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.

Ashes

I’m surrounded
By your ashes
Once cherished relics
Now cluttering my home
A layer thick as soot

I will bury you
In plastic bags and shoe boxes
On the top shelf, hall closet
Behind the worn blankets
And faded sheets
Where I can’t reach you

Then I will be rid of you
A passing madness
Cured
Long last.

[Hata Bildir]
