Lenny Orlando Camacho [L.O. Camacho]
Biography of Lenny Orlando Camacho
Mexico is my home. I wrote my first short story at 11 for a school assignment; my teacher of Spanish nearly failed me because she was convinced I had stole it from somewhere else. I wrote my first two poems at 11 also; my parents prohibited me writing again. I was isolated and shy and those two experiences made me stop writing, but they never made me stop thinking about writing and creating, at least in my head.
Just last year I got out of the prison I had self impossed thanks to some adults that hadn't understood the creative impulses that were driving me at such a tender age. They don't remember those experiences which makes the whole process even sadder. But I am free and am becoming freer as I pour words out of my soul.

My lips are wanting a kiss from yours,
a touch of madness that most call love.
My lips are wanting to say your name,
to touch your skin and burn with it.
My lips are wanting to catch your breath,
to feel the voice of your throbbing veins.
My lips are wanting to be yours tonight,
and wake up with you, kisssed by morning light
for all the days that soon will come.
