and you were gazing at me, more than gazing — my gaze was dreaming you, and yours was dreaming me.

Quote
I don’t want you to leave, heartache, the last form of loving. I feel myself live when you hurt me not in yourself, or here, but further:           in the earth, in the year you come from, in my love for her                           and everything it meant. In that sunken reality which denies itself and insists that it never existed, that it was only a pretext of mine for living. If you didn’t stay with me, heartache, irrefutably, I would believe that; but you do stay with me. Your truth assures me that nothing was a lie. And as long as I feel you, heartache, you will be the proof of another life in which you didn’t hurt me. The great proof, in the distance, that it existed, that it still exists, that she loved me, yes, that I’m still loving her.
Pedro Salinas, from "The Voice I Owe to You," Memory in My Hands: The Love Poetry of Pedro Salinas (Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers, 2009)

Nunca se entiende un sueño
más que cuando se quiere a un ser humano
despacio, muy despacio
y sin mucha esperanza.

Paura. Di te. Amarti è il rischio piú alto.

 Il tuo modo d’amare è lasciare che io ti ami.
Il sì con cui ti abbandoni è il silenzio. […]
Mai parole o abbracci mi diranno che esistevi
e mi hai amato: mai.
Me lo dicono fogli bianchi, mappe, telefoni, presagi; tu, no.
E sto abbracciato a te senza chiederti nulla,
per timore che non sia vero che tu vivi e mi ami.
E sto abbracciato a te senza guardare e senza toccarti.
Non debba mai scoprire, con domande, con carezze,
quella solitudine immensa, d’amarti solo io.
La voce a te dovuta, Pedro Salinas ~ 1933

La mia anima, la mia vita hanno bisogno di sapere che il tuo amore è possibile, lontano o vicino, tra le tue braccia o con la tua ombra.

Allá al fondo, la amenaza
de romperte en dos pedazos
—vida o muerte, tierra o cielo—
bruscamente irreparable.

Quote
And for however long you do not come, I’ll wait on the brink of flights, of dreams, of comet trails, motionless. Because I know that neither wings,   nor wheels nor sails can travel   to where I once was.   They have all gone astray. Because I know that to reach where I was can only be with you, be through you.
Pedro Salinas, from "The Voice I Owe to You," Memory in My Hands: The Love Poetry of Pedro Salinas (Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers, 2009)

E dura questo bacio
più del silenzio, della luce.
Perché io non bacio ora
né una carne né una bocca,
che scappa, che mi sfugge.
No.
Ti sto baciando più lontano.
— Pedro Salinas
