Mind Torn #poetry

Photo by Valentina Remenar Mind Torn by Alejandro N. Marrero 8/8/2020 Consumed by noise or even worse the unspoken between the lines constant silenceWhen I’m in a mood where they disperse like waves on distant uninhabitable islandsThere are rivers of emotions that flow down each steep and drenched troubled hillsideDays that are endless with people…

Poisoned Air #poetry

Poisoned Air by Alejandro N. Marrero 7/23/2020 There’s a vapor in my lungsSometimes it’s weak most times it’s strongI fear death less than mostIt’s only because I understand the destined coastI put poison on my skinIt keeps the bugs away on humid windsYet it will kill me slowly if used everydaySometimes I wonder why we…
