Welcome to my poetry blog!

I am a twenty-four brown-eyed Aruban wanderer;
forever questioning where I'm going
and where I've been.
And when I'm not reading,
I'm writing. When I'm not writing, I'm reading.

Furthermore, writing has always been my
way of captivating a deep thought, grief,
lost love, depression and even hatred (sometimes).

Feel free to read and comment on my weird,
puzzling, obsessive, reckless and sometimes
confusing poems. It's all about what you
interpret from them that gets me buzzin'!

Thank you and have fun reading y'all.

Whisper My Name

Whisper my name...
(in that way)
when the lights are dimmed
it’ll carry me away
to this place
of an absolute quiet,
a solitude so beautiful.
I’ll pray;
then you’ll stay.

Tether me to your soul
beware of its heavy hold.
I wander all alone
and wish for nothing worse,
but whisper my name
(in that way)
bring me home.
If I pray to your God,
then you’ll stay? 

'Cause I don't want to be alone anymore.
