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




… Where are those angry flames that were in your eyes?

Now they burn my shattered soul.

Where is your lingering kiss-

that at times flew from your eyes…

… Those eyes, the view of longing and want-

today is my home of darkness.

And the one who sang the love song-

had no loving in his heart…

… In the height of hope and happiness-

my hope is in a dark hole.

With all those abuses, my hard heart-

has no hope in this darkness!

… My heart breathed from your sight-

now all burned in angry flames of your eyes.

Burned! I don’t look at my bitter cry,

I weep, I burn, my heart is black…

… Now that I can’t look at your eyes,

my eyes, like a dead candle have no sight.

Unlucky me! My love and hope are darkened!

Lucky the one that your eyes now pursue her!! …

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!"
