A Little Bit of Poetry In My Life

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.17646bbf-ac99-47ee-b095-7883dc5cf44c

After all,

Love happens on its own time.
