This poem (from my book Buried Alive) is  
written from the perspective of a high-
school girl.

Dawne

The new boy from Costa Rica
wrote me a love poem
in Spanish.

Las abejas hacen el amor
                  a los flores
se emborrachan con el nectar
                  y se pierden en el aire.
Podria esta junto a ti
                  hora tras hora.
borracho con tus labios
con mis dedos perdidos
                  en tu pelo.

He handed it to me and left,
the Spanish teacher was out,
I don’t speak Spanish

so his poem stayed in my pocket
where it whispered to me
tender and mysterious
all the way home
on the bus.

  2. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
