Poems

I Don’t Know You

image

Passages recall unobserved,
Pages shuffle,
Mind deviates,
History is forgotten.

Cactuses like in deserts grow
Upon the barren mind,
Fancies enveloping the veins
Like the Staff of Hermes.

Thoughts like a peripatetic fatigued.

Love begets hate to see the face
Once loved,
Now hated.

Hate grows and outweighs the weight
Of galaxies upon galaxies.

Now I’m wearied, exhausted and oblivious.

When you come!
When you come!

Know that I don’t know you!

    your pen, like a mythological baguette,
    smooth and gently provokes the alphabet
    for invoking any thought of the reader
    to create and to find the aim of their wander
    through galaxies, — the galaxies of fantasy
    enlighten by the memories from the future
    thank you_______

    I’m ashamed to confess I feel these words too deeply…you write with a genuine, authentic heart, which I appreciate much.
