Drowning In Your Sea

Drowning In Your Sea

written by: Luiz Syphre



hold me
leave me little love notes
say again ‘forever’
please tell me that you’re mine

kiss me
when you whisper goodbye
and look into my eyes
unmasked with no disguise

go then
gossip how you missed me
like honey to a bee
alone there by the tree

rape me
an always many times
but never leave me lonely
for that’s the worst of crimes

die with me
when the darkness takes me
do it very slowly
there, drowning in your sea

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.
