Senam is a Poet….


I used to write poems. Everyday.  At one point in my life I filled an entire notebook with haikus. Words have always called to me. Word have always told my story and healed my hurts. Today, I dug up an old email address and found these poems I wrote more than ten years ago… I’ll publish them here… And I’ll hold them in my heart to remind me… of me.
Centomental

i believe in love
my love is too
sanctified to have thrown back on my face

i struggle by day
and sometimes lay awake at night

i pray for strength
wondering if you ever wonder
if my skin is still soft

Tonight i wished i was one of your poems
strong syllables curled in your throat
words you sweat over
i wanted your first and last words to be me.

But still i get lonely between the commas

poems
crawl into bed with me
wrap themselves around my legs
insistent that they get written
The words more consistent
than any man has been

i wish this wasn’t my story
