Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be

Poetry

Nothing Else

I don’t want to
Understand
Another soul

I don’t want
Another man’s
Hand to hold

I don’t need
Anything
More than this

I didn’t know
Chemistry before
Your kiss

I don’t want to
Start at
The beginning

I don’t want
To lose us
While we’re winning

I don’t need
Romance and
Butterflies

I didn’t know
True love
Until your eyes

I don’t want to
Be less than
You deserve

I don’t want
Ever after
Fairy tails

I don’t need
Fancy nights or
Jewelry

I didn’t know
We would be
Everything

I want to
Make you happy
Forever

I want this
You and me
Together

I need
Us to last
True and true

I know
What love is
Because of you

Insecure Space

There’s a space in my mind

Where my insecurities lie

I keep them all inside

They taunt me sometimes

There’s a place in my soul

Where my insecurities go

They travel lonely roads

Where I’ve been before

There’s a space inside my heart

Where my insecurities start

They lay there in the dark

Trying to tear us apart

There’s a space in my mind

Where my insecurities lie

They say you’ll change your mind

And you’ll leave me behind

There’s a place inside my soul

Begging you not to go

Filled with sadness I have known

Without you I’m alone

There’s a part inside my heart

That’s fighting with my soul

And the insecurities of my mind

They’re tearing me up inside.

Roll Of The Dice

The love of my life

Sleeps in front of me

And I can’t help but think

“I’m so lucky”

All the years before

Were empty

And out of nowhere

He found me

I always thought

“I know what love means”

But everything I looked for

Was never as it seemed

Now the love of my life

Sleeps in front of me

And I can’t help but think

“I’m so lucky”.

You Never Know

I never would have picked you

You never would have picked me

We were both looking for something

Neither one of us could see

I never knew this could happen

You never thought it would again

Being with someone who makes you happy

Everyday spent with your best friend

I never knew I was incomplete

You didn’t know what was missing

Waking up isn’t the same without you

Your lips were made for kissing me

I can’t see my life without you

You don’t say it but you feel the same

I’m going to love you forever

Even after you change my last name.

REWARD

His scent on her clothes
His warmth on her skin
Her smile still present
From the playfulness

She doesn’t have to worry
No questions to ask
Boasting his affection
Every chance he can get

Something is blooming
Natural and unexpected
There’s no hesitation
No need for second-guessing

He’s sincere and caring
No reason to run from this –
Friendship mixed with passion
Excitement and childishness

No it won’t be easy
But it’s easy right now
In this generation
We found each other, somehow

And I can’t predict the future
I don’t know he won’t break me
But no matter what happens
He’s a risk worth taking.

Vice

Old habits die hard

Because they never die at all.

And unfortunately,

You’re habitual.

I do it on purpose

To remind me of the pain.

And every time it happens

I wish it never would again.

Old habits die hard

Because they never die at all

When I reach for the phone

You’re the one I call.

And you always answer

Even when you shouldn’t

And every time you do

My God, I wish you wouldn’t.

Old habits die hard

Because they never die at all

And even when I feel nothing

You’re habitual.

Resentment

My sheets still smell like him

That’s why I lay with you

And every time you bring us up

I don’t want you to

You want me to be the one

To make all your dreams come true

But I don’t even know myself

So how the hell can you?

I was always the one

Wanting ‘meant to be’

I don’t know what I want

And it keeps finding me

They’ve been everything I wanted

Everything I’ve dreamed

Then they tell me I’m the one

And I close down completely

So here you are like him

Falling in love with me

You’re absolutely perfect

Saying all the right things

And here I am again

Pushing love away

I don’t want to let you down

I wish that you could stay

But I’m just not ready

I now fear commitment

And everything I used to want

Is everything I resent.

Empty Space

She used to be somebody

She used to be someone

Now in a crowded room

She still feels alone

She used to make money

She used to have fun

Now she keeps finding

Her past can’t be undone

She used to breath for life

She used to smile unforced

Now she feels empty

No way to find what’s lost.

Arraignment

Days go by

Things remain

Nothing lost

Nothing gained

Feelings stay

Never changing

Failure plays

Rearranging

Lost astray

Cast aside

Life replays

Every night

Wondering why

Failure stays

Nothing lost

Nothing gained.
