Poetry – Poesía: The Poetic Love Story of a Goth | La Historia en Verso de una Chica Gótica

ENGLISH

The following series of twelve poems can be found in my book of poems Caribbean Poet. Their translation/modification can be found in my second book of poetry in Spanish titled Poemas Caribeños. The series itself is titled The Poetic Love Story of a Goth.  It’s been described by some as haunting, enchanting, loving, romantic, depraved at times, and beautiful. I hope you feel the same way. Thank you for reading.

Poem: The Poetic Love Story of a Goth

Selected Verses:

Postscript On Gothic Red

Gothic Red –dressed as an imperial princess
whose eyes dawn with grayish blues…
Wear your native dress and crimson gloves
to veil your gentle pale-white skin
and freckled constellations born east of Berlin…

~ ~ ~

And such were the professor’s dreams:
illusions and fantasies of the mind
–yet compelling enough to create the world
of Gothic Jill…

…The Philosopher opens his eyes
and stares at the smears & stains
on his pillows & sheets: soot & tar.

Poem: The Poetic Love Story of a Goth

Selected Verses:

GothTombstoneRequiem for a Gothic Dream

Within the deepest confines
of my mind, you plumed
and branded gothic signs
that bled me, leaving me entombed.

You left a requiem for a dream:
my arms groping in the mist
of a pallid phantom’s scheme
whose kiss I did not dare resist.

Poem: The Poetic Love Story of a Goth

 

Selected Verses:

 

To Bed Without Gothic Jill

Sea green bluish eyes…
piercing through the bedroom window
dazed by the sea of empty glass
penetrating the darkness of the cold night sky.

Sea green bluish eyes…
anxiously expectant
catching glimpses of gothic ghosts
wishing they were the sunrise amber of glowing embers.

Poem: The Poetic Love Story of a Goth

Selected Verses:

Jill’s Ghostly Gothic Eyes

Bright gray ghostly eyes
draped in black, proclaiming
over frightful midnight skies
my chronicle of a beautiful haunting.

Do you feel me tremble
with horrid lustful love?
Can you feel me tumble
like a panic flustered dove?
