Many of you don’t know that I am a Poet, and poetry is and always will be my first love! I enjoy writing books, but nothing warms my heart more than a free verse or rhyme. In fact, I have three unpublished Poetry books that I someday hope to get out. Until then, over the next week, I’ll be sharing with you some of MY favorite pieces that I’ve written (I’m aware that my poetry is subjective). I hope you enjoy them just as much as I did writing them!
For twenty-six years my love sat on display
and I watched as each person passed me by
Suddenly things changed, when he looked through the windowpane
and purchased the love no one wanted to buy
Like two small kids we linked up hands
and chased the other til we grew tired from all the fun
Like magnets our eyes met and we kissed without any regrets
as we laid marinating out in the sun
As the sun glared down and kissed our skin, we searched for the nearest shade
Rather than rest under the old oak tree, he sought refugee within a dark cave
Like trees during the winter solstice, his leaves began to change
and the love that lit his fire for four months, was slowing losing its flame
Not satisfied with his purchase, he went to the store demanding something be done
but there wasn’t anything that they could do, because of the store’s strict policy on “no refunds”
No matter how good the love made him feel, or the need to have it in his life
He grew tired and it was no longer wanted, because it had satisfied his temporary delight
No matter how much you love someone, make sure they feel the same way about you. If not, you’ll find yourself crying over something you thought was to “last forever”, when it was meant to be enjoyed for a “little while”.
Until next time my NOTE takers!
