The lonely poet

These are my personal poems. I write them usually when I have strong emotional feelings. Happy and sad.


The first steps of freedom The anti climax I'm escaping from the boredom And arguing the facts Stepping gingerly into the unknown Taking a deep breath, the first time alone It's not a feeling I choose to relish It's a moment I won't forget Mum counters something About catching fish And all the ones I haven't met Kissing toads and finding a prince I thought I found him once 6 But haven't seen him since I know what I don't like, but what do I want ? Would I recognise him if he was standing in front ? Is he tall, dark and handsome ? Or am I meant to be on my lonesome ? So I take a deep breath, and then I decide That life is a roller coaster and I'm up for the ride I pay for my ticket and catch the train Towards my new life and I start again.
