Poems: The Way it Once Was

Sharing a few poems with you that I wrote about my past. So much has changed since then, that I often feel like it was another life. Truth that there is light beyond the darkness.

I Can’t Speak

My throat is tight.

It feels like like it is closing.

The pain is unbearable.

I try to speak,

but but nothing comes.

I feel helpless.

I feel like it’s my fault.

Eventually I Leave

I finally get the nerve to tell you,

and you criticize me.

I want to be honest with you,

but for some reason,

you won’t accept all of me.

We fight.

You fall silent for days.

When I try to leave, you love me again.

I’m so confused.

Will this cycle ever end?

Do I stay or go?

Will I ever find someone else?

Will someone ever love me?

Eventually I leave.

That’s How it Goes Sometimes

We were in love.

You were young,

but I was younger.

We thought it was the right thing to do.

But we were fooling ourselves.

I wish I had learned more from our time together.

Instead history repeated.

But that’s how it goes sometimes.
