He roams the streets,
he remembers the place,
he used to see her there
and then dream of her face.
He walks in the night,
he just hates the day,
he knows his steps,
he knows his way.
The vault stands straight,
its dome circled by mist,
in its stone carved heart,
his beloved lies asleep.
He goes down the stairs,
he will see her at long last,
he is tired of waiting
for her to come to life.
The steps tremble in fear,
a lover has crossed thresholds,
a lover has come!
He knows where she is,
she is in the deepest of depths,
there she lies, embalmed
and all wrapped in white lace.
Her beauty forever intact,
waiting for centuries,
her soul still lingering 
around the grey fiery stones.
He calls her name softly,
she hears him from far away,
he, who once arose her senses,
is calling her back to life.
He kisses her pale lips
and waits under a pale light,
she knows it is him,
he has come for her at last,
she welcomes her soul again,
and moves into his arms.
And there they stay,
together at last,
her vault is their home,
her stone niche their bed,
together they will roam
the city of the dead.
Centuries of utter grief,
centuries of gnawing desire,
now they  melt away,
in the spiraling vortex,
in the welcome madness,
of a thousand climaxes.
No more pain for them,
together they in love dwell,
and no man, or god, or force
will make them part again.
 
Buenos Aires, March 2019.
