This last semester as part of my curriculum I took a poetry class. I’ve never really considered myself a poet, but I think I turned out a few good pieces. Tonight, I thought I’d share one with you. It is a work-in-progress, so feel free to offer feedback.
“No More Love”
I’ve given up on Love!
Every relationship I’ve had that I think will work, blows up in my face.
It has gotten on my last nerve. It’s about time I was finally heard: I’m so
Tired of all the bullshit, I’m like a turkey at Thanksgiving that’s been in the oven for half a day,
Roasted and done.
All of you left me discombobulated. Like Humpty Dumpty I had to be
put back together again. Although all my pieces are now in the right place, I have yet
To reconnect with the world.
Not that I didn’t try, but just like all the rest
It quickly died.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not angry. Though it’s bittersweet, I have simply
Accepted defeat. I had hoped things would be different.
Maybe one day they will and I’ll meet a guy, who can,
Change my mind.
Not that I plan to wait around for him to magically appear. That could take a day, a month
Or even a couple of years. No matter how long it takes, I’ll keep moving forward and
Live my life.
Love happens on its own time.
