 Sin Tu Amor  (Without Your Love)

,

Sin tu amor
Your tattooed memories remain
Flickering inside my blazing heart
Along with the poetry you engraved

Sin tu amor
Slow lava tears scorch my ducts
As your words drip down my cheeks
Since you are not here with me

Sin tu amor
Smoldering emotions consume me
With a fire that will never douse
For our love will burn eternally

.

Yes, unfortunately, it is over.  I am eternally grateful for my time with N.  She is a remarkable, talented, loving woman.  And I dare say, for a brief time, I was loved in a way no man has ever been loved.

 

Another Fallen Tear

The inspiration for this little thing came from a recent Video Chat.

Another Fallen Tear

.

Sometimes
When we cry together
It feels as if
We have loved forever
If only you
Could feel my fingers
Caressing
Your moist cheek
Then perhaps
My pain won’t hurt so bad
When
Another fallen tear
Wets
My trembling screen

For Nandita

raggedy me

Being the only child of parents who were only children, life gets a bit difficult at times.  Now, my only daughter hasn’t taken my call in two months.  This little piece comes from the pain of a lonely life.

raggedy me

.

I am a rag doll
With a button eye that cannot see

I am so broken
From love bursting at my seams

See my stitches
They form a sad smile eternally

My unwanted heart
Keeps loving inside of raggedy me

.

My happiNess can be found in one letter of the alphabet.

my guardian angel

my guardian angel

.

I am her adoring disciple
She is my cathedral of love
A guardian angel
Forever watching over me
For when she spreads her wings
I am blessed by her poetry

She is my religion 
So willing to bear any cross
Loving unconditionally
While making sacrifices without fear
My loving angel would injure herself
Just to baptize me with her tears

.

This is for YOU.  The most unselfish, self-sacrificing woman I have ever met.

do I need you

do I need you

.

do I need you
would the beach exist
sans the sea

yes I do
for without you
my heart has no reason to beat

.

Worried about you.  Feel better N.

I guess it’s pretty obvious I was feeling vulnerable late Friday night. Minutes after my Forgiven post, I wrote this little thing.

My next two posts (Wednesday and Thursday) will be dedicated to all mothers.

We Fell In Love In A Metaphor

We Fell In Love In A Metaphor

.

We met in a poem as poets often do
Cause our words opened poetic doors
As we slowly fell in love in a metaphor

This love has grown with every rhyme
As verses carry the pain and hope that
Our meters will stand the test of time

These red feelings will eclipse eternity
For long after we have turned to dust
Our love will live forever in our poetry.

.

This was for you N.

Cleansed

Cleansed

.

It was a lucid afternoon
Straight out of my dreams
We laughed and loved
Feasting on Pepsi, popcorn, and poetry

Drawing her a warm bath
I attempted to read Neruda
Yet she had other plans

Reciting pink verses
Red rhymes cascaded from her glossy lips
Like slippery suds of passion
Soaking me with love

Words floated like translucent bubbles
Washing my flaws, fears, and pain
Rinsing my body, purifying my heart
Baptizing my soul

My beloved took a bath
It was me that she cleansed.

This poem came from a prompt from my mentor Nandita Yata.  Hopefully, she will approve.
