i am the one #poem #STRAW zine #featured

My Dear Readers,

I am delighted that my poem  “i am the one” was featured in the STRAW zine, a London based magazine, which launched its website today.

Thank you for the love and support you’ve shown me since I began blogging!


i am the voice of your past loves

dressed in roses at the altar of your dreams

i am the one you’ve never had

my soul flows from the tears of the Nile

from the hands of children who still beg

through ruins, darkness, and deep pain

through wars which they will never understand

i am the last who will be saved

for i have sinned under the shadow of your cross

when Spanish fountains cry in the sunset

in which Garcia Lorca once was killed

i am the feather of a gold macaw bird…

  1. Good morning. Bravo to you Lady G. This poem deserves such praise and recognition. As do you. You are a remarkable writer and poet, one of my favorites here in WordPress (but I assume you already know that). Perhaps, one day I will have the priviledge of reading your longer works. Until then, and even after I do read them, I have no doubt I will continue to be your number one fan.

    1. Good morning, my dear Drew!
      Thank you so much for your high praise.
      You are one of my best supporters and I have no words to thank you for that.
      “my longer works”? My novel may be ready in 3 years!
      I hope we will remain good friends so you can read it 🙂
