Poetry On Odyssey: Our Little Game

This time around, I won't let you get the better of me.

Poetry On Odyssey: Our Little Game

Your expressions when you feel

someone looking in your direction,

all those little antics you pull

just for the sake of attention,

how you pull away after intimacy,

all these couldn't be any more obvious.

I spent my youth trying to heal

your twisted disease with everything I had,

but failed to realize that you're long gone

and no longer within my reach.

There's nothing in the world I could do

to convince you that I'm still worth it.

You're no muse,

you're a succubus searching for fools like me,

pretending to love them,

draining them dry and then throwing them away,

just to break their wings

and use them as your crutches.

I often wondered

if you have a shadow of warmth

and conscience inside of you,

and how it feels like to have

a bountiful collection of

broken hearts underneath your feet.

You told me once that

life is such a chore and

everything is just temporary,

and I'm just a little game

which you will win everytime,

whether I like it or not.

This time round,

I won't let you get the better of me,

I won't be your sacrificial lamb

on the altar of your entertainment.

For what you did previously,

it's time for you to pay the price.

I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
