Keeper - Poem by Windsor Guadalupe Jr

In the morning
Where the people
Are awake with strife,
I clench my fists
Just to stay alive.

If I never
See you again past
These opaque shades
And glinting windows
That echo the nuisances
Of my wails,

I’d keep
Every inch
Every piece
Every breath
Every scent
All of you

Within the arcs of my feet,
The creases of my
Palms that ambidextrously
Hold everything that you
Have left
That was all of me.

I will ensconce you
In the fringes of the moonlight,
And the Sunlight that we
Once trapped between our bodies
As we seal the transatlantic spaces.

Now, I feel how
The immense night exacerbates
Into a night consumed with

Still I can hear
Our hearts laughing,
Our blood rushing
And our sighs billowing.

I can still taste
Your sapid breath.
Your gossamer skin.

Now as I sift
Through this madness,
The austere waves
Of lost love advances

Let them swallow
Me whole,
For I have long kept you
Like a sea
What is left of me.
