You are a man

Wide as the owl

Your wit and strength

Have not led you afoul


And yet there is so much

You cannot understand

Lots of little things

Your mind has banned


I understand now

What you don’t see

What you never realized

Was simply me


“I didn’t know, I didn’t see”

Are just excuses

This and many more

Have had their share of uses


Where does it end?

When do you awaken?

What do I have to do?

Why do I think your faken’


My love will always be true

But the time is now

To change this cycle

Want to know how?


You go your way

And I shall go mine

It’s time to go

And cross that line


I will always cherish you

We both need new starts

Time to part ways

Simultaneously breaking two hearts

Again, this one was to Paul. This was the last poem before I actually left him. There were poems after I left him but not that many. I now realize that he never got over me. We have been split for around three years now and he still is in love with me.

I know you love me

And I do love you

Ohh so bittersweet

It’s never true


Sometimes the love leaves

How it hurts us so

Ohh so bittersweet

We’ve gone so low


Yearning for the good times

Aching through the bad

Ohh so bittersweet

All we’ve never had


This love isn’t real

Though I want it so

Ohh so bittersweet

Love and let go

Pain Release


I am the walking wounded

My scars displayed for all

To plainly see

It’s clear to me now

That you’ll try so hard

To make me never free


I wanted you, I needed you

To hold me and make the pain

Just disappear from me

Yet now its obvious
The pain came from you

The blood helped me see


I saw my reflection

I saw the girl in me

Broken into so many pieces

I know now I must leave

It’s the only way

I’ll be better as the pain releases

Do You Feel Me?


Here I sit

Trembling and crying

And I wonder why

Inside I’m dying


Do you want me

To feel pain

Do you need me

To hurt


On my knees now

I pleaded and I begged

To stop feeling

To be dead


Do you see me

Here at your feet

Do you feel me

Reach for you


Here I am

Here and now

There I’ll go

Bye and bye


Did you ever know

That I loved you

Did you ever think

I would leave you


And now its over

I’ve taken too much

Nothing will stop me

Not even god’s touch

Walking Today


I took a walk today.

I’m really sorry, Steve,

But I can’t take your shit.

So today I’m gonna leave.

I wanted to love you.

So why’d you make so hard?

You wanted to see me hurt.

Disappointment cuts like a shard.

You never wanted me gone.

Never a moment away from you.

Tie me up and lock me down,

You would if you could, wouldn’t you?

But now you’ve left me.

You’re sitting behind bars – in jail.

And I’m taking a walk today.

Never a moment will I wail.

This one I know who I wrote it about, Steve and why, I was leaving him. We didnt break it off for about another month or two but it still says hpw I felt at the time.

Short Goodbye


I’m leaving today.

To find another someone.

To love me,

Like you used to.


That’s all I can say.

You and I are done.

This end has been coming,

I think you always knew.

This one was written to Steve. Our end didnt come right away but it was still an ending.

I love him truly,

It is still in my heart.

Ever since the day we met;

The day that was our start.


Pain grew between us two,

Growing steadily worse day by day.

I still want to be with him,

Yet sadly, leaving is the only way.


Away from him I shall be,

Even though it will hurt me so.

But it shall be for the best,

Even if my heart does loudly woe.
