Lenny Orlando Camacho Poems
This Is What Life Is...
There are so many things I do
that I do not want to do
There are so many things I want to do
that I am not doing
there is little time left on my sand clock
I guess I can use it for regrets
and to think of possibilities that will never be
one last grain of sand
I could've done more
I should've had the courage to...
one last breath
it was a good life, but it could've been better
Death befalls me
the game board is placed before my eyes
I was just a pon
adopting behaviors they provoked
adopting their 'dreams' as mine
accepting blind fears as facts...
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.
