I want you
But you are lost in the abyss
Of to much time gone by.
I need you
But you are lost in the abyss
Of shattered dreams
And yesterday.
I miss you
As I become a kaleidoscope
In front of you,
Pretty colors
That you cannot touch.

It scares me
The power of your passion
Like the rapids
And a heavy metal song
Moving swiftly
And with might
My feelings running rampant
Flowing everywhere
With no beginning
And no end.

Children of broken promises
How confusing it must be
For you to understand
the man that sired you
Can’t live with you.
And your mother
Has many friends.
But no one can ever be
Daddy in your eyes.
Children of broken promises
Can you imagine how confusing
It must be to be told you are
Loved
But always alone?
That’s what I imagine you feel
Children of today...
Children of broken promises.

I just wanted to make
Your day special
And show you
How important you are.
But nothing I do
Can express
How wonderfully made
You are.
Happy Birthday to you.
I celebrate you.

I looked at you
As a child
And saw my soul there
In you.
We were one
And I wondered...
Where did I go?

I saw you today
And you looked so old
It scared me that life
Could take
So much from you.
I saw you today
And you looked so tired
It scared me that
Maybe you would never
Be the same
Again.

But I don’t live alone...

Jesús, this has been war
Since I can remember
Since I was a child.
I can’t picture heaven
But I sure want to see.
And I can only hope
You allow me in.

I shall die always a poet
The way I lived
Hanging on to memories
And feelings
And you.
Trying to relive them
With my words.

You used to tell me
I was amazing
But to many years
Have gone by.
I feel I must be
Obsolete
By now
And my womanly secrets
And allure
Long gone.
But sometimes
I can almost feel
Alive again.

When you look back
I’ll just be a memory.
When you look back
You’ll hardly remember me.
But know and feel
In your being
That I loved you
With all I had.
Though you belonged
To them,
You and I know
You were always mine.
Bonds made...
Can never be broken.

Baby I don’t need anyone
To champion me.
I’m my hero.
When things get tight
I always find a way
To get me out.
But it would sure be nice
To share my ups and downs with you.
To love you...

When I was little
And my hands shook
There was no one there.
I didn’t know
God was watching.
Now that I’m old
And my hands shake
There’s no one there
But I know...
God is always watching.

Stuck in the storm
It doesn’t seem as bad
When you are inside
The eye,
Fighting your way out.
It’s only when
You think about it
That it hurts.
So just do it.
There’s no turning back.

What are you so angry at?
Do you see yourself in me?
Hate yourself as you hate me?
Wrongs are recorded,
Mummified in your mind.
You cannot let go.
But not once do you look
Inside to see you err too.
How can you look in the mirror
And not see me?
Perhaps... that’s what you hate.

Land of the brave
And home of the free.
Those words don’t ring true
As my brothers and sisters
Stay confined.
When babies cry
And no one hears.
When our brethren of power
Claim they are just summer camps and not jails.
When did my land of the brave
My home of the free
Loose it’s compassion for those of us with less?
When did the arms
Of Lady Liberty
Close her embrace?
Shame... shame on them.

People think I sit in my garden
Enjoying it.
But I only feel the thorns
Of the roses I smell
And their essence
Is gone.
My hands bleed.

I want to be there
When your eyes flutter.
I want to be there
When your being
Fights to wake;
When you first open
Your eyes
The expression on your face.
I want to look at you.

Coming home
To my island
My Borinquén
Reminds me of waking
As a young child
In the wee morning
To hear the murmurings
Of the old ones
Speaking of the day.
It brings me back
To a time
When I was surrounded
By comfort and love.

I’m tired of that word love
Being abused and misused.
It’s so simple really...
Either you love
Or you don’t.
And I’m tired of putting all my faith in you, love,
As if I owe you something.
You’ve never given me anything back.
And I’m tired of your brutality
And harsh ways.
You let me down so bad, love.
I shouldn’t have put all my faith in you.
I shouldn’t have believed
In happily ever after.

Cancer.  
You creep up on people
And take control
When their at their worst
You are the devil’s child.
You strike at the weakest link
And you destroy.
You took so many I love
You take so many I love.

Most men will tell you
They want you.
But that’s not what I want
From you.
Most men will tell you
How beautiful they think
You are.
But that’s not what I want
From you.
One word from you
Could free me.
But you don’t have it
To give.

In my window
It’s always spring
And the flowers are always beautiful and alive.
It’s a little game
My mother taught me
And I know it well.
Never see the evil
Never feel it
Only see the love.

Don’t push me over my edge
For you don’t know
What a thin line I tread
Over life and death.
I’m tired of this life
But like a warrior
I walk the thin line between death and life
And I endure.

I have so many things.
I never knew how poor I was
Till I missed friendship.
Till I missed your laughter
And a full house.
Till I missed love.
So I fill my house
With things
Hoping they can replace
The empty spaces
Of my heart
And I replace happiness
With a fake smile
And a glass of wine.
