“Don’t be afraid if I fall in love.” 

I guarantee I’ll get there first
and I’ll turn around
and you’ll shake your head.

I once knew a girl who loved 
things most people shun. 
Every man she ever loved was
terrible to her, terrible 
I tell you. 
But there was something 
about them that intrigued 
her – she loved broken things,
broken people. 
To her, if there was
nothing to fix there was
nothing to love.

The Thoughts of A Free Verse Poet

With a pen in my hand,
Resting on a blank piece of paper,
And a blank screen staring in front of me,
I don’t think I could be happier,
Than when I’m alone,
With a chaotic sandstorm
Of poems yet to be written
And feelings
Yet to be diagnosed
With words.
The potential for magic
Rests in the air
And it is magnificently compelling.

A Diamond On The Horizon

I’ll endlessly stare at you
Until you see me for all I am
And all I am yet to be.
I hope one day you’ll realise
All that I stood for,
And how unique I was.
I changed every day
When I was around you,
No,
Surrounded by you.
You demanded my attention,
But threw away every ounce of adoration
I had for you.
You chased a dime
When there was a diamond on the horizon.
And I hope
You are fucking happy with the choices you made.
Because I am.
I made it.
And you didn’t.
