These deep meaningful poems stem from years of writing poetry. Some of the poems below are in my poetry book collection: Not in a Fairy Tale, available to buy on Amazon worldwide.
As I inched closer to your old apartment,
I remembered the time I first stayed over,
Two hearts thumping yet neutral together,
Our own little world like a child’s imagination,
Now your spirit has departed and left behind,
Ugly walls and dark, dreary scenic sights,
No light can stem from our Pretend Paris,
Post war erupts over possessions we touched.
After my ex-boyfriend moved away, I found myself near his old house where a friend still lived. I went through the town where me and my ex dined; past the cinema where we watched a film. I thought about how great it all looked. How my excitement to see him made his area more scenic and charming. But going there when he had moved – I suddenly noticed the dirty buildings with their dull grey. They made me feel a sharp sadness. I finally understood: change had occurred and our bond was forever over. One of my most meaningful poems written.
I do not doubt, anyone will ever take your place.
I do not fear, a new love will take mine.
In the same way I am comfortable rain will continue to splatter,
What we had is too much for movies and writers,
It’s the purest form of memory, a sincere love surpassing all ages.
I wrote this piece to capture the consuming, uplifting feeling of having just fallen in love. Each time I fall, it seems more unique, different, ‘meant to be’. They say ‘the first cut is the deepest’ when it comes to the heart, but I’m certain the deepest cuts mark from the people you truly foresee in your future.
An Angel You Fell
What made you unhappy in clothes of wealth?
Beauty cascaded your face and delicate hair,
Admirers followed as though a star pilgrim,
Still the perfection taught did not enrich,
Were you tormented in abstract resolute?
An angel you fell to cruel fate upon despair.
This is a short poem about a woman who appears to have it all. She’s wealthy, beautiful, popular. Though she’s been taught to appreciate these traits, these traits haven’t made her happy. Her insides tarnish with permanent torture – an angelic woman unable to rid herself from a cruel shadow. The shadow being her cruel, fated inner demons. Although it’s not directly personal, it describes how I’ve felt before: Both grateful for my life and saddened by destructive insecurities.
There will be no thud, no clang or clatter,
A bee will buzz past and a swarm will follow,
You will ignore their drones and play coy
For quite a while.
The bees will churn honey,
And grow the sweetest plants,
The richest colours:
Amethyst purple and peacock blue,
You will continue to persist in not needing
To change your stance.
Until the rumble unzips a crescendo stampede,
And you will smell the honey and admire the plants,
And at last you will give the patient bees,
Their permanent first dance.
This is part of my collection of meaningful poems that has a happy ending. Often, we expect instant fireworks and incredible chemistry simultaneously. Patient Lover reminds you to not give up too easy. I penned this poem in my back garden on a summer’s day.
How many hearts have you broken?
How many fools have you ravished with passion?
With sickly-sweet blood and ripe edible lips,
Eyes that disguise in view of thick lashes,
And cheeks that blush red upon first greeting,
What person has chance to dismiss your beauty?
You are the most magnificent painting,
Attached to the cruellest of stories.
Bitter Adore describes a woman struggling to find real intimacy. On the outside, she presents herself as an admirer to many – attempting to find someone worth her while. Inside however, she doesn’t feel capable of sharing love. Her admirers deem her cruel.
