3000 Miles – A Poem

Another forgotten poem – this one seems to be about a high school crush? Maybe? I recognize that those following my writing may be sick of seeing these. I will be trying to mix this up more.

I don’t remember the context of this poem. While going through this folder of old poems this one stuck out to Jacob – potentially because it meant something to him when he read it. Maybe it will mean something to you too.

Going through long distances relationships that don’t work out is hard. As we grew up we both experienced this and perhaps that’s the chord it hit.

3000 Miles

I don’t know what else to say
You’re over 3000 miles away
A heart can stretch great distance yet
A heart can get lonely, like anyone gets

A simple crush, then turned down hope
Nothing settles you, I’ll have to cope
You’ll never have to hear from me again
I’ll disappear because I love you, my friend

This betrayal is tearing me apart
At least I was honest, but then again you aren’t
I hear things about you from other people
The lies I’ve heard make me scream

I don’t understand everything that’s happening
All I know is that I love you
And I’ve given up on everyone and everything
Good bye, take care, I love you

That’s all you need to hear.

Now You’re Gone – A Poem

From the forgotten poems circa 2000 – 2005. This one looks to be on the topic of teenage angst. This one was selected by Jacob from the stack.

Now You’re Gone

It’s like smiling
When there’s the lump
In my throat

It’s like crying
Alone, Day after Day
No one will see

It’s like lying
All those words
You said to me

And it’s loving
Every minute act
That says you still care

It’s running away
As to not bother you
And sitting alone

It’s fearing you
Yelling at me
Screaming how I’m wrong

It’s watching you kiss
Hold this other girl
And me pretending

It’s pretending
I’m fine with it
And I’m your friend

It’s facing the fact
No matter the love
I feel for you

I’ll never get you back.

Three Poems On Reality

Next up in the forgotten poems (2000 – 2005) series: ’Escape, ’ ’Dawn,’ and ’Toy.’


Found while cleaning/organizing my office

Toy

Wind me up with the little key
I’ll smile and dance: just little me
Dressed up in pretty clothes for all to see
You’ve made me a toy to reality


Escape

escape reality
close your eyes
lean forward
into the sky


Dawn

I’m breaking like dawn
on a clear day; thunderstorms
are coming here soon

Two Ocean Themed Poems

Continuing the forgotten poems series, these two poems are from sometime between 2000 – 2005. I’m leaving these open to interpretation, though I’m sure teenage angst is a fair assessment. Let me know if they struck a chord for you and, if so, what if was in the comments 🙂



The Rock And The Sea

The rock is crying
Can’t you hear?
The sea plays way too rough
He’s been asking
for the sea
To please kindly stop


Staring At The Water

on the dock
tears mix with stars
passing lights
of passing cars
ripples move
across the sea
why won’t it
just swallow me?
