MY GARDEN

Written by Romeo Dellavalle.


Silent, dark and cold I am
To the outside that knows not
The glow within my shell
Trembling with a secret
And the immortal self,
My interior self...
I spill over sometimes
Or leave gate ajar
And feel you peeping in
To my world-less garden
Where I keep my flowers
In vast array and alive...

AN IMAGE

Written by Romeo Dellavalle.

Traveling by day and by night
The shadow of a promise made
Daring not to move within sight
Behind and ahead of me, all the same...
Poetry man or private eyes?
Staring like a statue nowhere
As if some other were inside
Beguiling attention elsewhere...

PLEASURE

Written by Romeo Dellavalle.

Under the blanket
Of a summer night
Hypnotized by the moon's light
And possessed by the ocean's breeze
Above, a jealous bird flying free
While below two souls
Emerged into one body
Giving explanation to nobody...
My starving and shaking hands
Voraciously redrawing
Your body in the sand
With plenty of passion and lust..

Here, I am with the woman I thought lost
Finally together without pressure
Captivated by the magic of pleasure,
And joyfully lost in another dimension...
Breaking all the rules without exception...
