A Bad Night


The world, my heart, in pain this night.
As raindrops are falling with only stars for light.
I sit, my raindrops, tears.
The finale is an introduction.
Welcome to my world.
Pain. Misery. Despair. The blackness of death clutches after my heart.
I can not forget, yet I'll never remember, your face, that phrase.
Those magical words, with the strength of a tornado, intended to kill. No survivors.
I don't want to die tonight. The day ahead will be bright. I'll find me, some way, some how, never stray from the path.
The dark is a warning sign. The light brings sickness. I cannot deny the existence of death. I can only bargain for time.
The current offer in this bartering battle... a soul.

Do I pay now? Up front, in full
Or do I take the monthly option, mind you the interest would nearly double the total.
I'm lost at land, my heart bleeding into my veins.
Beating my body with blood.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
