THE DUEL
                                                         
Sometimes in dreams
Your moustache calls me for a duel.
I accept it.
When the bell rings
Unknown spectators howl and scream.
The distance between you and me
Will be shorter and wider.
Sometimes it all ends to begin.
The string of words
Tied to my heart bursts.
A legacy of burdens
Throbbing in the vein
Now gone forever.
And I will walk towards
The victory stand
Hands up.
