To Honduras With Love Poem by Ayi Escalona

To Honduras With Love

Rating: 5.0

How could I conquer the loneliness of night
When every spark of burning thoughts is pain
And this heart pumped tears and not blood
Shall I keep on weeping and wait for the wound to heal
Or simply kiss goodbye the footprints of yesteryears.

How could I listen to her laughter
When her echoing joy fades in the distance
Will I survive every brutal slash of silence
Shall I run like crazy and barked at the moon
Or catch the stars and play with the night

How could I see her face
When a wonderful smile is carved
Shall I stare at the sun and endure the blinding heat
Or let the lighting rip the skies
And beg the thunder to yell my longing

How could i smell the scent of her whisper
When every breath i take is stolen by space could I kiss her when im still awake
Dreams.....come.....and fly me to her distant shores
To the land that embraced her tenderness
To Honduras with love.....te amo

How can I conquer the loneliness of night? Something I ask myself quite alot. That one line has still stuck in my heat from your poem. It's beautifully written, heartfelt and the words you used were beautiful. Keep writing.
