SoVi Jan 3
Whisper words to household saints
Hands pressed, lips closed
We couldn't share them
The words that we couldn't say

Hiding in corners, shadows evade
Sitting on the shelf praying today
Tear and break them
The words that we couldn't say

Games played, in the darkness
Fools we both were that day
Confess it's too late
The words that we couldn't say

Mistakes littering the tile floor
Glittering shards that impale us
Time to end this
The words I just have said

Inspired from Cowboy Bebop OST Song Words That We Couldn't Say
SoVi Jan 1
My dog just passed away, unexpectedly
In the middle of a hot summer night
It was lying on its side, right next to me

I carry their body, inside my arms
As I look for a big old apple tree
So it can eat apples in heaven

I have all their blankets and toys with me
So that they do not get bored as they
Travel towards the shining bright stars

I still remember their white ears
As I scratched their head as we played
As such memories . . .

To late to give one final walk 'round the block

Such a beautiful morning, with birds singing
As I carry my friend in my arms
I wonder if they're singing them goodbye

Cars are driving by, as I cross the street
Is the black and red blob I see a dead cat?
I wish I had more arms to bring them along

Remember when I first brought you home
You hide underneath my bed
As such memories . . .

And when I gave you your first biscuit
You ran around in circles at my feet
Such a sight . . .

The sun shines brighter as you get heavier in my arms

We reach the cemetery, and right at the entrance
There's a big old red apple tree
I lay them on the floor as I dig

The pile of dirt keeps growing, as I am sweating
I want to make sure you don't dig yourself out
You loved to dig in my garden

When the hole is big and deep enough
I lay your body inside
With all of your belongings

I mark your grave, with your collar and leash
So I can visit when I leave school
I don't want to forget your name

I still feel you on the right side of my bed as I sleep

Fly Away
SoVi Jan 1
Eyes ahead
Foward and dead
I am unsure of the path I am taking

Hands up high
Reaching towards the sky
Fingertips brushing the morning light

Frizzy hair
Dew on the edges
Blocking my perception of the world

***** feet
From walking on the street
Guided by the cement sidewalk cracks

Mouth agape
Words suffocate
Uneasiness building inside my chest

Fly away
Run before its too late
Better to be hurt than to be caged

Call Me
SoVi Dec 2021
It's a turbulent life you have lived
Past is snipping at your heels
As you run past the pain
Remembering all the deceit

Call me when its time
To come home and hold you
Take my hand
And let me guide you

Call me when you know
How to care for yourself
Ease my mind
Take care of yourself

Call me when your memories
Are no longer a maelstrom
Of confusion and lights
But a kaleidoscope

Call Me, Call Me
Call Me when you remember
What you want from life
When you figure out
'Who am I?'

See You Later . . .
SoVi Dec 2021
I walk down this unknown road
But I am not afraid
Of the dark or silence that follows
So I keep walking forward
Arms swinging by my side.

With my head turned
Turned up towards the sky
As I welcome the sun's rays
And the rain that falls
Bathing me in its life.

I've traveled far and wide
But never by myself
This is a new experience
It's a little bit scary and new
But I am not afraid.

The stars twinkle brightly
I remember your eyes
Reflecting back on the memories
Happiness and sadness
I'll hold them in my heart.

Whistling the songs
That you sang during dawn
As we eat breakfast and laughed
Such vivid noises and sights
That I will dream as I travel.

I know this may seem unexpected
But I need to leave the past
So don't be afraid
This is not a goodbye forever
I promise I'll see you later.

Enemy
SoVi Dec 2021
The misery
Ridding up my skin like a disease
The sympathy
Screeching up my ears, till I can't hear
The enemies
Following me but I can't seem to see

My energy
Displaced and diverted for survival
My happiness
Nonexistent since your appearance
My appearance
Don't matter cause I am the baddest batter

I swear
I'll never  be an angel or a saint
I promise
That you will forever rue this day
I expect
Everyone I see to be my enemy

Hiatus
SoVi Dec 2021
You walk away
For a day
For a month
For a year

You say it's okay
It's a faze
It's just for a day
It'll go away

Then you realize
In a moment
In a blur

That you have forgotten
Abandon and ignored
The words you've penned
The poems you've cared for

Now you have returned
To a familiar place
With a different face
The time has come
To end the hiatus



© Sofia Villagrana 2021
It's been a long year. My passion for poetry was nonexistent due to COVID and school. But it has returned (even though I am busier than ever LOL). I don't think I'll have the same drive for poetry as I did before. But I'll still be writing.

Secrets of My Life
SoVi Jul 2020
There is an ache in my heart.
I wish I could go back in time.

Inverse of colors that remain the same.
Yet the sky still remains in hues of greys.

Do I continue or stop myself?
My soul is indecisive after all.

Not sure if this is right or if it's wrong?
But why do I care if I live or die
Without my soul!

This is the secret of my life
To decide if I can choose
To live or die.

All of these pieces of colors
Intertwine and intermingle
Warp into something more.

