Pirate

My dad was born by the ocean.
Some times I pretend he’s a pirate.
Always gone, drunk and looking for treasures that don’t exist.
I guess the rough waters made him that way.
So when I hear the ocean calling my name, I go follow my dad.
We catch up on all the years that have passed us by, right there on his sunken ship.

Rubi Sotelo

My name is Rubi, I’ve been writing since I was 13 years old. Writing has been a form of therapy for me while going through traumatic experiences. Most of my poems speak of substance abuse, relationship abuse, thoughts of suicide, and self worth. My darkest moments were when my poetry blossomed. I hope that they are enjoyed with anyone who has ever been hurt before and can relate to the somber music in my heart that I pour into your cup. Cheers!
