Broken Time


Tick, Tock
goes the clock
every second spent with you

Tick, Tock
goes the clock
another day without you

Tick, Tock
tears come down
another week without you

Tick, Tock
goes the clock
got kicked out
wandering without you

Tick, Tock
goes the clock
wish I were beside you

Tick, Tock
goes the clock
shriveled in the snow

Tick, Tock
goes the clock
the meds are here beside me

Tick, Tock
goes the clock
alone… I’m still beside you

Compose


Image

I write
with tears
with pain
with sorrow
forlornly

I record
ecstatically
melodramatically
lovingly
sentimentally
exuberantly
inamorato
your skin

I compile
your mouth
your pearls,
and diamonds
-as they fall-
broaching them softly….

I pencil
the future
the past
the sighs
your sight
our love
your lips
my embrace
your semblance

I compose
in you
in me
in us

A voice & a dream


For: Prof. Mariela Rivera López

Close my eyes
Lights muddle
An ocean dribbles
to drown my cries

A breeze wafts
the spell I’m under
I believe, I’m falling,
crashing through the sky

Your zephyrs entices me
they heal scars, one touch at a time
until I’m mesmerized completly
until you whispered my name…

I took notice
you flew away
your breeze fills me
as strong as gravity
~as strong as chains~

The lights darken
I fall of the edge
an orb strikes me,
I murmur your name

Still we tangle somehow
Colliding once, again & again
the moon shines above us
no escaping again

Open your eyes,
I opened mine
if you see what I observe
you wouldn’t fly away no more

Lights glisten
as does the sky
the ocean fades
you heard my smile

If Music is the exaltation of the mind…


“Music is the exaltation of the mind derived from things eternal, bursting forth in sound.” Thomas Aquinas

Now, if Thomas Aquinas, a 13th century Italian priest, said this 8 centuries ago… what can we say about Literature? Most of the quotes you will find about Literature is on how language is used to create worlds, galaxies embedded in a piece of paper. I’ve read many quotes on Literature, but they never express Literature as “one of the highest forms of creativity that can withstand time and space. Literature, just like music, is an extension of the author’s very soul. A piece of a life lived. The victory in a defeat. The death of a life that never had the chance to live. Literature is a form of art which can exude, exchange or digress emotions with the reader and writer. Literature is an exaltation of the soul, creating itself from the most vulnerable part of it’s creator; embellished in a piece of paper so that it can be shared with humanity.”
