About Me and My Poetry

I decided to take up writing poetry about 3 years ago. I used read a lot when I was younger being a shy introvert who was somewhat seen as a misfit. I find it to be very relaxing and therapeutic. My escape from everyday life. I am a fan of haikus, tankas, sonnets, rhyming poetry and stylistic poetry such as E. E. Cummings.

My hungry stomach growling

Through my lonely window, I stare
Dreaming of a different life out there
Caged within for so long
Yearning to find a place I belong
More happiness to find
This prison, so unkind
I think of times long since past
Fleeting moments, only briefly do they last
People come and gone
This life, only so long
Like a song fading away
Growing older day by day
Soon another will start
As from this world, we eventually depart
God, my ever present guide
Feeling content inside
Filled with hope of a better day
Sadness, it does allay
One day to depart from this door
To be free, imprisoned no more

Love, to me so unkind
For so long, my heart it's pined
With you, I've longed to be
Inside, your apathy torturing me
Dreaming of our embrace
As a distant look overtakes your face
Everyday we meet
My heart fluttering as we greet

Seeds of disdain, they're sown
Always together, yet alone
Unnoticed, I've always been
My patience wearing so thin
Your presence, soon to erase
As I disappear from this lonely place
This evening, our final depart
Elsewhere, I'll make a new start
As we say our daily goodbyes
Nothing, no feeling in her eyes
Never will she know
The one who loved her so
Of my intentions, totally unaware
For her, no longer will I despair
In her presence, no longer to be
From this prison, I'm finally free
