Biography of Laura Avelar
Laura Azucena Avelar, born March 26,1976. Born to Martha Christina Acosta de Avelar and Hector Manuel Lozano Avelar. I have 2 brothers, Hector Rene Avelar and Miguel Angel Avelar. I was born and raised on the southside of Chicago, where I currently reside with my parents. I have 3 dogs, Lola, Lulu and Nena. I'm a pharmacy technician and work at a hospice pharmacy. I've been writing poems since I was 15 years old and I love to express myself through them. A lot of my inspiration comes from my life and the things that I've witnessed and endured. I was married for 3 years to an abusive husband who drank too much and lowered my self esteem and my self worth until I finally woke up and kicked him out. I've never published anything before, so to be able share my poems, even though I'm an extremely private person, is a pleasure. I aspire to one day publish a book of poems, maybe write a memoir on my life or a novel. Who knows what life will bring me in the future. Only God knows.

Love Is A Curse
Love is a curse not a blessing! It's an unending source of destruction, a time bomb ready to explode and destroy you inside.
My sadness swallows me up and devours me. I walk alone with only my shadow to keep me company. Finding it difficult to breathe, I hold my breath til the pain subsides.
Oh! To Be Young!
OH, TO BE YOUNG AND IN LOVE, FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS OF THE FUTURE YOU THINK HE WILL BRING.
Maybe I'm better of alone, maybe that way my heart won't be broken. I should lock up my heart and throw away the key, maybe that way I won't get hurt.
Happiness Is A Mirage

Who Are You Now..
Who are you to tell me what I'm worth! to tell me that I'd never find another like you! I laugh at your face, because I know that's not true.
The Thought Of You
Everyday that passes when I don't see you, seems like an eternity. My heart feels empty, pieces of it taken with you when you are away.
Only you can make me miss you, more than I miss the sun shining on my face, as if I'd been living in darkness all my life. Only you can make my heart beat a million times
You said sorry.. but you didn't need me anymore, you claimed you needed space, yet,
ARE YOU STILL SUPRISED THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I STILL LOVE YOU. THE YEARS THAT WE'VE BEEN APART,
My sadness swallows me up and devours me.
I walk alone with only my shadow to keep me company.
Finding it difficult to breathe,
I hold my breath til the pain subsides.
no more heart,
no more love,
nor more you.
I am sentenced to eternal damnation and left
