November 21, Poem

By: Dawayne De Rios, Reporter/Editor


I was swimming in your love

OH! It was majestic and fitting

Surrounded by the calmest seas

And embroidered in gold.

OH!! Your eyes, I drowned in them

Your hands against mine

Everything was fine

Calamity and love

That is what your embrace felt like


I was swimming in your love

OH! Your smile i longed to see

As your lips caressed my mind

Into believing we’d be forever

OH! Your words were twisted 

Yet I was blinded by your beauty


Then came a time when I realized

I wasn’t swimming in your love 

I was drowning in your lust

OH! Yet I loved it
