Please Forgive Me

Can you ever forgive me for what I did? The way I broke your trust I wouldn’t forgive me. I’m sorry I let my feelings get in the way I’m sorry My feelings made things hard for you. When what I feel for you is true, I should never have made things difficult for you….

The Love Story That Wasn’t – II

Part II – I Miss You There’s love at first sight We hear and read about it often. But with wonderment I had a crush on your beautiful voice At first listen And your beautiful smile And your soothing presence And your quiet encouragements Your gentleness I miss so much Is that even possible? Are…

The Love Story That Wasn’t – I

Part I – The Tainted Image You came into my lifeWhen the clouds were darkThere wasn’t a silver lining to be foundMy whole world was bleakAnd everyday was broken,Lengthy and unceasing. You came into my lifeWhen I’d stopped lookingWhen all hope was goneMy heart was numbAnd my feelings frozen,Dead and buried. You slipped into my…

Dead Inside

To not feel a thing To numb myself To not hurt again Those were my aims. A dead heart inside No turmoil in my mind The peace for which I’d strived In a vacuum it lies. No hurt, no pain No feeling uncertain No hope to be crushed No turbulence in my heart. No confusions,…

A Flawed Love

I have never wanted you to give me the stars I have never wanted the moon All I had wanted were moments spent with you Small, insignificant and yet so dear. To wake up next to you To run my fingers on your face Pillow talks as we fall asleep To hold you and be…

I Cannot Make You Love Me

I can pen for you A thousand poems Put together words That speak of what I hold in my heart. I could sing for you a million songs Put out of tune melodies to the depths That words cannot alone express Of how much I long for your love. I could make as many sketches…

Thoughts Of You

My mind is runningThoughts of you flashingIn my mind’s eyeYour smile playing. The gentleness in your eyesEvery time you looked at meThe playfulness in your voiceWhenever you spoke to meThose memories of youSo overwhelming. The warmth I feltJust having you near meYour voice so soothingAlways so comfortingThat spot on your rightAlways reserved for meFrom where…

You And I Can Never Be

I sit here thinking about youKnowing how futile my feelings are Knowing you and I can never be. Do you even see me? And even if you did, What good would it be? Even if you knew how I felt,Where will that leave you and me? Even if you felt the same way I do,…

One Step At A Time To Mend

There are times I feel so demotivated Like everyday is on endless repeat Nothing to look forward to This suffocating emptiness inside me. I want to feel again Find some meaning in my life Every morning wake up to a morning glow Of warmth radiating from the sun. I long to be happy again Smile…

The Illusion Of You

It’s the illusion of you I truly miss The facade that I thought was you The you who doesn’t exist. Every word you said to me was by design A fiction that you beautifully weaved The foolish me believed it all. Who I miss isn’t you It’s the dream that you showed me The scam…

Rain

I hear the rain Pouring relentlessly In the background It makes a soothing sound Pitter-patter pitter-patter As it hits the ground The far away thunder That sounds like a distant roar. With the rain comes memories Of my brother and I Making paper boats Telling each other stories Of adventures The paper boats would have…

Changed

You have no confidence, You’re broken Afraid of being blamed For everything. When things go amiss You’re terrified That everything you do Will go awry. Don’t let anyone Play you for a fool. Your truth Only you can know. Without making mistakes, No one can exist. Your imperfections Aren’t weapons Like bullets To be aimed…

Shaded

When the world tries to break you To throw you into an abysmal chaos of despair Even though your experiences have changed you Although the idealist in you is long gone And a realist has been borne of the hopelessness Remember, the world may be shaded But it’s not yet lost in the darkness of…

What Does It Feel Like?

What does it feel like to be loved, and to be cared for To have someone to whom your feelings mean something? Someone who’ll listen when you’re sad and hurting Someone who’ll not always blame you for everything. What does it feel like to be able to be yourself, To make mistakes and as you…

Homesick

Tears fall in free flow Reasons I don’t know Takes me to another time When I’d fall asleep Crying under my blanket Not a sound I’d make In the darkness of the night Away from prying eyes. I passed my days Lost in a world I’d create Within the imaginations in my mind Or lost…
