Profundo

Las mareas se llevan lo que el viento dejó, y la lluvia empieza a caer. Un pesado humo inunda la sala que se llena con vapor. Las nubes bajan y el cielo parece desaparecer, mezclándose con el mar. La oscuridad se adueña del lugar y los tiburones empiezan a acechar. Cada vez veo más lejos la orilla, no puedo tocar el suelo. Abajo un cardumen de peces y al fondo los depredadores que esperan devorarlos. La sal se cuela en mis pulmones, obligándome a toser y esperar esa figura que no piensa aparecer. Con el agua al cuello, veo sus ojos brillar de color azul confundiéndose con el mar.

Murciélagos forman una nube sobre la superficie del océano con escalofriantes chillidos al volar. Voces nos gritan desde arriba, nos controlan como marionetas y con solo unos movimientos, nos frenan de escapar. Nos mantienen en la profundidad, en medio de la oscuridad con ojos poseídos de azul que cada vez se cristalizan más. Las burbujas ascienden a la superficie y no nos dejan respirar pues estamos concentrados en la profundidad de unas aguas negras, viendo el acantilado submarino, a punto de saltar. Los fantasmas no dejan de revolotear, sumergiéndose entre las olas y me da miedo abrir los ojos, no quiero verlos. Nunca amanecerá, seguiremos esperando la luz para que nos saque de esta pesadilla, ambos estamos nadando hacia mar adentro, cada vez más profundo, los peces debajo, los murciélagos arriba y los tiburones detrás.

Goodbye

Goodbye we say when we see them go away,

goodbye we say when we try to hold on.

Goodbye we use to say when that train departs,

carrying everything we had.

 

So we continue watching him go,

and we start to use to,

that terrible loneliness,

that never left our sides.

 

The train that never runs out of energy,

that flies away with our opportunities.

That sometimes end as a tragedy,

for all our communities.

 

Year after year,

spring after spring.

Just as we start to see things crystal clear,

what time brings.

 

To be successful,

in what we want to get,

we should learn to forget.

 

And we have to learn to say goodbye,

drop that treacherous past.

Finally, everything will come to an end,

and we’ll leave behind that old train.

 

Successful

10 best foods in the world

These are the ten most delicious foods in the world, listed from the tenth to the first one all around the world (images missing).

#10: Chicken Tandoori

Something that characterizes indian gastronomy is the use of spices and a lot of vegetables. This is one of the most popular dishes and also one of the ten most consumed fast foods. Many friends have told me it’s delicious, willing to taste it.

#9: Lechón a la varita

Is one of the best tropical foods along with Arroz con gandules, tostones, alcapurrias besides others. I have eaten it like once in my whole life.

#8: Mamule

This plate is a mix of many mediterranean gastronomic characteristics and from indian cuisine in the use of spices. It is a very popular plate along with falafel. I’ve heard it’s very seasoned.

#7: Sushi

One of my favorite dishes! 🙂 Japan’s gastronomy has evolved beaches of political and social changes. In the Medieval Era, Japanese cuisine was influenced by Chinese gastronomy. The most popular plate is the sushi and its dumplings. Without forgetting that its one of the most dangerous plates in the world if it isn’t prepared in the right way.

#6: Eggrolls

Chinese gastronomy is one of the most delicious because of the country’s ancient culinary tradition and it is widely represented across the world. The first eggroll I ate was the prepared in my school’s cafeteria and I hated it! Teacher had to sit next to me to ensure I ate it all but after I ate it in a good Chinese restaurant, I changed my opinion about it 😀

#5: Churrasco

From my country! And of course, one of my favorites. Argentina’s gastronomy differentiates from the rest of America’s because of its great European’s contribution. In Argentina they combine perfectly the creole, Indian, Italian and Spanish gastronomies. ❤

#4: Paella

Spanish gastronomy is enriched by the contributions of different regions of the country. This cuisine’s origine oscillates  between the rural and the coastal style, represents many cultures, landscapes and climates. Their famous paella is delicious. I use to take out the seafood from it because I don’t like it and eat the rest.

#3: Pizza

Italy’s food reflects the variety of its regions and the diversity of its history. Its lasagna and pizza are the most popular plates of the country besides being my favorite food and the only fast food I eat. In summary, I can’t live without pizza.

#2: Tacos

Actually, I don’t eat tacos often but I can say they are ok. The reason why they are in second place is that many people eat them. Mexican food is known by its high level of seasoning (chile!). Its most popular plates are tacos, burritos and fajitas.

And the first one…

Ceviche!

I had a Peruvian biology teacher and he LOVED ceviche, it is seafood so I don’t eat it but 90% of the people I know likes ceviche. I don’t know, it’s not so bad… 😉

 

And this is all for today, the best food from all around the world. All so different but equally exquisite. Do you agree with these ten plates? What’s you’re favorite food? Will you add or remove something from the list?

Everyone holds a secret

Everyone holds a secret, one that chase them around, one that haunts them at night, one that goes through their everyday life. Everyone holds a secret, one that no one knows, one they’ll keep forever, one they’ll never tell. Everyone’s holding back, when you see them walk through the serious street in the middle of the crowd. Everyone’s holding back, when you watch them laugh, when you watch them cry, when you watch them shout, when you watch them smile.

Nobody knows what happens, when the curtains are finally closed, and that remains a mystery for the outer world. Nobody knows what’s hiding behind each pair of eyelashes, which keeps more secrets we could even imagine. Nobody knows the pain hidden behind a mask, no one can see the joy in the corner of a tear.

 So I don’t know which is the secret you’re holding or if someday you will reveal it. I don’t know even if you are aware that your holding a secret, the one you try to see but can’t never realize, the one that slips out of your hands and out of your tears. I’ll just tell you that everyone holds a secret, one that haunts them at night, one they’ll keep forever, one they’ll never tell.

It’s been years since I last uploaded something, I’m sorry. I was very busy with Christmas stuff as well as a short novel I’m writing for a contest. I will come up with something very soon, see you in my next entry ❤

 

Someday
