Rainfall

The rainfall creates

Tears running down the statue’s

Face mimicking pain

 

Sad and alone in

A garden of solitude

Longing for someday

You Are Almost Gone

You are almost gone

And I am thankful

 

Black ink traveling over the pages

Painting my last memories

Of you and me

On the almost full canvas

That is this part of my life

 

I have not cried today

But can feel the tears slowly

Well up in my eyes

Weary with memories

As I conjure the ghost of you

 

Sometimes I wonder

What you may be doing now

If you are well

If you have found someone new

If you think of me

What the thought of me creates in you

 

But it does not do well

To dwell on the ifs

For they are not certain

And should not bind me

Rendering me powerless to

The present

 

Soon you will no longer be a ghost

But a distant memory

The embrace

The kiss

The love

Of another

Will replace you

And the tattered shards you left behind

 

In actuality

It is happening now

 

You are almost gone

And I am thankful

A River of Turmoil

She looks in the mirror

And watches her mascara

Begin to run down her face

Mixed with tears

Creating a river of turmoil

 

Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t

 

She made her choice

She tries

But she falters

When this happens

And she feels further and further away

 

Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t

 

Every night he is with her instead

Is a slap in the face

Bringing a pounding heart

And the poison of jealousy

Running through her veins

 

Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t

 

She feels like an afterthought

Sitting and staring at the phone

Wondering what it would be like

If she didn’t call

Would he think to reach out?

 

Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t

Opera & Moon and Sun

Hello everyone!

I just survived my first week of classes for my final undergraduate semester. On top of that, it’s production week and now performance weekend for my university’s Opera Scenes. We’re performing scenes from Menotti’s The Medium, Floyd’s Susannah, Gilbert and Sullivan’s Ruddigore, and Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. I’m in the chorus for Orfeo, and we’re singing it in Italian. It’s fun being a Fury and Blessed Spirit. I always love performing onstage. After Sunday, this will be my last time participating in Opera Scenes at my university. I’m not sure what will happen in the future regarding the opera scene and myself, but I’ll just see what happens. I won’t stop training classically and will probably remain in the art song scene. That’s where my strength lies. I will also be incorporating other styles into my training and future like jazz and contemporary forms.

Last night’s show went well. Our audience was a bit dead, though and didn’t really laugh at the comic scene. Afterwards, I did have fun going out with my friend G downtown St. Louis to get a yummy adult ice cream drink at The Fountain on Locust and afterward feasting on lasagna. Strange order of eating, I know, but there was a time constraint.

It’s time for me to get back to getting ready and productive with my day. Tonight is Performance #2! My family is coming this time. I’ll see if I can get some of my homework reading Act 2 of Titus Andronicus for my Shakespeare class started before I leave for the show tonight.

Meanwhile, here’s a new poem:

Moon and Sun

The moon draws me in

Illuminating with light

The night’s splendour here

While sun blazes hot

In passionate tendrils there

Possibilities

Both have their greatness

With two I can delight in

Yet with self on guard

Someday

Someday I will rush into your arms

As we reunite after these

Long absences apart

 

Someday the warm sun will heat our bodies

As we recline together

On the sand of a paradise’s beach

 

Someday you will ask me

The most important question

Of both of our lives

 

Someday I will meet you in a white gown

As I walk down the aisle

And towards my newly joined future

 

Someday you will gaze into my eyes

And see the twinkling possibilities

Of the children I will bear

 

Someday our bodies will move together

As our hearts beat as one

Celebrating love and each other

 

Today I will content myself

With the possibilities of

Someday

After a Long Night

Chill winter wind blows

Sending shivers through me as

I long to be yours

 

Bathing myself in

Hot steamy water tonight

Brings desire here

 

I shall fall asleep

Wishing you were by my side

As I dream of you

First Class Blogger Award

After a not-so-happy night’s sleep, I woke up and checked my email inbox as I normally do every morning.

Much to my surprise, I received an email from the First Class Blogger Committee notifying me that my blog has been chosen for the First Class Blogger Award. I’m shocked and amazed by this nomination and am extremely grateful to receive it.

http://firstclassaward.wordpress.com/

It is an honour that humbles me and makes me so grateful to every one of you readers that visits my page. I take a leap of faith as I pour my heart out and express myself through my poetry to share with you. To read your positive feedback and compliments means the world to me.

We are all connected through in this world of turbulent emotions, and finding someone we can relate to and find friendship with is becoming more and more important in this world where individuality and personal achievement is growing in precedence.

Thank you for finding something in my blog to which you can relate. Thank you for listening as I share my heart and feelings with you.

Thank you for being you.
