It isn’t called love #poetry #poem

Our secret relationship ended

even though it never began.

I fell for you once again

knowing i couldn’t have you.

 

The pain is inside

where no one sees

but you.

 

The tears fall down now.

I am alone

still.

 

You are lonely, too.

 

We discuss

wants and needs.

We talk about vows

and promises to God.

 

We don’t tell anyone

about these feelings

whatever name they have

Just so it isn’t

called love.

I keep feeling

What shouldn’t be felt.

I deny it

At every turn.

 

But there you are

In my happy place

Where smiles grow

And fear runs away.

 

I keep feeling

What shouldn’t be felt.

And I think you

Keep feeling it, too.

My Wounds #poem #poetry

I pick at scabs

reopening the wound

and letting it bleed

again.

 

I will never heal

completely.

I will never feel

whole.

 

I experience love

and experience hurt

with an intensity

unmatched.

 

My broken heart bleeds

with each and every beat.

Do you realize the pain

you’ve caused?

Like Love #Poem #Poetry

The cool breeze is uplifting.

It touches my cheek

and plays with my hair.

Just when i think

i cannot live without it,

it gives me cold feet.

Arms #poetry #poem

I held you once.
I don’t remember.
Fuzzy dreams
Of sand and Chi-Chi’s
Mix with memories
Of me in your arms.
You show me photos
Of lost memories
And of a time
So long ago.
I have hurts
And you have walls.
We lived our lives apart.
Now tentatively,
You and I
Return to each others’
Arms.

Fear #poetry #poem

I fear this is a trick,

this excitement in my blood

that keeps a smile

lingering.

 

I fear it’s just a ploy

to get his needs met

without regard

to mine.

 

I know my fears

are unfounded.

 

I know that i’ve

been hurt.

 

I trust he is real

a man of his word

who sees me as

deserving.

 

I trust he won’t

reopen my scars

and leave me alone

bleeding.

 

I am learning

to trust again.

 

But still, I find myself

fearing.

I just

 want to know you

though I

 can’t feel your skin.

 

Don’t think

 it’s something deeper.

Don’t back

 away from me.

 

I wonder now

why i left.

I wonder why

it did not work.

 

But time

 for me is warped.

And i

 have no mem’ry

Except

 for your kindness

And your

 pure love for me.

 

It all

 could’ve been different.

I just

.  want to know you.
