A veces


estoy rota,

a veces

estoy entera,

a veces

soy el fuego,

otras,

la nieve eterna.

Cuando llegues,

amor,

ábreme la piel

despacio.

Apágame

si ardo

o enciéndeme

una hoguera.

Sometimes


I am broken,

sometimes,

I am whole,

sometimes,

I am Fire,

others,

eternal snow.

When you get here,

Love,

open my skin

slowly.

Turn me off

if I burn,

or light me

a bonfire.
