Poetry, The Wonder Years

Drunken Confessions

silently I listened

to your drunken words

which strangely

reminded me

of what we once shared

but what you asked

I could never deliver,

I have this feeling

your drunken babblings

told more of the truth

than you wished to

share

and your desperate goodbye

filled me with sadness

because it too told

a tale of two

friends who had

slowly grown

apart

Reign of Terror

Abuse

I can see

the pain

in her eyes

he feeds on

her weakness

tearing down her soul

with words

filled with

hate

and eyes

shining with insanity

she fights

his reign of

terror

but only with

words

anything else

would cost too much

I wrote this July 2, 1992 about a very close friend that had an abusive family member. It was originally published on Mr. Taylor’s AP English exam while I was in high school.

Poetry, The Wonder Years

Lately…

lately I’ve been losing control

almost wishing you’d give me

a reason

one reason to let you go

cause

lately it’s been so hard

part of me sees the hope & the light

but slowly the dark side seems to be winning

the battle raging in my heart

I’ve changed

I’ve turned into someone

I never meant to be

Lately

I’ve been waiting for a sign

a sign we’re really meant to be

but the sign hasn’t come

Lately it’s been so hard

I want to be stronger

but lately it’s been so hard

 

I wrote this 3/21/96, a year after graduating high school when my first real relationship was drawing to a close.

I took this on the way to St. Mary’s Glacier in Colorado

promises are always

broken

words are never meant

enemies are always

remembered,

it’s the friends you

seem to forget

time goes on forever

as life passes you

by

you never forget

the pain

no matter how hard

you try

and the times that remind

you of the past

May always break your heart

tears will always fill your eyes

but then a new day will start.

I wrote this 6/12/1992 a mere three years before I graduated high school.

A New Day

Aside
Poetry, The Wonder Years

Since the night you

told me goodbye

my heart has

been empty

feeling no love

feeling no pain

no longer aching

for you

i think the tears

i cried that

night were

the only

emotion left

inside my

blackened

heart

which now is

only filled with

memories

of how i once

felt

I wrote this 20+ years ago when I was a young girl just beginning to find her way in life and love ❤
