Poem By Juan Varela

Such a candy
love was sweet
unaware of diabetes

Pretty bitter when tedium
came to stay with us
and then
we droop ourselves
within a mute conversation
of speechless frenzy

The touch of my beard
irritates your skin
it doesn’t tickle anymore
to spark the passion
the making of love

You don’t laugh of my jokes
your hearsay disgusts me
romance is gone away
bushed of the same
but we don’t get the courage
to say adieu
afraid of the jumbies
that keep telling us
you look good in sync
fearful of wake up
alone and living
for ever again
