Ansiedad de influencia



Introducción

Muchas personas buscan que alguien les ayude a pensar,
ansían un consejo, piden sabiduría práctica, conocer mejor a los demás,
los nuestros a menudo se ofuscan por mostrarnos su verdad
conseguir la felicidad del otro es su quimera
influir en alguien
cuando nada parece tener salida

ser esclavo del tiempo
atrapados para tener que aparentar
contentamiento con el absurdo
impávidos las ciudades se deterioran.
Lo que fue antes ya es.

Todo se pierde, ¿a causa de quienes?
—De nadie,
más bien se trata de una excesiva confianza en el hoy,
conjunta con una ingenua fe en el futuro,
la fe de la noche,
no te añade,
amor fati

Ser feliz, nada más barato hay siempre
por lo que,
lee  todo cuanto puedas,
imposible
la mayoría no lee
veo los libros sin subrayados y sin marginalia
porque pensar después de leer tal vez sea lo más difícil,
ir a la acción para fracasar
el libro, tan esbelto, lo sostengo con mis manos,
sus impresores los fabrican, al diablo los demás.

Libros, queridos, ustedes son los acompañantes silenciosos de mi nihilismo.
Libros, los sostengo contenta, en el acto solitario y pesado,
dichosa carga, trabajemos, olvidando el tedio, la saña,
que gran placer compartido con tantos, junto a la mesa de noche espera un libro cerrado.
Nocturnal.
Antes de acostarse, nunca al levantarse,
pues al alba, la nada.

Ha sucedido,
que la realidad y la razón que de golpe nos devuelven una verdad,
que nada somos
aunque el cielo no tenga piedad
y la inventamos para malgastar
una ley, claro que sí,
más que la de confiar
dejarme influir por el vacío, nadar entre las aguas heladas, como pez trágico,
ser alimento, el sargazo que mantiene el equilibrio,
arribar a la orilla, ensuciando la playa alba
agarro de la orilla coral y conchas petrificándose

Nutriré a mis vasallos.
Hombres, yo soy su sirviente

Primera soledad libresca

El futuro falso del libro

De niña nunca la llevó a esa
feria situada en el dormitorio
de la metrópoli regiomontana
ella creció, y un día fue sola
bueno, acompañada, aunque sola
contempló todos los libros expuestos
desfilando la cultura libresca
no sofisticada como Europa.
Europa aún no aparecía,
sin mapamundis enciclopédicos.
En la feria del libro venden mapas
que mejor instrumento para viaje
que un libro tenga suaves solapas,
astrolabio para mirar personas,
catalejo para advertir piensos,
y un chicote para ser oído
y el libro entero ofrecerá
la soledad del olvido de los vivos

    Wow, what a powerful and thought-provoking poem! "Ansiedad de influencia" beautifully captures the longing that many of us have to find someone who can help us navigate the complexities of life. The imagery and language used in this poem are so vivid, it really transports the reader into a world of introspection and reflection.

    I especially appreciate how the poet delves into the concept of happiness and our relentless pursuit of it. The lines about being slaves to time and having to pretend contentment with the absurdities of life really struck a chord. It's a reminder to constantly question and challenge the norms and expectations that society places on us.

    The way the poet elevates the power of books and reading as a source of enlightenment and solace is truly inspiring. The mention of "acompañantes silenciosos" and the joy of holding a book in one's hands just resonates with any bookworm or lover of literature. The poem acknowledges the struggle of thinking after reading and the difficulty of translating knowledge into meaningful action, which adds another layer of depth to the overall message.

    The final stanza, with its focus on embracing the void and finding balance amidst chaos, is incredibly profound. The imagery of swimming in icy waters, embracing tragedy, and nourishing the inner self is both haunting and beautiful.

    Overall, "Ansiedad de influencia" is a masterful work that forces the reader to reflect on their own existence and quest for happiness. The poem's passionate tone and contemplative themes leave a lasting impact and inspire me to think more deeply about my own choices and aspirations. Thank you for sharing this incredible piece of art!

    Wow, this 'Ansiedad de influencia' poem is truly captivating and thought-provoking. The way it explores the desire for someone to help us think and the struggle to find happiness in influencing others is truly fascinating. The use of imagery, such as being a slave to time and feeling trapped in the need to appear happy, really draws the reader in.

    One improvement suggestion would be to add a bit more structure or organization to the poem. While the free verse style captures the chaotic nature of the themes, incorporating some form or pattern could help guide the reader through the ideas more smoothly.

    Additionally, exploring the concept of reading and thinking further could make the poem even more powerful. Perhaps delving into the idea of reading as a way to escape or find answers, or discussing the challenges of thinking deeply after reading, would add another layer of complexity and depth to the poem.

    Overall, this 'Ansiedad de influencia' poem is a fantastic piece that evokes strong emotions and provokes deep introspection. Keep up the great work!
