T2T Poetry: An Argentine Love Story

Fabian Perez - Buenos Aires, Argentina

A few days before I headed back to the States, I met up with famous writer and good friend, Paul Perry, to shoot an interview for T2T’s “Townie Spotlight” section. As I want to keep creating new and unique ways to share my experiences via Tourist 2 Townie, he inspired me to try my hand at writing a little poetry. Here’s what I came up with on the flight back to New York. Enjoy.

An Argentine Love Story

When I first met her I was lost and confused.

I stumbled over my words and she was so amused.

She opened my eyes to this whole new chapter.

We shared steak and wine over endless laughter.

Dark hair, dark skin she was Spanish and Italian.

Passionate, emotional and made me feel like a stallion.

She’d been lied to, cheated on and hurt before.

I wish I could tell her that she could trust once more.

But I can’t predict the future, I’m only 26 years old.

Maybe thats why right before I left she got so cold.

The memories we’ve shared, I’ll keep with me forever.

From tango to polo to make-out sessions wherever.

We partied all night and danced under the moon.

Her name was Buenos Aires and I’ll see her again soon.

Nos Vemos Hermosa!
