    Thaw 


    The way he says my name

    Makes me smile

    Makes my emotions inflame

     

    The way he shows he care

    Makes me have hope

    That I can be repaired

     

    The way he compliments my every flaw

    Makes me want to dive right into his arms

    And thaw

     

    Thaw, the coldness around my heart

    That no one has ever attained

    It requires some kind of art

    Some kind of persistence

    It takes his good heart

     

    This is my entry for Thursday Poets Rally Week 35

    • SeaGlass 1:13 pm on December 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      There’s a lot being said here, and it’s a brave move to share poetry with other people. What I’d suggest is concentrating on really distilling what you’re saying and trying to work out why your experience of these feelings or emotions is unique to you- why, in effect, is your experience special or different? The goal in poetry should be to reveal something new about human experience. You might consider looking at this subject from the perspective of someone completely different from yourself- someone of the opposite sex, a different cultural background, a different species, even! It’s worth experimenting a little and finding something new and unique to tell other people. Good luck and happy writing!

    Some one once told me 


    Some one once told me

    Love is not suppose to hurt

    That love was shown through actions

    And meaningless in words

    That love could conquer all

    But there’s no room for error

    That love has no limits

    Yet there are endless exceptions

    That love is innate

    But I know nothing of it

    That love is to be earned

    And shameful to easily surrender

    That love will never find its way into my life

    Because love does not overlook imperfections

    If love does all that

    How am I not going to hurt?

      Beautiful expression of the inadequacy of unconditional love. Jesus loves you, Tootsie, unconditionally. He loves us in spite of all our imperfections. And He is deity. My heart goes out to you as I read the disappointment and pain revealed in your poetry. Blessings to you, Tootsie…

      I’ve been there; wondered about love, felt as if I’d never find it. But I did, more than once, in fact. Also, love does overlook imperfections. So don’t despair.

    Dear Mom 


    Am I not suppose to trust you?

    Aren’t you suppose to look out for me?

    Sometimes I get the feeling

    That you feel obligated to

    Show me love

    Your motherly instinct does not apply

    With me

    In reality deep down inside

    You still hate me

    And can’t stand the sight of me

    We are both caught and

    Stuck in this moment

    Where everything went bad

    The point where our relationship

    Morphed and somehow didn’t survive

    The point where there was instant regret

    All these years I have done

    Nothing but blame myself

    Blamed you

    Oh, how much I blamed you!

    It’s not our fault

    It’s definitely not my fault

    He came between us

    And caused this chaos

    My world- your world

    Was destroyed in a matter of minutes

    The difference between me and you, Mother

    You have moved on

    And left me behind

    Under all this debris

    Where I’m not able to

    Breathe, move, or see anything

    Around me

    You left me here

    You didn’t reach out for me

    You didn’t get help

    I’ve been waiting for years

    But you never came back

    For me

    -Tootsie

    Heavy 


    I have been trying to escape from you

    For years

    And still you’re a strong presence

    In my life

    The thought of you poisons my attitude

    The mere mention of your name

    Makes me want to crawl in a

    Corner

    And no longer exist

    My life has been nothing

    But a revolvement of you

    Of what you did

    Of what you are still capable of doing

    To me

    I run away

    Inside of myself

    To get away

    FromΒ  all this torture

    To try and somehow find the numbness

    I use to have

    The coldness I used to deal with this

    Experience

    Is it possible that I’ve used it all up?

    Now I’m stuck here

    Having to deal

    With all this heaviness

    That I can’t keep carrying

    I don’t know how I found strength

    To carry this burden for so long

    Or is this where I belong now?

    In order to get rid of it all

    In order to walk away

    With the little sanity I have left?

    I really don’t know anymore

    I wish I didn’t care either

     

    -Tootsie

    Only one girl! 


    I’m only one person

    One body

    One heart

    One soul

    A person who is not able to reach

    EVERYONE

    Yet tries to impact all

    Unsatisfaction

    Unfulfilled needs

    Hunger for solicitude

    And allotment

    I’m only one

    Trying to do it all

    But only receiving

    Dissatisfaction

    And as a consequence

    Groans of greed

    Screams of self-centeredness

    I’m only one

    With expectations to be everywhere at once

    Simply inconceivable

    Expectations to only care about one thing

    To forget the others

    Mayhem

    Only one girl

    Tortured by the lack of time

    Persecuted for not meeting a standard

    I’m only one girl

    Labeled substandard

    Blissfully Painful 


    I love the way you text me just to say

    I love you

    The way you ignore me when you don’t

    Get your way

    The way your smile drives me crazy

    Yet your evil eyes keep me

    From sinking in deeper

    Your touch melts me in your arms

    And in an instance your words solidify me

    I don’t know whether to be happy

    Or disappointed because I can’t get

    Up and leave

    This love has trapped me

    Ultimately

    I love it all

    The good and the bad

    The pleasure and the pain

    I don’t want to give you up

    Even though I know I should

    These are the times when I’m just content

    Living in this blissfully painful situation

    Not expecting anything

    Just hoping..for your affection

    Here we are 


    Here we are

    At the final destination

    This rut, this bad place

    A place where the cold lives

    Where our love has dampen

    Where our kisses have dissipated

    I am left with these conflicting feelings

    Of love and hate

    Of happiness and sorrow

    Of the old you and this impostor

    I’m trying to hold on

    To the memories

    To the words once spoken

    To this love that came out of nowhere

    But…

    I hate you so much

    I just want to let this love

    Slip from my

    fingers

    Slip right into the ground

    To no longer be revived

    Or remembered

    Nevertheless

    Something about you

    Makes me latch on to you more

    And yearn the hurt that is and

    Always will be inevitable

    Untitled as of now.. Inspired by relationships around me. 


    When you came into my life

    You caught me by surprise

    I wasn’t searching

    I wasn’t expecting to fall in love

    Here I am now

    Deeply invested

    Unleashing all the love

    I have within

    Time pass

    And by surprise

    You completely change

    Towards me

    Towards my love

    How am I suppose

    To pretend like

    Everything is okay

    When you are so distant?

    What am I suppose to do

    With all this love?

    All the love I grew for you

    Did you know it would

    Turn out this way?

    Did you know you would

    Stop loving me one day?

    What am I suppose to do now?

    No answer…

    Through all the silence

    You hear my heart break

    And even though it hurts you

    To pain me this way

    No action is taken

    Only the letting go

    As you walk away

    Halfway 


    I know you don’t understand me

    And probably never will

    You will never understand

    That I will always love you

    Regardless of what you’ve said

    You probably won’t ever be able to believe

    That your deeply embedded in my heart

    How can I expect you to understand

    Or believe?

    How can I expect you to love me the way

    I need to be loved

    When I don’t love you the right way?

    Maybe one day

    We will meet each other halfway

    Halfway to love

    The way I love you 


    I love you, My child

    I express my love for you everyday

    When the rays of light slightly

    Warm your face

    When the breeze gently caresses your body

    When the leaves on the trees sway side to side

    Dancing for you

    Yet you don’t notice these things

    Everything I have made in this world

    I have made it for you

    With you in mind

    You are so special to Me

    My creation

    You cry because you say

    You are not perfect

    Yet you were perfectly created

    By My Hands

    Look around you

    And you will find Me

    Seek Me

    And you will know

    All the ways I love you
