Am I Gone

Poem By Janine Alyssa Navarro

the air has taken shape
of a monster, a beast
that I can’t fend off
it tugs at my heart
it grasps upon my soul
it gnaws at my sanity
as I run for cover
unaware of directions
just so I could get away
from the odious spirit
and its desperation
to swallow me whole
am I gone
am I breaking apart
was I ever whole?
I don’t know much
I have no plans
but to keep running
until goodbye
no longer finds me

You watched me
Float above your bed
I count
The breaths I take

What Do You See?

you see a subtle woman
clothed in her luscious black hair
but you’ve turned her into a child
each time you left that door

Seven Stars

Elegant as a floating cloud
Her breath tastes of sugar
Her eyes have stolen the stars
Porcelain skin that burns

Unrequited And Wine

imperfect grapes, or even berries
were drowned into this bottle
but care not for its origin, its maker;
instead bask in its service, its offering

Our Dreams Were Suspended

Our dreams were suspended
Like little stars on a baby's mobile
The clouds clothed us unrequitedly
Even if we ran away to the seas
