Those who hurt the most

Understand confidence the best.

When your heart aches

Turn to those who know your pain.

The saddest souls

Will work the hardest to save you.

They wish only for your happiness

Because they know your sorrows.

A bad day

Life is confusing

Yet also amusing.

Some days, the sky is clear

The next day storm clouds are near.

A smile can brighten a heart

That was dark from the start.

A gesture can ruin

Anyone’s joy.

Sometimes it’s easier to cry

Instead of asking why.

A haiku about you

My inspiration.

My best friend and my soul mate.

The love of my life.


*I go through phases in poetry. I’m sure it isn’t hard to guess what phase I’m in now.*


Baby Birds

Baby birds don’t get scared.

They leap from their perches,

Trusting their instincts will kick in.

My instinct is to be with you.

I have leapt from my perch,

Heart open and arms spread wide.

I can’t be afraid.

I can’t hesitate.

I must trust that I will learn you

And you will learn me.

Whispered love

There was a knock at my window

And a name softly spoken.

Joy consumed me,

For I knew who had arrived.

We talked in hushed whispers,

A wall dividing us only barely.

Our hands and lips were brought together

Sometimes softly

And sometimes with desperation.

When you left, I was smiling

But I wished you wouldn’t haven’t gone.

I yearned for your embrace,

For your protection

And prayed that one day I would have it.

A drumming heart

I though it would be hard

To be away from you.

Instead I was caught off guard

To know we will make it through.

Tougher times are to come.

I can only think of you,

And the way you make my heart thrum

A tempo that is brand new.

Smiles for miles

You are my life,

My world,

And my entire existence.

Yet when I think of you

I only remember

The impending distance.

The fear I feel

Is spread wide

Across the miles,

So I know,

I must have faith

In your confident smiles.

The song about you

The sound so sweet,

A tune impossible to beat.

Keys pressed like finger tips

To your gently lips.

My eyes filled with tears

As I thought of future years,

Ones spent with a song in my heart

And a love that doesn’t part.

Shakespearean love

Our love could have been

The most famous Shakespearean play.

There were evil villains full of sin

And romance that was a tad cliché.


For each other, we would have betrayed the world

But in the end we didn’t need to.

Around him my heart whirled

And that was when our love was new.


I hadn’t imagined the future before me;

One full of lies, stress, and most importantly: Love.

If I had known, I would never have thought to agree

But it seems there was an intervention from above.


Our love was like a Shakespearean play

That continues every day.


**It’s a beautiful winter day, school got canceled, and love is on my mind so I figured I would right a good ol’ fashion Shakespearean sonnet.**

A song of love

I remember the way we moved

And the way the song went,

But my mind has since forgotten your scent

Because I now only feel misused.

I’ve moved on

And hope you’ve done the same

Yet I know I’m still the one you blame.

I’m no longer your pawn

And no longer have my eyes on you.

Rather I’m doing a new dance,

Giving someone else a chance

To make my heart sing anew.
