la oportunidad de recitar al tribunal y al público presente la declaración de impacto de parte de la familia de José. No pude controlar las lágrimas al compartir las emociones de la madre y hermanos de José y como el caso les había causado angustia y tristeza.

El procedimiento jurídico en contra del patrón de José fue mi primera experiencia como oficial de enlace, ésta experiencia me hizo sentir que difícil y delicado es ser un hispano parlante en los Estados Unidos de América, especialmente el no saber el idioma Inglés.

Happy years, satisfied and loved.

Time was eternal.

Foreign nation, five floors above ground, sweet home.

Roman empire’s refinement embraced under the bright sun.

Finestra, ceaseless views, excellent berth to see Alice come home.

Prohibited when thunder or drizzle crashed against glass.

Romanticism blocked, cozy soft bed my asylum.

Eclectic master breathing, chewing, captivating the unlimited Rome’s offerings,

Ancient city, colossal to exploit for soul’s dream.

Adrift Alice in a alluring life, seeking self, searching pleasure, probing love.

No need to pursue any more, Love was always home.

I kissed you, I cuddled you, I whiffed you, and I glared you.

Window was an obsession, knew you were always back.

Gifts, company, love and smiles, my best times.

Life challenged to an abysmal fall,

Maledetta finestra!

Life near end, precious awning, my first live saver.

Across the ocean, more lives.

More windows, more views, one floor.

Master turned into self, firmness and self assurance, her new trait.

Abundant love everywhere!

Life change, a paradigm to success.

Changed for the best.

Nature is better.

Leaving earth was not easy

After 14 years, you look excellent.

You live better.

Passion is around you.

Respect has found you.

Don’t look any more.

I leave you in good hands.

Don cry, appreciate and relish what you found.

After all this time, you are home.

And I’m in mine.

From outside your windows, I will have my best views

You!

Don’t be afraid my dear love.
Fears is everywhere, don’t let it consume you.
The world is under constant fear.
People impose fear, people born under fear,
Love, happiness, our weapons.
Eradicate fear and the fear around.
Let your soul dictate your safety.
Let your heart secure your love.
No time to fear my lover.
Together will conquest
Liberation, the domain.
Embrace loving where fear is no fear.
I will be your freedom and your will be mine.

Freedom

In thoughts

In words

In actions

 

I grow

I learn

I love

 

It does not mean fear

It does not mean betrayal

It does not mean deception

 

It means trust

It means respect

It means love

 

I give freedom, I expect the same

I deny freedom, and I receive the same

Strength comes to those who give

The freedom necessary for life

Now

Slipping away

I fear you are slipping away.

Do you have the same fear as I?

Am I? Are you?

 

You tell me I felt different but couldn’t say how.

Just that it was.

Did I? Do I? Am I?

Do you feel different too?

 

When I don’t have it

I want just you

When I have it

I want the same.

What does this all mean?

Do you want me too?

 

Too much or not enough

Too often or not enough

Where is the balance that I want to find with you?

Are you searching for the same?

Your kisses ravage my soul

And calm my heart,

Intensify my passion

And deepen my love.

I want to drown, melt and be lost in your arms

And in your lips.

Your touch linger on mine burning

With the memory of you,

As if we just parted fire,

Kiss me now and kiss me forever.

Promise me, you will never stop.

Open your eyes and yourself,

As I will do to you.

Music bringing back memories
Succumbing testosterone into rhythmic ambience.
Color, conversation, people in the move!
Nothing common, but rather emblematic feelings of euphoria.
To the right, to the left and in the front, Bohemian faces displaying freedom, fun, sexuality and laughter.
What world turns them on?
You wonder, life is good when marbles are a mosaic array.
Elbows touching, eyes connecting, eagerness for discovery.
So much variety, so little time.
When you discover continuity,
The excitement begins.

Huera Kisses

Eyes blue, yet telling

I lose myself

Hypnotized

Drowning in your gaze

 

Embraces of gentle iron

Pulling me in

I desintegrate

Never wanting clemency

 

Kisses of indulgence

Kisses of velvet

Igniting a fire

So strong, so deep

 

Fascination, an ache from within

Yearning to be kindled

Burning

To give myself completely

Abounding sorts

Each its own essence;

All are exclusive.

How can one choose?

Always enclosing an invisible passion.

Mine or yours?

Mine?

Something alluring energetic,

Exotic?

Erotic?

One nibble is never ample;

But must it be all or nothing?

Seduced by temptation

struggle is abandoned.

Delicious, miraculous gratification beyond dreams;

Satisfying unconscious cravings.

Each encounter propelling

Toward another…

Careful?

Obsession could take over.

But, oh, the endless desire for

Forbidden love!

How can I tell you

All that I feel

When words seem

So Inefficient?

I think about you

Everyday

Thinking what you

are doing, thinking.

In no time

My thoughts turn to us

The fire, the passion

Our relation.

But there is more

Than your touch

I love about you,

It’s how I feel near you

With your intellect,

Smile and free spirit

The grace that is You

Gleams through,

And I love it.
