Poem:How you remind me

You remind me of someone

I use to sleep with

naïve and funny, you know

how to make me laugh.

I had to do a double take, the first time

we met.

I swear you were him, my heart jumped of memories,

learning about each other

he was so young, much younger than I

but mature in many ways,

then showing his age with how to love me

he didn’t know how.

Our brief affair was lustful

he learned a lot, I forgot too much

then we ended it.

I need more, he didn’t know how to

give any more than he had

fond memories show up and make me

    Writing is more than just putting words together to create a different world. Creativity is a way of life - sometimes you have to step out of the and let creativity take over.

  • Trust your writing

    Trust and faith are part of your creative life and persistence helps as well. Creativity wants to work through you and at some point you have to step a side to let imagination take over.

                    Fog Further into the slide of doom my thoughts linger with the fog of the morning tide - I think I made you up as I shut my eyes and let the flashes of light dance freely....

"he learned a lot, I forgot too much" that was a nice line. Almost deserves another poem. Thanks MA. =:)
