Ellie belfiglio

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




She comes alone in solitude and goes with others.

She visits graveyards, cemeteries, morgues and funerals.

her skin is pale against her black robes.

She is beautiful, yet do not stare into her eyes.

Her eyes are like an abyss of darkness that draw you in.

She commands the cold, the kind that creeps up your skin,

The cold, the kind that chills your heart into your bones.

She commands the darkness,

The kind that clouds your still chilled heart,

Darkness that clouds the mind,

Darkness that create nightmares.

She controls pestiferous which sweeps nation like plagues.

She rides a horse, pale as she named pestilence.

Her name is DEATH,

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!"
