The stretch of ocean between Hispanola nd Puerto Rico is known to be unforgiving.


I pray to God I don’t die out here tonight.
My mistress ocean, angry with delight.
O’ dios mio, salva mi alma.

Mona calls but never by my name.
“Foolish child dare to come to me again.
You’ve crossed my path one too many times.”

She shows me which way to choose.
She plays a game she’ll never lose.
I’m sinking down and further down a hole.

She tore my heart and ripped my sail(s).
And thundered out she will prevail (she never fails).
And if I died, she’ll steal away my soul.

I find this mistress hard to love.
All her beauty I’m thinking of.
It takes my breath. It takes my everything.

I stare into the deepness of her eyes
In a single thought I finally realize
She will take me to and over the brink.


Tu me tienes encantado
