The Sorrow In My Eyes

written by: Luiz Syphre

@luizsyphre

 

You are the sorrows
in my eyes

for at sunrise
you will find nothing
but darkness

the black I shall reside in
a sum of infinite days
three forevers I'll stay

without your blessings
imprisoned in yesterday

reflecting on your love
in front on me decay

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.
