I’m back to share with you some angsty love poetry from Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmol‘s bilingual book of poems, Elusive Loves/ Amores Esquivos, which was released in 2015.
In the first post of this four-part series, I mentioned that these poems journey through romantic love by approaching the cycle through the perspective of seasons.Â We’ve already explored the giddy wonderment of fresh love, in Spring, and the intoxicating passion of intensifying love, in Summer.Â What happens when the bonds of connection are tested?Â What happens when the passions can’t mask the challenges?
Today we journey into El OtoÃ±o (Autumn) with Tell Me/ Dime…
And in English….
Hope you enjoyed.

I tell you.
Maybe you have not really put me in the past and seek me as a wish for a possible future.
I love how this piece changes in tone from poetic lines to raw honest hurt. It’s like listening to someone slowly break down into tears.
Oh my gosh… yes. that’s a great description.
Thank you so much! 😀
I love the honest hurt of this poem. Thanks for sharing.
It is quite poignant. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
