An Untitled Poem

By Bernice Sosa-Izquierdo

Embrace me like
Elementary school crush
Pure hearts
I got your back, you’ve got mine
Forever.
Like high school sweethearts
Hopelessly devoted to illusions of happily ever after.
Like rekindled pasts
Meeting half-way
Embarking on another journey
You and me: Part Deux.
Like no strings attached
Stand tall, stand strong
Individually and together
Our own masters -
Marionettes have no place here.
Cherish me
Pierce my heart
Return my voice,
Apologizing without warning.
Reach for my soul through deep eye gaze
Beyond unkept face and wild hair
Still seeing ME.
Challenge me like
Child birth lacking epidural effect
Like logic converses with irrational
Like soft deep tones massaging overactive brainwaves
Lulling tension to sleep.
Enchant me like
Surprise Mariachi birthday serenade
Like
Unexpected private Tango lesson
Celebrating anniversary.
Bond with me
In spontaneous cross state drive.
Over wishes made to sunroof sighting,
breathtaking comet shooting star with rainbow tail.
During meteor shower well past midnight
Witnessed on a frigid park bench
Hoodies, goose downs and mist of amazement.
Excite me like
Red moons,
Eclipses,
Romantic snowstorms,
Fourth of July fireworks on the bay before
Getting caught in the rain.
Like 10 days, 10 nights
Jamaica island mischief.
Like 8 day Spain/Italy adventure: 5 planes, 4 trains, 5 boats and countless stories later.
Love me like
Ear on a steady heartbeat,
Warm kisses strategically placed in gentle patterns
Creating unadulterated waves of euphoria.
Like rekindled pasts
Meeting half-way
Embarking on another journey
Like
You and me: Part Deux.
Inhale my testament,
Collaborate with me in word as you do in life
Penetrating me as only you can.
Ride my syllabic rhythm to the base of intertwined hearts
And:
“Remind me like
Bruno and the sweet voice of our son
That, in every way that matters
I am amazing, perfect and beautiful
Like
The secret knowledge we share
That, whether in this life or the next
You would be ready to battle, love and live by my side
All over again
Te Adoro!”

  1. You’ve done it again, you put into beautiful picture words my innermost feelings. And not just with this poem, but with the one before that, and the one before that, and the one before that…
