Scattered leaves with poetic imprints
"Scattered leaved with poetic imprints. My new collection of poetry. Four years already!

words exploded in my head
I said nothing, knowing
their storm would have devastated you
left you more upside down
than you were
when you walked out the door
sorry is a word I never learned
the internal rage destroying my heart

too proud to admit
any fault was mine
I did not get up from the chair
to plead with you from the balcony
I did not run to the station
I thought you had taught me about loneliness
