adiós #poetry

the orange sunset when you’ll leave

do not forget to take with you

the boat lost in the vastness of the ocean

in which you kneeled

and swore forever love to me

kisses you painted on my neck

hibiscuses in which you draped my body

the love of Esmeralda for Phoebus

gnostic prayers murmured hugging me

the moment that you leave

don’t say adiós mi amor

for I know well the next sunset

you will return to me

now if you don’t mind, my love

please slowly close the door.

  1. I love all of this…but especially the last two lines…it really closes the poem nicely, I really feel the door closing and everything wrapping up…so well done!
