Frustration

This is a poem I wrote on March 16, 2009. It's a poem from the point of view of a person who is frustrated because it seems as if no one will listen to them.


I can't believe it
They're not listening to me again
I'm just so ready
To beat my head against the wall
Until it becomes a bloody pulp
I thin I'm better off
Talking to the wall
Because at least it will listen

From Out of Nowhere

This is a poem I wrote on March 1, 2010. It's about being taken aback by unexpected news.


The news seemed to come from out of nowhere
As it was the last thing I expected to hear
It feels like the wind's been knocked out of me
And I wonder how this could be


Now I must decide what I have to do
In the wake of hearing this unexpected news
Now there are difficult decisions to make
I don't know how long this will take

Forever Love

This is a poem I wrote on March 2, 2009. It's a poem about finding the love of your life and being together forever.


Who knew when we first got together
That we would still be together so many years later?
Who would have ever guessed
That this love we had
And that we still have to this day
Would end up being a love to last forever?

Fool In Love

This is a poem I wrote on February 16, 2009. It's a poem about being in love and being deceived. This was another poem where I was mining emotions and feelings from the past.


I thought I had it all
The best guy and the perfect life
But it all came falling down
When I learned that it all was a lie
And in the end, it turned out
That I had simply been a fool in love

First Time in Love

This is a poem I originally wrote in the early 1990s. When I re-read the poem a few years back, I wasn't happy with how it had turned out. I wrote this version of the poem on March 23, 2009. It's from the point of view of a speaker reflecting on the first time they fell in love.


Once upon a time
In another time and in another place
I had met you
And fell in love at first sight
It was the first time
I'd ever fallen in love
And I hoped and dreamed
That maybe you loved me, too
But in the end
It turned out to be one-sided
It was my first time in love
But it wasn't my last time
In love

Eyes

This is a poem I wrote on December 22, 2008. It's a poem where the speaker is talking about the eyes.


They say that the eyes are the window to the soul
And if you look into my eyes
You may see heartache, confusion, or pain
Or you may see happiness, excitement, or surprise
But when I look into your eyes
I can see into the soul of the one I love

Escape

This is a poem I wrote on March 9, 2009. It's a poem from the point of view of a person who feels trapped in their life and wanting to find an escape.


I've been trapped
In these four walls
I'm trapped here
With thoughts
Of pain and suffering
And I know
I must find a way
To escape
But right now
Any escape
Seems to be
Eluding me
