A Poem by Rustina Elkin

Two Years In Mexico

*

Two years in Mexico,

I watch them come,

And I watch them go.

I wonder what you don't know?

I spent two years in Mexico.

*

My pale skin,

Worshiped the sun like a goddess,

And I bathed in the stars at night.

You'll never know why,

But you just might...

*

Spend two years in Mexico,

Watch them come,

And watch them go.

There are so many things you'll never know,

Until you spend two years in Mexico.

*

I walked the graves,

In time of need.

Sometimes you can faintly hear,

The voices plead,

In Mexico.

*

Bar to bar,

Thought to thought.

This tequila's hard,

I should have not,

Listened so softly,

To the voices down below.

I spent two years in Mexico.

*

I watched them come,

And I watched them go.

The time I've lost here,

You'll never know.

But I spent two years in Mexico.

*

I don't think I'll ever see your face again.

Sometimes I wonder when this pain will end.

I've fought my demons one by one.

I know that I was always the pawn,

And still I'm drawn, back here again,

In Mexico.

*
