Gothic Jill’s Morning Face

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Her flushed pale face
reflecting in the mirror
awaits the shadowed trace
of Revlon lip color.

Ghostly beauty in the shadow
of mascaras, lipsticks and liners.
Sensuous borders that follow
each morrow –her facial framing twiners.

My fingertips run
and smear her tar-lined eyes.
My tongue, her lips: depraving fun
concocting my demise

with geisha-like temptations
subdued by powdered passions.

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


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.


La siguiente serie de doce poemas se encuentran en mi poemario titulado Caribbean Poet (en inglés). Incluí su traducción/modificación en español en mi poemario Poemas Caribeños. La serie como tal tiene como título: La Historia en Verso de una Chica Gótica.  Algunos la han descrito como embrujadora, encantadora, amorosa, romántica, depravada en ocasiones y bella. Espero que sientan lo mismo. Gracias por leer.
