Read Poem: stay, by Armando Jimenez

The way you sway
as the day winds away.
Cruising past old memories on the fast lane
through asphalt paved highway
with rolled down tinted windows of our silver grey 1988 Chevrolet Biscayne on this sunny Holy Sunday.
I love the way you play;
explore my carcass, be my x-ray.
You are the blue flame igniting my corpse on the brink of decay.

It is a shame today has came
to it’s length, for me this is the end.

Stuff me with sawdust; lower me onto an unnamed grave.
Forget me and you’ll be better off, okay?
Anyway, yesterday is far long gone, I’m afraid.
As my world becomes dim, I pray you are the last memory I feast on. Imprisoned in my brain, you’re my final prey to fade.

Forgive me, I am deranged!

I do not foresee what I may say!

Please come back, please hold me dear in your embrace. Please, ____.
