My Life, My Universe

These are poems about my day-to-day life.
My thoughts, my feelings, my words.
Enjoy.

Adolescence

As blinds of darkness fell before our eyes,
the heat of San Diego glittered pink
and yellow while I soaked in all your lies;
I never even stopped myself to think.

The smoke strung holy veils of offerings burnt
from lusty lips, a stupid habit you
had taught my flesh; the craves I, faithful, learnt
but, unlike you, matured and then outgrew.

Those chlorine summers sting my body still
like cigarettes that ate my blackened throat
and vodka making me intensely ill:
the youth I lost in cities far remote.

If only I could wash the salt from tears,
so I could see beyond the broken years.
