A Brief Introduction To My Thoughts (I'M Smiling, Darling, Not Whining) - Poem by Lou Embalsado

Hi. The name is Lou.
Born in the land of the new moon,
raised in the Pearl of the Orient.
My Grandparents as my Parents,
My Parents as my Grandparents.
An outcast in the family,
treated like dirt, seen as a microbe.

Indie kid with an emo flare,
Teenage Angst mixed with cofee,
bitter love mixed with honey.
I am the posterboy for,
The wannabe Lovers,
daydreaming players,
online gamers and Star Trekkers.

I am a Biblebasher,
if there is a Bible to bash.
I am religious,
if there is free juice,
and food,
I Praise the creator,
of these fine cookies.

I am the assistant of the Vice Mayor of Looserville,
The servant of lovers,
the lover of servants.
My Lips are ready,
and steady,
my forehead is sweating,
My eyes are red and crying.

My bestfriend is the pen,
My lover is the paper,
and my room is my South of the Border.
I write poems for pleasure,
and I pleasure myself with poems.
Caffeinated inspirations,
sugarcoated sufferings.

I'm the KIng of this room,
The most renowned poet (in this room) .
My bed is my stage,
inanimate posters as my audience.
I make experiences, poetry.
I make poetry, experiences.

Hi. The name's Lou.
now that you know what I think,
I pray this won't be our last conversation...
