Si te pido que te cuides es porque estos kilómetros no dejan que te guarde en mis brazos, si nunca digo adiós a la hora de dormir, es porque contigo no quiero despedidas, te quiero en mis mañanas de los siguientes días hasta que la vida me lo permita. Si te digo “te extraño” no es para ponernos tristes, sino para alimentarnos del deseo de volver a besarnos…
—  Alexandrave, Hablemos de amores a distancia
Hay días en los que pienso: ¿ay de mi, que sería la vida sin ti? Entonces me pongo a imaginar un día sin tu sonrisa, sin tus buenos días, sin tus besos húmedos, sin hablar de planes futuros, sin contarnos los sueños o dedicarnos versos. Un día sin pasarnos canciones y sin esas conversaciones que me hacen enamorarme a cada momento. ¿Qué sería mi vida sin ti? Un caos invernal, una tormenta sin fin, una vela apagada, un crucigrama sin palabras, un silencio que no se disfruta, porque no lo comparto con esos ojitos tan hermosos que tanto amor irradian, cuando chocan con los míos.

Ka and Ba

Place: Ancient Egypt

Ka

A person’s spirit double created at their birth that they joined upon death.  Depicted in art as upraised arms, the Ka inhabits the mummified corpse, or in its destruction statues in the tomb.  Living individuals leave provisions for the Ka and if the offerings were insufficient, the Ka would be forced to wander as a ghost eating and drinking whatever it could find.

Ba

The personality and unique soul of a person. Depicted as a falcon with the head of a human, the Ba is an after-death consciousness state that rises to look over the body. It moves between the world of the living and the realm of the dead, returning to the tomb with the setting of the sun.

While the Ka and the Ba are not traditional ghost myths, their connection to the living body and subsequent after-death state mark them as interesting after-death consciousness studies—and thus inclusive in this archive. Plus I have a serious fondness for Ancient Egyptian mythology.

Te quiero, te quiero enormemente y no busco aliviarme de esto, quiero la eternidad del momento, quiero tus labios por mi cuerpo.
—  Alexandrave, Notas
Probablemente iba a pensar que estaba loca, por eso no se lo dije, descubrí que su mano era la única con la que quería entrelazarme por el resto de mis días.

"Ka is a wheel; its one purpose is to turn. The spin of ka always brings us back to the same place, to face and reface our mistakes and defeats until we can learn from them. When we learn from the past, the wheel continues to move forward, towards growth and evolution. When we don’t, the wheel spins backward, and we are given another chance. If once more we squander the opportunity, the wheel continues its rotation towards devolution, or destruction."

-Stephen King The dark tower series
