    Soft and subtle, strong and fierce -her poetry leads me in delightful circles, leaving me dizzy, drunk and sated.

    I only dance with women with visions, and Melanie Agua - aquacious female poet - has one.
    keep raising the bar. thump the divide. your saucy subdued wit is not going unnoticed. sjg x

Best Poem of Melanie Agua

I Wait

Like an obedient child,
I wait. I wait.
Tomorrow, will you?
At a friend's party.

I despise dreaming
because they're lies;
sweet hearts' tales
gone by breakfast.

Perhaps i should be
satisfied with gazes;
for your lips are frozen,
stitched and dead.

The Beautiful

the closer it gets to me,
gradually I disregard -
like expired paperdolls.
I advance too soon!

I am blind for those
within my grasp -
But those unavailable,
I have tagged Beautiful.
