Poem – My Only Love

This love is consuming me

It’s creating the sinner in me

Taking over my mind, body and heart

When I’m with him I can’t let us be apart

It’s been like this between us ever since the start

He’s always been there to love and care

When we’re apart if feels too much to bare

We stay strong united in our love for each other

Because his love couldn’t be replaced by another

Whenever I hear him whisper my name

I know that between us this love will always remain

We may fight and argue

But I know that this happiness inside of me is all down to you

When I’m wrapped up in your arms

I know that I couldn’t come to any harm

As its the safest place that I can ever be

I hope that I never have to set you free

Because that would destroy me

At night I lie in bed

And its only thoughts of him that run through my head

I know that not an inch of my heart could ever stray

Because with him I am meant to stay

The one who gives me a purpose

Who tells me that I’m not worthless

Everyone can see that we are meant to be

We don’t need to think about the if, buts or maybe

Because together we can see the problems through

between us, just us two

Poem–Don’t Have You

Dear Mr Right who is obviously Mr Wrong

First up I want to say, I want my heart back because with you it doesn’t belong

See I know it doesn’t matter about me and you

And everything that you put me through

All the lies and cheatin’ isn’t something my heart will allow

Life is tough but I understand you want to be with her now

I’m starting to take a new direction

One that doesn’t need any of your so called affection

You committed the three deadly sins of love

Lie, cheat and beat

Yeah, that’s right, you can tick all of the above

Now you see when it comes to me and you

I was always in last place, back of the queue

Didn’t ever think that I could be without you,

But now I know that I’ll be fine

And that without you my heart won’t flat line

I’ve realised that I’ve got to dry my eyes

Because chance for love with another is going to arise

I used to put you first and me last

But now those times are times of the past

Now that you’ve broken my heart

And we are living out lives apart

All because you put our love under attack

Don’t ever expect me to take you back.
