Horrible Poems

Poet's Disclaimer
This is not how I feel
  I just seem to have found a knack
for writing about how some people
live their lives and are willing
to accept it in dull or bitter silence.

{mooblock=When You're Sleeping}

I love you when you’re sleeping
Even more when you’re away
But when you’re in my presence
It’s just another day.
Isn’t life meant to be grander
Like Paris in the spring?
Why does it feel like stale bread
And a pocketful of lint?
I realize now what love is
Holding back my truest thoughts
Knowing they would hurt you
And that I’d rather not.

{mooblock=4 More Pages}

I’ve set a goal,
But will that just get in the way
Of being
Of living
Free as spirit.
Or are the muses playing
Games with me,
Making me think
That I must write
4 more pages.

{mooblock=Thank You And I Love You}

Thank you and I love you
Are the only words I need.
These million thoughts that
Used to run my brain
Aren’t needed.
I am rewiring my head
To my heart.
Did I already tell you that?
Well, no matter.
All I really want to tell you is
Thank you and I Love You.

The last page
Why did I ever set a goal
When what I have sought
Has always been here
Your love
Always right here
