When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…




I shall, if you lend me your tear

Shed it for you my dear.

I shall, if you lend me your touch

Caress you and much.

I shall, if you lend me your leg

Walk for you everywhere, with my leg.

I shall, if you lend me your sweet song

Sing it for you, I don’t make it wrong!

I shall, if you lend me your mind

I think all your problems that you have lined.

I shall, if you lend me your manly lips

Drink wine of grapes, take many sips.

One thing you shall not lend me

That I want the most, to be free.

I shall, if you lend me your love

Find freedom, something that is above.

Every knowledge that you have and know

I need them so badly though!! …




Author: elliebelfiglio

I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"
