2 new poems/writings by HilLesha O’Nan : “In Patagonia” & “These Walls”

in Patagonia

     With eyes
like the emerald mines
     in Patagonia,
I set afoot on your trail
  only to be led on
to the flames
and you watched
as memories burned away.
   You walked away
as if a heavy burden
was lifted from your shoulders.

Forget all of the handwritten letters
   and poetry,
promising me Utopia.  They
were only words written on paper.

   Wasted ink and time,
there will be a day when our
    paths cross.

I may recognize your face,
but I will not remember your name.
I'll walk away as if I
     never knew you.

These Walls 

Put this sledgehammer away
   I have to build these walls. 
that were never meant
                  for you
                 to climb
    and see the real me

     In the past, 
I revealed too many truths
    to people
Who never took the time
     to see
the real me

So I put the sledgehammer away
        You want to
     the real me.
