Your Songs

I still sing the songs you sang

Your favorites that became mine too

They use to make me cry

Now they’re just a reminder

And although sometimes they make me miss you

They also soothe me

And I become fine

Thunderstorms remind me of the emotions I used to feel for you
Strong, loud, proud, and sure

Then came the rains
It too was strong and it overflowed
It hurt, it burned
But I never blamed you
I never felt any bitterness

Like thunderstorms, I was glad though a little sad

That’s how I felt for you before
Now, now it’s more like a normal day

The End

Thank you for the lesson
Thank you for the time
I’ve learned to fall
And then stand tall
I broke my bones
And scrapped my elbow
But I got through it all
Well, what do you know?

I used to hope
I refused to see
Now I’ve discovered the best in me
Happier I am now and soon I hope you will too
I am closing your chapter
Thank you for the laughter
I cried a lot but it was all good
For I discovered myself through the process

Thank you again
I wish you well
This is were we end

I’d like to think he was not a mistake
Only a lesson learned all too well
We talk about the right one but never the wrong man

I jumped aboard thinking he would too
But he left me hanging in the blue
I was over the moon and beyond
While he was nowhere to be found

I cried for help, my heart bled
All my reasoning capacity from my mind fled
He was wrong in many ways
But I saw what others didn’t, or so I thought that day

After what seems like forever, the lesson is almost over
Pieces of my heart I have recovered
I will graduate soon and I aim it would be with flying colors

Someday I will sing my heart out once more
No holding back

Someday I will be able to talk to you like I used to before
Without feeling any awkwardness

Someday I will feel all emotions
But they won’t be all for you

Someday I can smile at you
Look you straight in the eye and tell you honestly I’m fine

Someday you’ll just be another face
Another friend, and that’s okay

Someday I’ll meet the right one
And I’ll tell you about him and I know you’ll support me

One day I’ll really, truly, finally be over you
And that will be soon

No words can say how much I loved him
And no emotions can describe the hurt that followed
I fell hard, fast and almost at a whim
I was so ready that my pride I swallowed

He made me feel good
And we had intelligent conversations
He knew how to put me in a good mood
He was my inspiration

But like most mutual feelings I had
He left me hanging there
Which made me so sad
And wished he’d be here

But I can only hold on for so long
I’ve lost hope that he’ll try
I ask myself how did it go wrong?
I couldn’t find the answer, and so I cry

I have to let it go now
I just don’t know how
Forever in my memory
I wonder if for him I will be

Watch me smile and walk away
I am no longer afraid to leave
Finally realized there is no point for me to stay
No longer holding on to nothingness

It is not easy and the road I take is unfamiliar
Yet I know I’m getting there
It will be over soon
I will be over you

To Be Ignored

He was, is the one
But he would prefer I ignore him
He just doesn’t feel the same way as I do
So I move, away
To someone else, at some place
Yet I can’t help but wonder if he will ever miss me

I held my breath and he caught my eye. He caught me in the midst of a mid day dream

I fell. Oh what can I say? I fell for the man who could never love me back

He spoke words
Inaudible at first
Because I didn’t pay him enough attention

But I like talking to him
Being with him
Because he has a wonderful mind

He’s poetic in many ways
He knows what to say
And when the topic is all on him
He has a way of turning things around

He wants to be mysterious
But in his mysteriousness I find his true self
In some ways, we see through each other
And I am always in awe of his wonderful mind

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
