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.
Laura Avelar Poems
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.
The Hatred Within Me
I HATE YOU..HATE YOU.. I HATE YOU FOR MAKING ME LOVE YOU. I HATE YOU FOR LYING TO ME ALL THESE YEARS. I HATE THAT YOU CHOSE TO BE WITH SOMEONE
It's impossible to not love you, to not feel anything for you, to move on to someone else, It's impossible to not ever
What Do I Do Now
What do I do now? do I pick up the pieces of my broken heart and try to glue them back together? do I move on and forget that you ever existed?
I need to be set free from you love, you need to help me get over what I thought was there. I am suffocating on my own pain
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.
The Games We Play
Where are we going? What are we doing? Everythings muddled and doesn't make any sense. This has go to end.
Laughing At Fate
EVERYDAY SEEMS SO MONOTONOUS. GET UP, GO TO WORK, COME HOME,
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.
The Happiness That Is You
I've been searching for so long, for something that I didn't even know existed. Lost for so long in an endless night, I gave into the darkness that became my permanent midnight.
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.
The Inevitable Darkness
In the darkness I await, for the light to save me. I try to find my way out, only to get lost.
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.
Oh! To Be Young!
OH, TO BE YOUNG AND IN LOVE,
FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS
OF THE FUTURE YOU THINK HE
OH, TO BE YOUNG AND FOOLISH,
FLOATING ON A CLOUD OF LOVE,
WAITING FOR YOUR HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
OH, TO BE YOUNG AND NAIVE,
INSIDE A LOVE BUBBLE,
