I’ve written thousands of words, marked these pages, wept over the ink flowing from my pen, poured my heart out, all for you. Yet you’ve moved on, your heart captured by another left me standing still in time, longing for you, as the day I first met you and basked in your warm eyes. Denied […]

It’s Burning

Do you know, how close you are, to tearing down my barriers, I’m standing here, silently begging, uncover me, release me, renew me. I’m silently screaming out loud, hold me, just, hold me, please take me in your arms have me, now, kiss me, like nobody’s looking, stop making me wait, don’t make me wonder, […]

I Know

I know it’s not my right, turned that down, the day I said no, but the longing doesn’t stop, my feelings won’t go away as quickly as the time it took to walk out your door and walked into the distance. You’ll tell me it’s not my right to yearn for your arms, feel your […]

Entirely Yours

Sometimes I wonder, what would you think, if you knew half of my poems were about you? What would you say? What would you think? To know I’d written love letter equivalents to you? I’ve become familiar with you, I know your cheeky smile, to your serious, contemplating face, to your jokey tones, and your […]

I remember

How’d we get here, to this lonely place where idle chit chat has become the norm and empty jokes about each others lovers are now common place conversations How’d we get here? Don’t you remember, the times we spent over the summer long, lustful conversations taunting each other with promises for tomorrow, all the things […]


How is it possible to lose something, you never had? How is it possible to cry for someone, you didn’t want? How is it possible to feel empty and broken, when I didn’t want him anyway? Why do I lie awake at night, and feel a part of me is missing? Why do I cry […]

A New Morning

It’s as clear, as the daylight in my eyes the memory of our time last night it’s as if I’m lying in your arms head tucked under your chin in an awakened, soothing slumber we lie so still, breathing shallow but whole and warm a glow burns within and no regret lingers despite the surprise, […]

You crept up on me, charmed me, with the softest smiles and endearing care I unexpectedly got caught, though I never meant to, didn’t think it could happen to me… But you slipped in, slowly, and quietly, etched yourself into my skin deep into my soul, close to my heart, swept away by your gentle […]


I’d write long lost love letters, send my thoughts to you through pen and paper, ink my thoughts forever more condemn myself, to you with a hopefulness of young love… I’d embrace you, if I thought you’d capture me whole; and never let go, but I am afraid, fearful of failing, scared of the let […]

Lost to You

I didn’t see it didn’t hear it, never thought it should have though… You’ve crept up on me, taken me whole, loved me, top to toe entirely as I am you’ve loved me whole. I resisted; one hundred reasons and more I struggled against you fought the tide, resisted the current, held my head high, […]
