Biography of Melissa L Tamayo
This fast paced life we live just keeps the human mind clouded. It’s as if we are lost souls searching for our purpose in life. Searching for reasons as to why, where, how and when? I’ve come to the conclusion, only way to find myself, is to lose myself. A little metaphor I came up with. Meaning; sometimes what makes us strong, are the hurdles and obstacles we overcome throughout our lives.
Which can sadly at times leave us viewing the world as a dark, cold place. On the outside seeming situated to everyone around us; but lost inside, confused and fighting to hide it. Building hate, sadness, anger deep down; and all for what? The journey of finding where we truly belong.
At times I find it hard to let out my feelings, so I write down my thoughts. Small simple poems that express how I feel at the time. It typically became a stress reliever for me. Writing is a form of meditation for me. I clear my mind from everything that surrounds me, focused on my inner self.
My poems express who I truly am, how I think, I’m very complex. Some might relate to my poems and some might be confused by them. My train of thought is quite different from others, but it’s what makes my work shine. I’m different in mind, but the same as any other poet, I use words to express what I feel. As well as how I view the world, standing from the outside.
I’m thirty years old, and as I get older I wonder more as to who I really am, what my purpose is in life. That’s why my poems are important to me, when I write I search inside myself. As you read further I hope to get your understandings. Enjoy what you read, because what you read is part of me.

Melissa L Tamayo Poems
Am I The Only One?
As I look in the mirror That sad glare in my eyes The loneliness I try to hide It couldn’t be any clearer
Beauty is not the makeup you wear Or the smell of your perfume wear Beauty is not the cosmetic care of your hair Or the style you choose to flaunt
Time, Reality And Consciousness
What is time? It is not tangible The future does not exist Unless you make it till tomorrow
Although she smiles without a care in the world Leaving a glow wherever she goes Behind that stare of hers, screams loneliness Once clueless as well as careless
Sorrow; Love lost with sadden words Lost hope with tears that burst Twisted happiness, that sometimes hurt Sorrow; A sentiment that makes one tear
New Years Pledge
The shining beam of sunlight pierces my eyes, Forcing my lids to open wide. First thought in my mind, Not only is this a new day;
Wisdom Is She
She's a perfectionist She's courageous and full of knowledge She's courteous and intrigued by those she meets She turns unfortunate situations into thought out lessons
Bad Judge Of Character
We are all blindsided by the selfish individuals. Those who seek to reach the top, the envy never stops. Unfortunately what they do not know, Selling their souls for the white hat;
When Will It End?
I notice the storm heading our way The dark gray clouds overlapping Seems like its taking days The lightning raises the hairs on my legs
Who I Am
I was born from insecurity I’m as loyal as can be I barely knew my father I’m a mother of two sons
When We Met
When we met I tried to avoid you When we met I tried to ignore you
I’m tired of all ripples in the shades I’m tired of the dead flowers in this place I’m tired of the bad energy you bring I’m tired of the hearing the bad man sing
Despite all I know, I still keep that frog in my throat and sadly continue to suppress my soul My thoughts are on overload These feelings, I can not control
I follow the light It lights my way through the night I’m blinded by the many sights, and question all that comes to light
When We Met
When we met
I tried to avoid you
When we met
I tried to ignore you
I tried to stay away from you
Didn't want to go near you
I never pictured us
Loving each other so much
