Love Letters To You
I have been writing for about 7 years though I still consider myself an amateur.
Over the years I have composed over 300 poems and several short essays which are later turned into "Love Letters."
Below is just a preview of my self-published anthology entitled "Love Letters To You" which includes my poetry as well as the poetry of those
that have inspired me, or more simply, just poems I liked!! Enjoy!
We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.
Your voice, echoing in my ears,
With every corner I turn,
I search for your face,
Yearning to touch you,
Wanting to love you,
But you seem so far,
When I need you here close,
Your eyes seem to catch me,
And hold me as we pass,
Only to let me fall,
The moment you are behind me,
Yearning to hold on
easily letting go.
Why canít this be simple?
Whatís really going on?
ďWe need to talkĒ
The words we dare to say
Sting inside like knives
I need you though
I refuse to admit it.
Thoughts of you fill my head
Throughout each minute of the day
But sometimes youíre just so difficult,
I don't speak when you ask questions,
But I hate it when you leave,
Why do I feel this way about you?
Why do I feel like you doubt me?
My feelings are hurt,
Need some sort of support,
Everything seems to go wrong now,
Iíd like to be here to support you but
You canít tell me whatís going on,
So what am I supposed to do?
How am I supposed to react?
I feel as if I love you
Though Iím not sure
Why are things so hard?
Why canít we communicate like normal people?
Why is this killing me inside?
Why? All the questions,
And yet there are no answers.
so he asks her
with a Sierra Leone
on his ring finger
as a teacher's hand
on the ground
it's not your problem.
lets just sit around and not talk
I love her! --I thinkÖwell, ĎI like her a lot!í
and I donít care what anyone has to say about that.
Iíve never felt this way about a girl
my feelings for her are so real, so strong
adorable and sexy!
I want to show her how love should be.
and I donít ever want to leave her.
I just want to enjoy the pleasure of her company.
I could never explain the way I feel when
I'm holding her in my arms as we kiss.
Sheís so beautiful
-from the curve of her hips
-to her beautiful smile. It just melts my heartÖ
No one compares to her beauty and grace.
She needs to be loved
*Note* After a break up, the thoughts that run through your mind are uncontrolable.
unfortunately, I happened to write them down and then made the mistake of showing
them to my ex who took it rather offensively. Jacob, I'm sorry, you have to under-
stand that poetry is the unleashing of one's heart and emotions and a person has
no control over what they feel.*
(the bitch in me...)Last thoughts of us
I need the satisfaction of hearing your voice,
Knowing youíre there;
not Caring about me
not loving me
These pictures i stare at take me back
to what little good times we had.
Iím sorry we lost interest
Iím sorry we gave up
At least now you can have lacey.
At least now Iíll try to be happy.
For a while, you made me happy.
Apparently, you never felt the same.
it was merely a sexual attraction for you.
or so, Iíve always thought.
You just needed someone there,
Someone to love you, and I did.
Now i canít even kiss you or hold your hand again.
Reminiscing the times when our "love" was magical.
When you made my hand tingle
And numb by such a simple touch.
I want to be your friend
I still need you in my life
I need to talk to you.
MORE TO COME!
