I wonder what could come of us

if there were more time

if we held more patience

If we loosened our tongues with love

instead of darts that led to regrets

What could come of us

if we pushed through

you owning your flaws and

the parts you played as the cause

if I managed my temper and tone

used my words more wisely instead

of playing the blame game

oh what could we be

without all of our past heartaches and pain

without bondage and chains to others

without ties and lies

could we be

without one another

no more you and I

no us, no we

would we apart, survive . . .

Alone

Because I

Can’t seem to

Disconnect relationships from lust

Every time something seems to

Flourish I push away and stop

Growth.

Happiness is all

I really want and

Joy seems within reach, but there’s pain

Kicking in the shadows

Life…

What could of come of us

if we pushed through

you owning up to your flaws

and the parts you play as the cause

if I managed my temper and tone

and used my words more wisely

Instead of playing the blame game

instead of pointing fingers

oh what would we be

without all of our past heart aches

and pain

without our bondages to others

without many pestering negative thoughts

could we be without

one another

no more you and I…

You became a habit I didn’t think

was bad at all

now I’m stuck on day 10

trying to make it to 21

and you’re starting all over

when my feelings have gone numb

don’t toy with my feelings

just because you’re unsure of your own

you tell me you love me

and try to convince me of how much you care

but in my true time of need

you weren’t there

you wanted love

and got trust and honesty too

said you needed space, time to think things through…

Poetry Post 1

So I’ve decided I’ll post one poem per week. Simply to get into the habit of sharing my feelings and thoughts in another form other than a journal entry or blog post. Most poem posts will not be titled or in its completed form only a snippet of it. All poems will make-up a preview (if you will) of what’s to come. Please feel free to comment and/or give feedback. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings, as most of us encounter similar situations and can be of support of one another. I hope you all enjoy. Be well. Peace!

Thoughts of You

Continuous thoughts of you
nothing like the others. No daydreams of
you and me forever. No thoughts of
wild sex or someday a family together. Just
the joy and sweet torture of an innocent
crush not acted upon. The essence of our
last meeting, that I … did not over think or
label as a date. How time ended with a
sweet tender passion-filled kiss. Although Continue reading
