Biography of Annabel Cruz

I started writing poetry while I was still in college and although the content of my poetry has changed quite a bit (not as much angst and broken hearts) , my style remains much the same. My favorite poets are Margaret Atwood, Marge Piercy, Maya Angelou and Pablo Neruda, to name a few.

A Sleepless Night

When you sleep so soundly
I lie awake watching you
And I cannot remember
The night’s embraces
Soft and soothing
Like a boat floating
On gentle water
Kisses that are a shot
Of brandy, burning the stomach

[Hata Bildir]
