Twisted in lovers lane
A mix of emotions I can’t, or choose not to explain
How can I go from having “some” feelings to what seems like love overnight

You touched me without touching me
Or rather made me touch myself
I feel your presence here even though you’re clearly not

Not physically but mentally you’re right here next to me
Laying oh so perfectly

Will this sudden rush of feelings go away as quickly as they came
Or will they stand the test of time

Sadly, perhaps thankfully even as I finish this poem I feel those feelings slipping away
And me returning back to normal

Whatever that means


Same Old Love

I keep going back to you
And pushing you away

Why do I do this

Is it your fault or mine

Will there be a time when we get it right
I really don’t want to have this fight

You can get mad at me, but I can’t at you

But who made that rule

When I’m the only one forcing myself to follow it

The cycle only ends when we both agree to stop it

But for now I guess

We’ll keep each other in our back pockets


How many times will I write about you
How many times can I write about you

When will it be too much
If that’s possible

When will I be over you
If that’s possible

How can I imagine what could have been
How is it that I feel that same hurt over and over again

Wish that they didn’t take you away
Wish our timing would have been better then I wouldn’t be here complaining

Time moves forward
Slowly, but still

Somehow I’ll make it through
I promise, I will

Put You In A Room

Wish I could just place you away
Not to punish, but to make you stay

You could have anything you want
But just not me

I can’t be around
When you hurt me continuously

I want to support you
However I can

You just can’t be my only priority
Be willing to understand

We could keep things the way they are
But that wouldn’t be right

So now I’m closing the door
And saying a final goodnight




They’ll always come first
And that’s how it should be

I just need to get used to that
But can I at least

Be a thought
Or a consideration

We have fun
But then there’s no conversation

You told me what is was
When we first started out

Sometimes it seems like there could be more
But I do have my doubts

Once the big reveal was made
It was clear that this needed to end

I just wish I had the strength
But my weakness always pulls me back in
