Poem #1: Absurdities


I am sorry

I hurt your feelings:

I am sorry

For the way

The ocean merges

With the land.

I am sorry

For the way

The clouds clasp the sky.

I am sorry

For so many things:

I am sorry

I could not

Protect you from

The blazing sun

And the bone-

Chilling, icy winters.

I am sorry

For leaving you alone

When you wanted company.

I am sorry

Your need for companionship

Could not match

My need to be left alone.

I am sorry

For the deafening silence

Which must have

Greeted you

Every time you

Tried to visit my home.

I am sorry

For my jail face

And my sailor’s hands.

I am sorry

For my wanderlust,

Leaving behind a

Long trail of broken hearts.

I am sorry

I could not be

In one, two, three,

Four, five and six

Places at once.

Finally, I am sorry

For not meeting your expectations.


Poem #2: Love Song


I want

To see you shine

Like a star in

The night sky.

I want to pluck

That star like

A child plucks

A flower from a garden:

I want to offer

That star

To you as a gift.

Pray, do not be

Afraid of me:

Come over here

And I will not

Allow the scorching

Sun to burn your skin.

I want to

Rescue you from

Sudden and hidden dangers:

May the clouds envelope

You in a warm

And fluffy and fuzzy embrace.

Let the gentle dawn

Arrive in your life

Like a feathered

Angel with wings

Enters paradise.

There is no need

To wander here

And there, my

Gentle flower,

Come here, near

Me, for the taste

Of honey and wine.

After all, it is time

To forget about your troubles.

I want every effort

That you make to

Be rewarded in

Cash and in kind,

So that you know

How much you

Are needed on this Earth.

Do not run away

From me or feign innocence.

Instead, sweetheart,

Walk into my home

And be my guest,

For a change,

And let us

Celebrate one

Another ’til the end.