Downfall

Downstairs
                Surrounding you
Don't crawl
                Following you

Perfect house  
                Blinding you
Polarising pictures
                Mesmerizing you
Pieces of a lie
                Trapping you

Dissolve Into Nothing
SoVi Mar 2020
Should we dissolve this?
This game we are playing
Jumping these hurdles
It can be exhausting.

Rocking the boat
Tipping me over the edge
Wanting to see me
Succumb to the waves.

Relationship dissipating
Easygoing on temptation
Dissolving my feelings
No surprises at all.

Easy come easy go
No more favors for you
Closing these doors
And ending this chapter.

Music Playing Softly
SoVi Mar 2020
I like to read love and fiction
To escape my own restrictions
I don't know if I can sound out
All of the screaming and crying

Close the door but do not lock it
If they find out they might lose it
Yell at you and grab you tightly
Better to pretend that you are numb

Play the music quite and softly
They won't hear when I pause it
Wanting for that single moment
When they say its time to end it

Yearning for You
SoVi Mar 2020
Hanging 'round your place
Days keep passing.
Sitting here for weeks
But don't worry.

Wanted some closure
Where are you going?

Hope you'll come back
Yearning for you.
Please, just stop and listen
Before the sun sets.

Needed some closure
Where are you going?

Can't you see I'm hurting
Just make me happy.
You don't care about me
Waiting here for you.

Give me some closure
Where are you going?

B.O.Y
SoVi Mar 2020
Heartbeats that sing
Songs of admiration
Eyes that wander
Up and down your face

For once I wish
This wasn't a mistake

I take a breath of air
Let it exhale outwards
My hands begin to shake
Twisting my hair into knots

I want to say words
But they do not escape

Palms are sweating
As I recount
The many things
That I love about you.

Nylon - Reprise
SoVi Mar 2020
Faded like a photograph
Don't want you looking at me.

I don't want to die young
Ignore my pleading
Repeat it enough times
Maybe death will pass me.

Stretched thin like nylon
Something that you see as pretty.

No blanket of security
A fog that fills my vision.
Disappear into obscurity
Waiting for recognition.

Rubbed raw by a cat's claw
Watch me as I keep bleeding.

Want someone to rely on
But you keep on evading.
Stare at me, but looked beyond
Feel myself degrading.

Pulled apart like red yarn
Fragments of me missing.

Reached out to caress you
But saw your body was gone,
Tired of this pursuit
Decided to withdraw.

Feelings like a jigsaw
Don't know if I can keep going.

Rely On...
SoVi Mar 2020
Want to rely on
Someone I like
To lean on

A tidal wave of emotions
Coming over me
Feeling like a deportee

The situation
I found myself in
Lost and dehydrated

I'm the unwilling victim
You act so cool with me
Then change your words

Don't want to break
Your trust in me
But you made me

You showed me
Your not someone
To rely on

For me to truly capture.

Force me to watch
Force me to comprehend

Deep In The Sea
SoVi Feb 2020
Bubbles are forming
As my breath leaves me,
Ripples on the Surface
As I go underneath.

Deep in the Sea

The sand glitters
Pears glistening
Hidden wonders sparkle
Running through my hands.

Deep in the Sea

Blue is no longer blue
Shades of black and purple
Begin to seep through
And confuse my vision.

Deep in the Sea

Calls from creatures
Songs from sirens
Rushing of water
Reverberate inside me.

Deep in the Sea

I lose sense of me
Becoming nothing
Yet still something
As I float aimlessly.

Re-Birth

As I sleep
With Eyes Open
I still Hope
I still Dream

As I fade
Into Oblivion
My Heart Breaks
Shattered and Frayed

I Cried Out

Fragments of Myself
Pieces that are Broken
Do not Form
Do not Unite

Buried in Dirt
I Ache
Severed from Me
I Pray

I Mourn

Crystallizing Scars
My Arms are Weak
Body Weighed Down
Gold Seeping Through

As I Reconnect
I Awaken
To Pain
And Endless Suffering

I Am Outrage

Deberia saber
Que me dejaras

No mas para que ves
Te la estas buscando

Hacimos pareja
Pero te vi alla

Mucho para aguantar
Tu eras mi vida
Pero  la vida no es justo

Era estupida para amar te?
Era tonta ayudar te?
Era ovio a todo lo de mas?

Me calli por tu mentira
Tu nunca me querias

Engañame una y doz veces
Voy a morir en un paradiso

Tu nunca me vas a ver llorar
No hay tiempo a morir

Lo deje quemar
Tu no eres mi preocupacion

Fantasmas de mi pasado regresan
Otro leccion para aprender

Tu nunca me vas a ver llorar
No hay tiempo a morir

siren call
SoVi Feb 2020
i once read a poem
about a siren call
during the night

so as i laid in bed
i stretched my senses
waiting for a sound

would i hear...

stars colliding
imploding on themselves

comets flying
their icy tails crackling

asteroids flying
rotating each other

or will i hear nothing
just silence
from a quite void.

