Ellie belfiglio

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




… My transcendental lover, ah, the unknown,

my heartthrob friend, will we meet again?

I have murmured your name, I prayed for you.

Will you take me in my lonely hours?

And you, you whispered so softly in my ear,

so soft, almost hard to hear.

“Don’t hasten our union by your hand,

“or you’ll be taken in rage!”

Me, I complied, I waited, I worked toward fulfillment…


… How was it when we saw us before?

Was it sweet, or filled with trembling fears?

What did I do, do you remember?

Did I struggle? Did I submit?

Which did you prefer?

… How will you see me in this life time?

As an old friend, I should think!

You wrapped your cloak around me,

when you gently kissed my lips;

and I did give you a longing sigh!

I will welcome you back with a passionate embrace,

for you see my friend, my lover, my…

Only you, you only can give me what I long for;

not death, ah, no, it had no power over me!

You though, you alone, only you-

have the power to take me home!! …





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!"

  1. Amazing journey in your words dear Poet. Thank you for sharing your words and thoughts.

  2. Reblogged this on johncoyote and commented:
    Please read the amazing words of a talented writer.

  3. I responded to Johncoyote with words of thanks for your work. Such soft – and searing at the same time – honesty. You warrant continued exploration. I have flung “Take Me Home” onto my main space, again violating my haiku/tanka mostly wallpaper. But what’s a house ‘cept for exemplars of note perhaps to enthrall some of my visitors with your words so skillfully imaged.

  4. Reblogged this on richwrapper and commented:
    johncoyote brought this to my attention. Ellie Belfiglio is is a writer and poet worthy of the exploration. “Enjoy” is not the word I would use in commending “Take Me Home,” more like experience the rollercoaster!

  5. Enticingly mysterious…
    Ellie, I love it.

Let everybody be nice!
