Poem By Alejandra Olivas

Oh dear life,
I wish I almost died.
So I can see a glimpse
Of you before my eyes.
And I can remember
who I was
And become whole once more.

Oh dear life
Where have you gone now?
Back to the heavens,
To the deep blue sea,
Or to the bright stars?
Where I know you never wished to leave.
Oh dear life,
Lets walk together once more…

I don't know if you've every felt like you become an expectator of your own life, while everyone takes decisions for you. It's horrible! Sometimes we forget to live, its that simple! I wrote this poem so I would remind myself of living. Maybe this poem can do the same to you.

I Call Your Name In The Night

I call your name in the night
Hoping, mercy will be granted on this soul
And you will come to me.

El Amor No Es Real

¿Qué eres, si no el reflejo de mis sueños?
Será por eso que tan inalcanzable te volviste.
Con ansia espero el día de conocerte.
Con ansia espero pasar mi mano por tu delicado rostro


The poet speaks beyond his words
The poet writes in rhythmic verse
To which he feels true.

My Teacher

The dead poet sat at my side.
His breath inspired my pen
And his presence inspired deadly themes.


Every thought revolves around you
I don't understand
what keeps us in different routes.
Why are you not bold enough to ask


Aphrodite promised your return on Beltane
I hang to her words with the last hope
Love can give.
Spring is still young
