L.P. Alexanders Poems

Call me traditional or technologically impaired,
But to pen my poems I preferred
On a piece of paper
Than to type them on a computer
...

Lying on the ground
Hair: orange, yellow and brown,
The stage coming now
...

The lost sight of his eyes makes
him look calm and relax
he is here next to me
but not with me
...

Jailed Time

There...
Outside on the streets,
...

This is the case:
Thy Angel face is full of grace
In the dark space and in this phrase.
...

You lied once, twice and thrice
That is your sin and your vice
To me and to yourself, you lied:
You lie now right after your lies.
...

The Beginning of the End
The End of the Beginning,
A combination of experiences
Some unfair, others fair,
...

La blanka, rugxa kaj verda tempo
kun ornamajxoj kaj elektralumoj gxis en la kampo
La plej bela, cxarma kaj atendita sezono
kiam la felicxeco de la homoj atingas la ozono
...

Everyday is very similar to the day before
Feelings are bleeding from the core of my heart
a deep place where I cannot look for anymore,
look for a remedy that were not tart.
...

Lava flowing and destroying,
Thousands of small pieces, a pile of heavy ashes,
Damaged and deteriorated fertile land,
A perennial wound and...
...

Green leaves
Long and slim branches
With the cool wind dancing
And birds rhythmically singing
...

In a rather cool morning
Myself, I find
Here drinking hot chocolate
And eating snacks,
...

SAY IT! SAY IT NOW!
Say it here and Say it out loud!
Slap, Punch my face with your first true words!
That you will Not make this Worse!
...

I wonder...Does true Love really exist? ?
If it does, I ask...Where or Who is It? ?

Is there a pure and unconditional Love out there? ?
...

I wonder...Does true Love really exist? ?
If it does, I ask...Where or Who is It? ?

Is there a pure and unconditional Love out there? ?
...

I was born more than 2 decades ago,
And 15 years later I realized i was not a foe.
Since then, I sadly remembered those days and my decisions;
Although it wasn't, hasn't been the case in some occasions,
...

I'm also falling for you,
and that makes me so blue;
I can't stop that from night to day;
However, I hope it goes away,
...

Love is not about logic.
Love is all about feelings;
Stop reasoning and resisting
And just start feeling!

L.P. Alexanders Biography

L.P. Alexanders was born 26th January 1984 in San José, Costa Rica. He is the youngest of four siblings. His mother language is Spanish, but he also speaks English, Esperanto and a little of Portuguese. Since his childhood, Alex, as his close friends call him, was interested in art; nonetheless, writing or reading did not call his attention, only drawing and painting. Indeed, he showed very good drawing skills and actually won an infant drawing contest at the age of six. Due to the peaceful nature of his country, L.P Alexanders had a normal and tranquil childhood and adolescence. Art, in any kind, has been part of his life and he has experimented with drawing, image & video editing, and the Japanese art of Origami and Kirigami till today.

In 2003, Alex attended the University of Costa Rica where he was enrolled in a major he highly disliked; therefore, in 2005, he changed his major for English to become a translator. But, in 2004, he took a basic Esperanto language course which he found it appealing and easy to learn. In the next years, L.P. began to keep correspondence with esperantists around the world in order to carry on with his learning of the language by his own. One year later, he took a poetry course in the second semester and there, he had to write a haiku poem ('Between hot and cold') which became his first poem ever written in English. Then, in the same course he had to write a poem as a part of a quiz. Alex wrote two poems: 'jailed time' and a concrete poem 'experienced pencil' which his professor really loved it. After these first poems and good responses, L.P Alexanders became very interested in poetry and has only written some other poems due to lack of time. He really admires, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, W. Shakespeare and W. Blake.

Alex hungers for learning new languages and has taken Portuguese and German courses at the University of Costa Rica. He just took a basic Italian course and an intensive Chinese Course. Previously, he took a British literature course and learned a lot about famous English writers...

The Best Poem Of L.P. Alexanders

A Classic Poet’s Soul In Modern Times

Call me traditional or technologically impaired,
But to pen my poems I preferred
On a piece of paper
Than to type them on a computer
Because the pencil is to the poet as
The chisel is to the sculptor;
And this idea should come to pass
In the mind of every Art creator,
For in his hands and mind
Is the quintessential Art of any kind!
