I have named you queen.
There are taller than you, taller.
There are purer than you, purer.
There are lovelier than you, lovelier.
But you are the queen.

When you go through the streets
No one recognizes you.
No one sees your crystal crown, no one looks
At the carpet of red gold
That you tread as you pass,
The nonexistent carpet.

And when you appear
All the rivers sound
In my body, bells
Shake the sky,
And a hymn fills the world.

Only you and I,
Only you and I, my love,
Listen to me.

LA REINA

Yo te he nombrado reina.
Hay más altas que tú, más altas.
Hay más puras que tú, más puras.
Hay más bellas que tú, hay más bellas.
Pero tú eres la reina.

Cuando vas por las calles
nadie te reconoce.
Nadie ve tu corona de cristal, nadie mira
la alfombra de oro rojo
que pisas donde pasas,
la alfombra que no existe.

Y cuando asomas
suenan todos los ríos
en mi cuerpo, sacuden
el cielo las campanas,
y un himno llena el mundo.

Sólo tú y yo,
sólo tú y yo, amor mío,
lo escuchamos.

 
Pablo Neruda

I've heard via another source but ... damn.

Thank you Gem for all the times you tolerated me. I'll miss the laughs and hijinks! Whenever I had a bad day, logged in, and you were there? You always managed to make me smile and forget my momentary troubles.

You are a most treasured friend.

Rest now luv, we'll miss the hell out of you.

My demons are begging me to open up my mouth
I need them
Mechanically make the words come out
They fight me, vigorous and angry
Watch them pounce
Ignite me
Licking up the flames they bring about

I sold my soul to a three-piece
And he told me I was holy
He’s got me down on both knees
But it’s the devil that's tryna...

Hold me down, hold me down
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for
Hold me down, hold me down
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

Selfish
Taking what I want, and call it mine
I’m helpless
Clinging to a little bit of spine
They rush me
Telling me I’m running out of time
They shush me (shh)
Walking me across a fragile line

I sold my soul to a three-piece
And he told me I was holy
He’s got me down on both knees
But it’s the devil that's tryna...

Hold me down, hold me down
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for
Hold me down, hold me down
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

Hold me down now
Hold me down now
Hold me do-o-o-o-own

I sold my soul to a three-piece
And he told me I was holy
He’s got me down on both knees
But it’s the devil that's tryna...
Hold me down, hold me down
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for
Hold me down, hold me down
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

[ Rated M for language ]

If she tried to remember it would flee and hide, circling ‘round and ‘round until finally finding a new place in her mind to sliver and disappear. It was all smoke and mirrors, her memory, elusive and ethereal. If she didn’t know any better, Vera would swear she was suffering an onset of early Alzheimer’s disease but no, nothing like that.

It was just moments like this! Where she found herself sitting outside a cafe with an untouched cup of coffee on the table in front of her no longer steaming, and suddenly she had no recollection on how she found herself there in the first place.

In the sun.
And a cup of coffee.

Sitting alone and feeling very much as though she had been as equally forgotten along the way. No one spoke until a waiter, some concerned man peering down at her through the artful cut of his bangs, gently asking if she needed anything.

Bright eyes rolled and circled until finding his face, the Gypsy staring rudely before remembering it is human to blink and breathe. The air suddenly rushing in to soothe the burning in her lungs, exhaled abruptly on the smallest of gasps.

"No, I’m fine luv, thanks." A smile, one that curled her lips but never reached her eyes, once more blankly staring until she forced herself into the act of normalcy. Clearing her throat as though embarrassed she rummaged in her purse – thinking she didn’t remember bringing it but then again, she didn’t remember anything about last night – murmuring, "I’ll take the check now."  

He straightened, pausing to lay a hand on her shoulder. "Miss, are you sure?"

Vera stiffened noticeably, she couldn’t help it, her eyes flickering and bleeding into a feral gold, blunt human teeth sinking into her bottom lip. "I’m fine, really luv. I just need the check, I’ll be late for work."

She hasn’t worked for what? The last three years? Not since …
…well. She brushed that thought away as easily as she brushed the young man’s hand off her.

"I could … I could walk with you, my shift is almost ove—"

"No, thanks! And really? It’s what, only ten o’clock? How is your shift already over?" she teased him, throwing money carelessly now on the table, her purse curled tightly to her side.

"Actually, it’s almost three now."

"Oh." She had nothing more to say, not when reality seemed to shrink and warp around her, fear making her heart skip a beat. Missing Time again.

"You work for the library, right? I’ve seen you before." Cue that shy-school-boy-smile, the one he thinks will make a most memorable impression.

"I did, I mean, I do. But I’ve not been in town for a long time," a pause, a new fear taking root in her brain, married to suspicion, "how strange you remember me."

"Is it strange to remember someone who is," he moved closer, just enough to invade her personal space, "rather compelling?"

Would it be rude if she laughed in his face? But he got kudos for the use of 'compelling' when he could’ve used any number of banal adjectives. And he smelled good. Whatever cologne he wore, well! Points again, she thought, her lips twitching in more than a little amusement.

"Considering there are any great number of rather compelling individuals populating our fair city, actually, yes. A little."

Despite being flattered the Gypsy took a step back, tapping the notes on the table with a red fingernail. "Keep the change luv."

"I will see you later." He murmured, tipping his head and leaning forward as though making some grand gesture, a courtier performing a bow.

Paranoia is a b*tch to deal with and Vera was no stranger to it. Immediately her chin rose and her eyes flashed, every instinct screaming at her to shut this sh*t down before she had trouble on her hands.

Again.
Because, why not?

"Don’t count on it."

I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown

I've got a mind of my own
I'm flesh and blood to the bone
I'm not made of stone
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down too long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe
I've got a right to be wrong

Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

You're entitled to your opinion
But it's really my decision
I can't turn back I'm on a mission
If you care don't you dare blur my vision

Let me be all that I can be
Don't smother me with negativity
Whatever's out there waiting for me
I'm going to faced it willingly

I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown

I've got a mind of my own
Flesh and blood to the bone
See, I'm not made of stone
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down to long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe

I've got a right to be wrong
Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It's Friday night and I won't be long
Gotta do my hair, I put my make up on
It's Friday night and I won't be long

'Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No I ain't got cash
I ain't got cash
But I got you baby

Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills!)
Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills!)
But I don't need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don't need no money
As long as I keep dancing

Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It's Saturday and I won't be long
Gotta paint my nails, put my high heels on
It's Saturday and I won't be long

'Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No I ain't got cash
I ain't got cash
But I got you baby

Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills!)
Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills!)
But I don't need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don't need no money
As long as I keep dancing

I don't need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don't need no money
As long as I keep dancing
Oh, oh

Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
I don't need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don't need no money
As long as I keep dancing

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancin' in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big, beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feelin' alive


Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothin' scares me anymore
One, two, three, four

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh oh oh oh

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruisin' down the coast goin' 'bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight


Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothin' scares me anymore
One, two, three, four

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh oh oh oh

Think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the mornin' sky
Later's better than never
Even if you're gone, I'm gonna drive, drive, drive


Got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh oh oh oh

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best


I got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh oh oh oh
