I Lost My Lover

I lost my lover some years ago

I don’t know how I lost him

I simply just know.

I might have lost him at sea

Or from the mountains

I might have lost him to music

Or art perhaps

I might have lost him through time

Or perhaps hindered by distance.

I’ve never met my lover

Fate wasn’t as kind to us

I know I lost him in some way

I just hope it was not from someone else.

New Blog Name, Same Old Blog

Hey earthlings!

For those who have followed this blog since…well since, I’ve finally changed the name! It took a while and I didn’t even want to change it at first. I had to though since I won’t be able to post everyday anymore.

Honestly, it felt weird at first that I wasn’t posting here daily. It still feels weird at times.

Back to the blog name. I know the new blog name is a little long. I feel, however, that it’s just right since apart from poems, I do tend to post some prose and some other knick knacks.

Hope you continue to support this blog that’s been going on for 6 years and 4 months now.

See you on the blogsphere!

Conquered

He defeated me

Pull down all my defenses

Left me wondering how it happened

Surprised me with all unexpectedness

If there is such a word.

.

I pulled all the tricks up my sleeve

He smiled through all of it

As if it was a walk in the park.

.

Brick by brick he tore my walls down

But still made me feel safe

He conquered all the hurdles

And appeared unharmed

Despite his hands bleeding just to get through to me.

Like

Hold me like holding the stars in the palm of your hands.

Let me trickle down your arms.

And gaze at me like you gaze at the night sky.

Let me lie in your arms like the sun sets at the end of each day.

Love me like tomorrow will never come.

Different Kind of Beauty

I live in a country were pale skin is considered pretty

Which is an irony

Because most people are brown, bronze, dark, or colored

.

They look at me with envy

And say I’m lucky…

Only because I’m pale, that they think me a beauty.

.

Almost everyone here wants snow white skin

While I think “morenos” or “morenas” are beautiful

But I don’t try to change my skin color

Unlike most I see around me

.

If beauty is just skin deep

Then I don’t want to be considered beautiful

I’d rather be seen as pretty because of my dry wit and sarcasm

Because of my intelligence and quirkiness

.

I’ll shed this pale white skin

And be a different kind of beauty

Who Is Your One?

Is there anyone special that holds your heart?

Do you have your eyes set on someone you think is “it”?

Are you attracted or in love?

Is there a one and only?

Or your only one?

How would you know if that person is indeed “the one”?
