ENTRY  1

Here We Are Again.

Here we are again

in the gathering night

where her love went sore

in the lips of shadows

of whom she lived

her basis for.

Here we are again

on the holy day

where boys share cupid

with girls; exchanging flowers

for virgin V tonight

beneath a lamp of moaning roof.

Here we are again

at the wake of rustling trees

door opens and banged —

curtains rested and fly.

now the world greets the eye

whispering loneness after 14th.

Here we are again

after moonlight moaning melodies

with a black boy who wore

a red eye — she didn’t know

when he left at the wake of the day

until she feels again alone.
ENTRY 2

A cold winter’s night

The trees singing lullaby 

A whisper in the horizon

My heart beats for joy

O! The warmth of her embrace

The stars glowing brightly 

My love how radiant you are! 

.A sight to behold

I could wait a thousand years 

I could cross the hottest desert 

I could even wrestle with lions

To behold your smile

Beauty! You are far when near

Like a drop in the rain

You are a part of me

Yet you flow majestically 

When would summer come? 

I see through the blur

The image forming

 A true epitome

A reflection of fabulous 

A description of magnificence 

Such grace and candor 

Elegance and courage 

Even if we lose our destination 

Take me on a voyage

I see clearly! 

The glass is broken 

You were just in my head 

A lover I wanted so dearly 

My perfect imagination 

O Beauty! reality separates us
ENTRY 3

GHOST LOVER

The oil of your tender-heartedness towards me never cease to flow continuously;

Dripping in the manner of an hot oil to sharpen my dull spirit

You came into my life with a balm to heal my wounded soul

In the palm of your hands is the feeling like the soft touch of the morning sun;

My heart leaps for joy at every thought of you;

Jumping in excitement of my dearly

My desire has forever remain YOU;

To spend my days with you alone;

Walking into forever because you are there with me

Such that, when the night comes

And the sun is gone to its hiding;

All that matter will be you and me, alone

Curdled in the arms of your deepest affection

Thanks to your love that has brought brightness to my smile

Rhythm to my laughter

And beauty to my well decorated apparel

Your Love,
ENTRY 4

LETTER TO MY DEAD LOVER

Dear Lover,

They said when you died, I’ll die too 

strangely I love on

perhaps to wear the scars of your love.

What is love? Love is me learning to live on without you

To go each day without being scared that your memories will haunt me at night.

My bed stays cold even on hot nights.

I lie to myself that I am not sinking below but I am, into an abyss, a void.

The only relic of you is the picture you left me and I miss you.

I say it often alone that

I love you.

                          Your Lover,

                              Me.
