Just Another Guy

I was just another guy Who decided to try To see if you were free To possibly go out with me. Didn't turn out as I'd hope The second you went and said nope. Now nearly a year has passed And our bond just couldn't last So now I'm just another guy Who decided to…

Somehow I Don’t Mind

It’s over and somehow, I don’t mind. Even if you do still run through my mind. I can see you and not speak a word. It’s how I know that you’re not my whole world. It still hurts, so don’t get me wrong. It’s why this is sounding like a goodbye song. Never thought this…

Dear Past

You have had your fair share of victories over us. Times that brought us to tears. Nights that we laid awake thinking about the decisions that led us to that very moment in time. You’ve been cruel to us, trapping us in our present at times with flashbacks to what you have done. We have…

Feeling It Still

Just when I thought it was safe to smile again, thinking that I had had enough. You came on back and pulled me in with all your good stuff. The beautiful smile you possess, the angelic eyes that I love so much. Along with that special place in my heart that only you find a…

Shadows On A Cloudy Day

My friends are like shadows on a cloudy day. The efforts are like the rays of a sun. The journey always ends the very same way. So I find myself daily surrounded by no-one. My love returned is like shadows on a cloudy day. No matter the goal of my heart, I always get the…

A New Day

It’s a new day, with new beginnings, new allegiances. Time to lay down all our past grievances. Forgetting the past, forgetting all the failed attempts. Looking ahead and turning weaknesses into strengths. Minds reprogrammed, hearts refueled, and spirits revitalized. Plugging into a second gear to becoming reenergized. Leaving our old selves where we belong, in…

Ch.10: The Blessing

Her father calling me was surprising, but I wasn’t nervous as we had gotten along well at this point. He began by saying, “I know how you two feel about each other, and I have to admit, I’ve never seen her as happy as she’s been since she first told my wife and I about…

Reunion

I’ve written a poem for all to hear, hence I’ve taken centerstage. One that I hope resonates with all of you no matter your age. How I looked forward to these days, any longer I just couldn’t afford. For we know that where believers gather, there also is the Lord. So let us rejoice, for…

Sitting Alone

Sitting alone in my room. An all too familiar scene playing once again. Sitting alone in my room, Without another near me, not a love, not a friend. The tears being held back by only a wall. One I had to build up out of necessity. Otherwise I’d drown from all of them that I’d…

Kissing The Silence

Here I lay just kissing the silence. Even though she's right next to me. If that doesn't paint the picture Of what we have come to be. What once was my life's armor, Is now the reason I can't breathe. Suffocating from this solitude. I hate that I now want her to leave. And so…

No More Love

If I told you to echo the words I speak, would it make them stronger or make them weak? There’s no more love between us, All we ever do now is fight. There’s no more love between us, The clock has struck midnight. Telling me your sorry just won’t do this time. Telling you I’m…

Inside

At midnight, while I lay in my bed, All these thoughts start running through my head. Of a life lived and now forever gone. And yet of another life still to come, only at its dawn. Inside I know that the one that’s been sets to course for the one to come. Inside also lies…

Ch.9: Moving In Together

After we got back from our “christening trip” at the resort, we couldn’t keep our hands off each other. It seemed like every night we were getting more and more passionate. It was amazing to say the least. Still though, we were still focused and determined to find our dream home to move into as…

Picture Perfect

He was walking around outside with his hands framing different stuff when she approached him. What are you doing? She asks. I’m looking for a beautiful image to inspire my next poem, he says. How about the blue sky? It’s so pretty. she recommends. No. I don’t want pretty, he says as he continues to…
