Here are some of my poems. My favorite is Without You.

Sometimes I lie awake in bed and imagine
how much better my life would be
if you were here next to me.

You say that you know me, but when I ask you
if you remember my favorite color,

Unhealthy Candy
The candy tastes good,
but the after-taste is unpleasant.
Another piece.
The candy tastes delightful,
but the after-taste is unbearable.
No more candy.
Months pass.
The blissful taste is vivid.
The after-taste is forgotten.
A final piece.
The candy tastes much better than remembered,
but the after-taste is fatal.

Turn of events
I thought I was ready
I thought I had control
I thought I could do it
I thought it would be easy
I thought wrong...

Without you
I look ahead and try not to look back,
but you're holding a mirror in front of me,
and it's hard not to see what I've left behind
or think about the good times we've had.
So I'm stuck here, looking at what's gone,
as I try to start my new life without you.
