I use poetry
to express myself
in ways I wouldn’t normally do in person.
I’m not the verbal type.
Written communication is my thing.
My mind is much too busy
to concentrate on just one scene.
I get bored easily in face-to-face conversations,
I’d rather not say anything and just observe.
Most people don’t like that but
that’s just the way it is (for me).
I guess I’m…unique.

Unconditional Love

I have that unconditional love,
the kind that’s so hard to find
in this modern-day lustful world.
The kind of love
some people would die for.
No artificial favors.
No preservatives.
That good, old-fashioned kind.
