Poetry

I’ve been swimming against the current for so long, My red towel is bleached pink from the sun. My body’s strength, is gone. Perhaps it isn’t too late to turn around. I’m just so tired now. Perhaps it’s past time to just drown. I’ve begun to sink. I know this defeat. My prayers bubble up to the surface, Never to be seen As my body washes out to the sea. Released. Free.

Hate to Hurt You

You’ve been good, gentle and caring Yet, there’s something missing I want to repay you But, how could I? . I stay up late with you on the phone We chat and talk ‘til the break of dawn Nonsense matters arise Forced to deal with such boredom. . I acted nice I pretended to be sweet I respected your kindness But, it just doesn’t work I get tired. . I do not want to dismiss you In fact, I want you to stay Be a friend that I’ll cherish I guess I just want it that way . I don’t intend to hurt you But how could I possibly tell you I do not want something beyond friendship I do not need “it” yet . My attention is not on you I’m distracted with something new Just be there and stay Don’t dare go away.