Last First Lover
SoVi Feb 2020
Gave everything you had
To a love you thought would last.

You wanted to be there
By their side till the end of time.

Favors they asked of you
Stretched you thin like paper.

Your calls and messages
Were left on read, unanswered.

You waited for them
As the sun rose and fell asleep.

When you walked away
They decided to plea and beg.

You decided this was it
This will be your last first lover.


You said goodbye
To the person that made you suffer.

Farewell to You
SoVi Feb 2020
Commemorate
When days went by
In tides that were
Harnessed by the moon

Cicadas
Crooning melodies
In the summer heat
Near the riverbank

Straining
To caress my hand
Trying to mend the
Growing divide

Irredeemable
Are those moments
Juvenile woe
Intertwined with hope

Pretentiously
You laugh at me
I smile behind
A facade of Cheer

Exasperated
I ascend from you
Conjure up the will
To say farewell to you

Cease to forget.

Moment arrives
For goodbye.
Yet I remember

A forgotten friend

Snow that falls
Breaths that cease
Hands that freeze
Eyes don't see

Can you move?

From the world
As they wrap
Their hands
On your throat

Can you scream?

For mercy
Salvation and
Vindication
For your dreams

Can you fight?

With your hands
Holding a blade
Aimed straight
Pointing at them

Or will you die?

Final exhale
A sigh goodbye
Hand outstretch
Towards the sky

All Of Me

Skin fade into nothingness
Like butterfly wings
On a sunny day

Our hearts and lungs
Break and decay
Withered away like snakes

My feet are broken
Like sycamore trees
That are uprooted

Like the horizon
When it meets the sea

All of me
No longer seems to knows
What it feels to be alive

Whales sing with delight

Wails that I listen
Discoveries

The hole in my heart remains
But it still beats

Seems our minds are made up
No one dares to speak

Recalling the moments
We dare leave behind

Remember how we embraced
No matter what we said

In a moment of respite

Traces of lost bliss
Belonging to another life

Hesitantly moving on
Memories cherished- lost

Curtains fall on us
Wanderers- moving on

Do you dream of yourself crying?
Does your heartache for more?
Even as I am weeping silently
I can't help but yearn.

I am still silently crying
Reaching out blindly for more
Laughter cannot cure my sadness
I can't help but yearn.

Though I may not be crying
That doesn't mean I want nothing
Chest constricting inside me
I can't help but yearn.

Into oblivion
Illuminating
She exists

Where you sat and laid in

Would it show on my face
Reminding you of this place

Waiting for you to rest
But you are already dressed

I think it is cruel of you
Leave me out of the blue

Blue

Opened like a door
Letting strange people through

Closed the door when it was me
Had me standing feeling so blue

Decided to knock and wait
Shadow of me waiting for a blue moon

Did not hear you sneaking
Under the moon, through the back door

Why did I go to this party?
Knowing you were going to appear

Why did it have to be you?
On the dance floor under the blue light

Realizing I have no right to cry
The reason this pain stays is me

Easier to blame you
For something I allowed to hurt

Decided to leave out of the blue
Since I am just so done feeling sorry

Tell me.

Why do you sing?
Does it not get tiring
Singing to nobody?

You just keep on flying
Straight through the desert
Straight into Midnight

I can still see you
I sadly still hear you
Perched on my windowsill

Let's just make one thing clear
I am not torturing you
I am not the cruel one

Do you think your music soothes me?
I prefer the silence
To your screeches of anguish

Do you think anyone appreciates
Birds that sing by windows
When one wants to be alone?

You just keep on singing
Why do you hate me?
Why do you not leave me?

Tell me.

I want to take a ride away from you
I wanted to escape this life
But now with you, I start to cry

I want to take a taxi away from here
But then my arms get heavy
My heart is out of place

I want to take an airplane into the sky
But my lungs they constrict
Behind eyelids stars shine

I decide to take a taxi with you
But my feet stay in place
I call out for my mommy

Why can I not escape this life?
I said that I will be long gone
Now I am stuck inside four walls
I shake and cry when I have to step out

I wanted to take a ride with you
I saw you as an escape, its true
I never really loved you for you
You were just an ending, not the goal

Devotion not Affection
SoVi Oct 2019
I count the petals that fall from the sky
Walking on leaves that are making sound
Humming a song between you and me
Submerged in wine, it is hard to breathe

Yellow paper tulips I leave behind
Storybooks you crafted by your hands
Mother's red dress found in pieces
Shredded up papers of your words

I wish for once you will listen
See that I am imperfect
Hear me as I start to scream
Save me before I drown in wine

You hate yourself for what you did
I know you felt the pain of my death
Just know that even after all of this
I will choose to be your daughter again

I care about my parents
Because they sacrificed a lot for me
Because they are my support system
Because they shower me with gifts
Because they are my parents

I care about my parents
Despite everything-
The lack of affection
The overbearingness
The neglect
The disdain
The abandonment

I remind myself-
"In spite of everything, I care about my parents"

I wish I could believe that.
