“Books” – A Novel Poem

Words Maria R.

Pursuing a Bachelor’s in Linguistics, Maria knows exactly when her name is pronounced wrong. It’s an approximant guys, you know, the upside down [ɹ]…nevermind.

The Art of Adapting

Takes a little while to master

But when you finally get the hang of it

Who can really stop you after


The Mother cares

The mother cries

Her son was killed  

A part of her died


Walk with me

A Walk Across The Sun

Burn your feet and engulf your soul

You won’t be the only one


A shot in the dark

A Shot Through The Heart

A clear pass

You took a part


The Girl Before

Stood in this very house

She lurks within

And she lurks about


A girl’s violation

By the devil’s hand

Met with justice in

The Garden Of Burning Sand


Shattered beginning

Memories, a haze

Fix the puzzle pieces

Then And Always


Mother and daughter

Father and mystery

Love and Gelato

Romance and Italy


First love

Opportunities gone

Finding closure

Play Our Song
