The Artsy Korner

gave me this link to "Poetic Asides" where all through April there is a poem a day challenge. Here are my first three prompts!

I'm Sending A Letter, Addressed To Your Heart

I'll be sending a letter, addressed to your heart
I hope that it makes it, I really worked hard
To express to you - my inner most feelings
Feeling raw and vulnerable, reaching
Will you reach back?

Not A Place In The World

You'll never understand how many times -
I've tried to wrap my head around -
The idea of you, standing in my doorway.
Not sure if I should let you in, close you out -
Or let you linger there, without a word.
Slamming your fingers between the door hinges,
more times than I can count.
And you'll never know how sorry I am,
There just doesn't seem to be room for you,
In my world.
My unwelcome welcomed visitor.

I'm Sorry! Really, I'm Not!

World turned upside down, but only momentarily
Before you're back to being you
And I'm stuck being me.
Angry and frustrated.
Guess we'll stick with open apologies.

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You'll be safe and sound
-Taylor Swift "Safe and Sound"

  1. Great picture and poems! I love the emotion in all of them. You write very well. I'm glad you decided to participate. Keep writing!

    I checked out the song (and its video) you were telling me about. She sounds good with the Civil Wars. I swear that guy reminds me of Johnny Depp and Jack White. The last minute and a half of the video gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. That *is* a sad song.
