A bruise always changes colors before it heals.

"High Times/Spanglish"

Poems derived from my first completed journal, Black and Blue (2018-2019). Written July 7th 2018.


Me lo siento en mi alma,

Heal my heart,

mi pecho,

heal my spirit,

el deseo fuerte para

heal my body,

conectar a la sangre

mi isla bella,

de mi pais.

Eres mejor de un tocado,

lo vi cuando mi primita lloraba,

de las manos de un hombre,

lo vi cuando un chico miraba, la agua del mar.

Nunca he enamoradose,

Veo todo, con mi mente,

con una reina, pero eres diferente,

Y no con mis ojos, cuando los dos son cerrados,

Quiero besarte, quiero sentarte, quiero admirarte,

y estoy mirando todo.

You are divine,

Y me lo siento,

There are not enough palabres simples to describe you,

en mi cuerpo, en mi corazon.
