Oddly, I don’t read much poetry, but back in high schooI I had an inclination for writing it. I guess even back then, I knew in my heart that words were going to be my biggest passion, though it took another few years for my brain to catch up. In December 2013 I dug up all of my poems, some of them written as a teenager, some of them written in my adult life, and compiled them into a slim volume of twenty-one poems. It’s the present I gave my husband last year for Valentine’s Day, and I hope this will give all of my friends and readers an idea of a thoughtful, romantic present for your lover or spouse.
Here is one of my favorite poems:
You used to be a sacred angel,
My soul was your beloved temple,
My body used to be your gate
To happiness’s sweet abyss.
And later you became a demon,
A foreign, mediocre god
Who claimed as granted sacrifices
My tears, illusions and my pain.
Now you are just a memory,
An abstract nightmare that won’t last.
Now I have turned into a GODDESS.
The temple’s ruined, burning fast.
Now you are simply just my past.
