Remember

written by: Luiz Syphre

Remember me beloved
for when you do
that dead star
in the heavens
will glow for us

write your verses for me
as I stain this glass
with my sorrows
and when you do
our phones will flash
and die together
like we were meant to

scream in anger:
“I hate you!”
and I’ll match you with:
“I hate you more!”

as our hearts meet
in secret and shout:
“I miss you so so much!”

think about me, as I of you
for when you do
there will be enough love
for wild orchids
to bloom in winter!

hold that contorted face
as my profile you see and
we will hold hands together
with our funny faces and
walk into oblivion

shed a tear for me
as I for you
for when you do
an unstoppable flood
always follows

keep it up, as I have for you
and if you do
we will have enough sorrows
to swim into the middle
of our sea of tears…

In the next life

REMEMBER

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.
