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




Oh, the night is dark with its long and empty roads.

And this life of mine is stranded in its colds.

And swaying in wind whose “raving voice” is unkind;

Like the thoughts of your goodbye that are howling in my mind.

The moon barely glows behind the clouds in the skies.

Her light is shining dim blue and pale.

My dreams barely glow behind the tears in my eyes.

A blur in this world without you they fail.

And oh, how many times didn’t I call your sweet name.

Don’t despair you said, it’s all a silly game.

The trees whining along with the wind;

An end to their battle that is their plea.

My heart is pleading for the day to begin;

In a new world when it can be free!! …



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!"
