when people are in love
they often say
they simply fell
tripped over their own two feet
face forward
and into the arms of their beloved

i did more than simply fall
onto the ground of your love

you, for me
were an ocean
and i dived
almost painfully
into the waters of “you”

i knew i could not swim
but i did so anyway
i was drowning
entangled in you
surrounded by this being of “you”
engulfed in this feeling of “you”

and i did not know what came over me
but i let myself drown
i did not try to swim back up
because if i went back to land,
releasing myself from your grasp
that would mean losing the feeling of “you”

and after
submerging into the depth
the love
the passion
of “you”

how could i ever leave?

It was just you and me
Happy and free
Until she came
You were not the same
Now, all I feel
Is jealousy
Sydney Dec 2022
What do I feel?
The feeling consumed me.
Is it a feeling?
What do I feel?
I think you can read it backwards?

I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)

The darkness swallowed
The beasts howled
In the darkness
I shivered
The river
The night
Grew darker
And the noises
grew sharper
I was trapped in my head
Forever and ever
Started writing again!

She with wings,
Bullied by the others.
She with wings,
A rare one to discover
She with wings,
Without a friend
She with wings,
Will be able to mend
She with wings,
She'll fly and she'll tend
To all her wounds
And become strong again

Close your eyes
Take the butterflies
And wish upon a star

Make it big
Or make it small
Don't yell it out to all

If you do,
The stars will coo
Your wish has not come true

It will come
If good, not bad
So please don't be sad
Happy new year, everybody! Well, late new year. I hope you had a great one.
