Missed the bus?
Too late.

Missed the train?
Too late.

Missed the show?
Too late.

Missed the plane?
Too late.

Missed out on chances?
More will come. It’s not too late.

Missed out on life?
You’re living. It’s not too late.

Missed out on happiness?
Be happy! It’s not too late.

Missed out on love?
Love. It’s never too late.

Back Down Memory Lane

When I was younger
Into my life you came
I did some cheesy stuff
Some of which was lame
There was a small spark
Which soon became a flame
Love fueled with passion
Neither of us could tame.
As things got heated
It hurt and caused pain
We couldn’t figure out
What was to blame
It wasn’t working but we tried
Tried time and time again
We fought a losing battle
The result was always the same
We still had happy times
Back when we were both sane
Smiles, laughs, hugs and kisses
Helped us play the love game
At the end of it all
There was nothing more to gain
We had our ups and downs
The tension was too much strain
I still miss those times
So ever so often I walk…
Back down memory lane.

Eternity

I was given a title by a friend to write a poem and I just wrote. So here is what I managed to come up with from the title ‘Eternity’.

I sit alone,
And alone I wait.
Only time passes.
This must be fate.
Patience;
A lesson to be taught.
A battle with sanity;
One that I fought.
Victory;
I wish was mine.
The only thing I won
Was more time.
Tick, tick, tick, tick
Days upon days.
This wait was torture,
In so many ways.
The more days that pass
The nearer it’ll be,
But waiting for vacation
Feels like an eternity.

Our Love

Love breaks
Love mends
Love starts
Love ends
Love hurts
Love heals
Love traps
Love frees
Love speaks
Love lies
Love feels
Love cries
Love is beautiful
Love is fine
Love is sweet
Love is kind
Love sees
Love is blind
Love lost
Love will find
Love is simple and complicated
Love is sometimes overrated
Love is more than meets the eye
Love is us;
You and I.

Why?

Why?
Can you please tell me why?
Why do you put up with me?
Why do you let me treat you this way?
Why do you allow me to hurt you?
Why don’t you ever fight back?
Why do you believe my lies?
Why are you always by my side?
Why are you still here?
Why?

I’ll tell you why.
I put up with you because no one else will.
I let you treat me this way so you can get your frustrations out.
I allow you to hurt me so you don’t hurt yourself.
I don’t ever fight back because fighting will never solve anything.
I believe your lies because I trust you.
I’m always by your side so you’ll have a hand to hold when you’re scared or alone.
So if you want to know why,
It’s because I’m your friend.

Closed Eyes

From the time my eyes opened

Society trained me to see.

That training blinded me.

Take that literally or figuratively,

It’s all the same to me.

I saw the world through tainted eyes.

I saw things in black and white.

Again, take that as you may.

Through my eyes I only saw what was.

No one taught me to see more.

But I did.

And I did it by accident.

I closed my eyes and something amazing happened;

I saw the world.

This time it was different.

I saw everything with my mind.

Black and white became shades of grey.

Who knew they could blend.

As I looked at the world,

I saw what I saw before,

But I also saw more.

I saw what could be;

All the possibilities.

Shades of grey became colour.

Everything seemed bright.

Who knew what I saw was the same world.

The only thing different was the way I looked at it.

That was a dream.

A dream I had.

A dream I have.

There’s more than meets the eye.

Close your eyes and you will see.
