Tohnee Torrez- Three Poems


I'll wait for you
The day after
And most likely the day after that.
On the fourth day, I'll just hope
That I can stop caring about
Someone who won't make time for me.

More Burdens

Pills and drink
To stop the flow of thought
and kill this damned headache.
A longing for solace, a prayer for peaceful sleep,
or maybe
just a slug to the brain.

Can we just leave the heavy thoughts?
Carry what we can on our backs,
Make our way to the oasis without
the guilt, the sorrow or the shame.


It's hard to be your everything
When there's only room for one.

You still love him, don't you?

You smile and pretend like you
don't care anymore
but I can taste the tears on your lips.

Tohnee Torrez is a breathing lump of muscle relaxers and alcohol. Multi-musician, poet, hopeless romantic.
