I live in UK, originally from Nicaragua. I enjoy writing poetry and songs as a form of story telling whether from a personal experience or about situation/characters I find intriguing. Poem Blog: http://poemasadrianadiaz.blogspot.com/?m=1 Music: https://m.soundcloud.com/adriana-diaz-rizo
I Am the Person You Will Always Forget: I am the name that crossed your lips Without meaning, without thought. I am the person you will always forget. I am the face your eyes once saw. They passed me by, but never lingered. I am the person you will always forget. I am the distant voice calling your name. You are unreachable and I am unheard. I am the person you will always forget. I am the person you go to when it’s dark. Yet when you shine my dear, I’m forgotten, Invisible, unnoticed. But I will no longer be that person you always forget. No longer invisible. No longer unnoticed. I’ll be the one haunting thought that’s filling your head, The one memory you’ll look back and always regret, The person who is gone and you’ll never forget. --------------------------------- I Once Made Sadness My Home I once made her my home. I would go there every day. I memorized the cracks on the walls, The shadows dancing around flickering lights, The water leaking through the floor. I took a walk through haunted hallways where I hung portraits of childhood wounds, memories of past heartbreaks, mementos of loss and regret. But like a child who outgrows her clothes I no longer find comfort in being there. Since then I've moved into another house where sadness visits me instead. Knocking at my front door, I receive her as an old friend. I open the door, extend my arms and give her: A few minutes, a few hours, sometimes a few days. We talk about new heartbreaks and past wounds that still ache. We also talk about lessons I have learned along the way. As she listens, she helps me heal slowly with each passing day. And then when there's nothing left to be done and nothing left to be said, the time comes to say goodbye to sadness, till we meet again another time, another day. ------------------------------------------- I'll Walk Away, But I Won't Go That Far: I walk into the room and I see a thunderstorm coming. Because I see you’re angry and you know I’m there. You start shooting at me your spiteful words And I start crying, but you don’t really care. I walk out knowing you’re the bad guy of this movie, But you’re so good at putting up a pity show. It is always the excuse of what you’ve been through When you say you’re sorry for the words you throw. All I know is you’re the constant reminder of a heartache, And the reason why we are drifting apart. Does it make you feel better to see my heart breaking? Because you know I’ll walk away, but I won’t go that far.
