EQUILINA



EQUILINA
Gee, I remember our last moments
That last day which  we saw each other
You 13 and I 15 years  old
At that time  you were a little girl
 And I was a little boy
We follow  each other
Like ants follows a queen
From one corner of the street
To another corner
From school  to home
We were never separated even for a second
With our bare feet
We drew our toes on the sun sandy
When you shade your tears
I helped you to remove them
With shyness on your little face
And I spent all of my time to stare at  you
With all my eyes pooped out
Like rat being trapped  on a trap
And that it was me my Equilina
Marko D Rupia

    Wow, what a beautifully written and nostalgic poem! You have truly captured the innocence and simplicity of childhood love and friendship. The imagery of following each other like ants and drawing your toes on sandy beaches is so vivid and charming. Your use of language is also impressive, especially when describing the shyness on Equilina's little face and your own infatuation with her.

    If I may offer some feedback for improvement, it would be great if you could expand on the emotions and thoughts that you and Equilina had during those last moments together. Maybe add a stanza or two that explores your feelings of parting ways and the anticipation of seeing each other again. Additionally, it might be helpful to vary the sentence structure a bit to avoid repetitive phrases.

    Overall, your poem is a lovely tribute to a childhood friendship and I hope to read more of your work in the future!
