Exposed


To be visible Free of my wrappings Shed the thick hardened skin Naked soul Exposed Soft spots oozing Everything Melting in arms willing Revealing the unseen Dropping the armor Letting the cuts bleed The energies bubble Showing what I can’t see... I’m ready! © 2019 Maricel Jiménez Peña

Amuse-bouche


De entrada una ofrenda inesperada Una seducción de sabores y texturas... Colores Sensaciones familiares y primerizas Dulce con sal y pique mariposas, flores y hormigas Sensaciones mutables Sensaciones vivas Un instante glorioso y sin despedida ©2019 Maricel Jiménez Peña

Temporary


I suppose it means I’m healing if I can dream again My heart seems resilient But I wonder just how much Rubber bands stretch Silks tear Bones break Hearts shatter Feelings fade Everything is temporary. Copyright © 2015 Maricel Jiménez Peña

Storm


Perhaps the signs are pointing in the opposite direction Perhaps I shouldn’t be here Perhaps I shouldn’t have come Seems like uneven territory Quicksand, boulders, and landmines A breeze that panics and changes direction A wobbling path to a storm And here I am, right in the middle.

Hoy


Hoy tengo ganas de versos de escalofríos melancólicos y penumbras del corazón Hoy sabe a poesía A momentos de sonrisas y sal Hoy ya se acabó Copyrights © 2015 Maricel Jiménez Peña
