Inclined towards reflection, I am not disappointed,
By my youthful, abundant inner flow.
Close to thirty,
Two of me….
Both creations of nature and of the soul,
Hunt the mirror.
One is the expression of my organic romantic disposition,
Dreaming of budding love,
A prisoner of experiences and feelings,
Which cannot quiet the song of the heart.
The other is reading into the depths of souls,
And is protective
Against betrayal and premonitions of future tragedies.
We’re always together,
Two of me,
In a melodramatic posturing,
Unseen by anyone.
Very often I enjoy participating in collective projects, but lately I am overbooked with my schedule and lack the time for these. Though, this month I have written a poem for Visual Verse, this month’s issue, that can be found at page 76 in the anthology.
