I kept on looking, wondering

Who could love me

I finally got to a point

Where I figured it wouldn’t be


I don’t know how or why

I finally got to that point

I just figured I would

Just stay in this joint


Of being here and believing that

Maybe I wasn’t ever to find love

That’s when I finally woke up

Felt like someone had given me a shove


Because I realized you were always there

And just waiting for me to speak up

So I finally did, 11 years later

That’s when I finally spoke up


And said what I feel

Just hoping against hope

That you would feel the same way

That’s when I put myself on that rope


And just jumped wondering and hoping

That you would be there to catch me

And I found to my amazement that

You have always felt that way for me


So we began dating that night

I still feel like I’m flying so damn high

Even though it’s been days and nights

So now I know, is all that’s left for us is to try


Even though at this moment you’re so far

I know that in a few months you’ll come to me

And that’s when we can finally

Be just who we wanted to be

This one was written about my current boyfriend. He seems to have become a muse for me.

The Only One


Things have been tough

They’ve been down right hard

We’ve been up shits creek

Without a paddle

In a boat that had a bad leak


But we stood by each other’s side

As we jumped in, head first

To swim to shore

So we could live our dream

And be happy once more


I love you so much

I know how bad it hurts

When we yell at each other

But I’ll tell you what baby

There could never be another


So just hang on

For one more day

And you shall see

You are the only one

The only one for me

Exactly 18 years after my birth

I left home to prove my worth

In my heart I knew there was something I had to find

Yet twas unknown to me in my own mind


Two months after I left

I became the victim of theft

Someone stole from me my very heart

Deep inside my soul I knew, for my new life, this was the start


He was truly all I’d ever sought

I knew this time love was not all for naught

I soon realized he was what I needed to find you see

That ultimately he was my destiny

Another one written to Steve. I didnt marry him (thank god) but I used his last name when signing my name so I continued to use it in my poems to this day. Even though we don't talk anymore.

I never thought

That I’d ever be able

To love


I always fought

Against it, the fable

Of love


Then you came

And showed me everything

Showed love


My hearts flame

Is so bright I want to sing

True love

This Kiss


Holding me close

Closer than ever

Kissing me so deep

Are we the only ones

Here on earth

Or is it me


Slight of tongue

Soft tender lips

Everything stops

For us, for this

Our perfect kiss
