Dawn to Dusk

written by: Luiz Syphre

Thus at dawn she was his sun and blinded by her light,
he turned himself over completely to her will.
Body, mind and spirit. All.
He did this and thought 'this is a good thing.'

By dusk, her fluorescence was larger than life!
So large, that it covered him completely.
Body, mind and spirit. All.
He felt this and thought 'this is a good thing.'

However, she fulfilled her will upon him to walk away and disappeared into the curvature of his world...along with the warmth of the sun.
Then, the darkness came from the horizon and slowly devoured him!
He slipped into the black and blurred into nothingness.
Body, mind and spirit. All.
She saw this and thought 'this is a good thing.'

I immigrated to the states from Mexico at age 12 and I quickly fell in love with poetry after my grandfather read some of his poems to me. However, at 18, I had a young family and that left very little time for this endevour as I started working to support us. I returned to adult school to finish my diploma. At that time I developed a severe depression that I still struggle with to this day, but I found it to be a great source of inspiration as well. Today I live in Los Angeles and I'm divorced. I have two children I see whenever possible and two adult kids. Both my Grandfather and his brother are award winning poets and journalists, with one, (Bartolome Delgado DeLeon) having a street, library and a prestigious national poet award in his honor.

Most of my pieces come from personal experience and true to me. Sometimes my material is raw, other times murdeous, and yet other times romantic, but always me, 100% authentic guaranteed.
