A Second Glance..

I did see myself in her eyes,
A true reflection of my soul,
Saw someone so very special,
Someone who made me whole
She never asked me to change,
Loved my every little emotion,
It didn’t matter how strange.
Yet I betrayed her heart so,
Why I did it, I do not know.

I left her in the rain of tears,
A broken heart, her I did gift,
Gave her some sad memories,
When for happiness she did sift.
Her trusting hand, I did let go,
From her smile, I did turn away,
She never saw my burning tears,
I regret it even this very day.

No luster I thought we had,
Glaring errors I always did make,
Volatile, this little mind of mine,
I thought it was a threat to take.

I never wanted to hurt her so,
Burden her mind with my pain,
Reasons unsaid, I had no choice,
I didn’t want to lose her again.
Perhaps she would have understood,
I felt unsure to take that chance,
Walked away, left her with sorrow,
I wish I’d seen her, a second glance.


Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
