My name is Adam and I go by he/him and they/them pronouns. I identify as both Gay and Queer and I love to write poetry. I try to perform at open mics and spoken word slams whenever I can. If you enjoy my work, please give me a follow at @avaroqu!
My poem is about a past a relationship I was in. I wrote it as way to both remember the person and for myself to heal from that experience. I wrote my poem through the course of many nights thinking what I would want to say if I ever had the chance to speak with this person again.
I promise you, it’s true, I loved you.
My rainbow lips flew when it met your
cherry blossom pink, white, and cotton candy blue.
Like a constellation in the night sky,
You guided me like a sailor, how can I even deny?
Without you, I’m like a hurricane without its eye,
You captured me, like a hunter with its prey.
Though, I flew willingly to you each day.
What can I say?
I was a moth drawn to your transcendent flame.
We have no one to blame but destiny.
To your majesty, I knelt,your mark left on my belt.
With you gone, all I have is the memory of you,
you left me feeling all blue,
with no one else to turn to.
