Mario Benedetti, on love…
by mx.

Mario Benedetti is considered one of the most important writers of the 20th century in Latin America and Spain. He was Uruguayan and was part of the Generación del ‘45.

His language was simple, universal and easy to relate to. He spoke  from the heart, and often sadness permeated his words, as his love poems of unrequited love.

We share with you one of his poems to enjoy on Valentine’s Day !

 Corazón coraza

Porque te tengo y no

porque te pienso

porque la noche está de ojos abiertos

porque la noche pasa y digo amor

porque has venido a recoger tu imagen

y eres mejor que todas tus imágenes

porque eres linda desde el pie hasta el alma

porque eres buena desde el alma a mí

porque te escondes dulce en el orgullo

pequeña y dulce

corazón coraza

porque eres mía

porque no eres mía

porque te miro y muero

y peor que muero

si no te miro amor

si no te miro

porque tú siempre existes dondequiera

pero existes mejor donde te quiero

porque tu boca es sangre

y tienes frío

tengo que amarte amor

tengo que amarte

aunque esta herida duela como dos

aunque te busque y no te encuentre

y aunque

la noche pase y yo te tenga

y no.
