I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Hopeful regret is a poem about a man who uses old school charm to woo his woman. She becomes hypnotized by love and waits on him hand and foot. He grows weary of her loving ways and searches for another conquest quickly realizing he made a mistake. The grass is not greener. He hopes she will forgive him. He wants to be a king in her eyes again.
"Rocket Man by Elton John"
The love in his eyes
glistens like snow sparking in the sunlight,
melting each breathe she takes
with his kind chivalrous manner,
treating her like a lady,
opening doors for her
like she is a princess.
From the moment his eyes glance her way
he puts on the old school charm,
convincing her to toss away
the key to her heart,
waiting on him hand and foot
like she is hypnotized by a magical force.
Her uncanny devotion
spreads like wildfire through his veins,
scalding the feelings
he once held deep within his heart,
making him turn the burner off
as he searches through empty conversations,
hoping to see a refreshing light
for a secret conquest.
Touching his feet on the other side
realizing the grass is not greener,
he clings to the one who loves him most
hoping she can forgive his mistake,
wanting to be a king in her eyes once more.
"Pretty Heart - by Parker McCollum"
