I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Don't Believe You Anymore " by Colin Hay
If you love someone
you are committed
with no desire to play the field.
Your sweet words and tender kisses
are no longer real,
your hateful demeanor
has lifted the wool from my eyes.
Like a piece of trash
you discarded me
with no feeling in your heart,
only to utter the words
I love you
since I left.
My feelings are numb,
crushed by the thought
of your embrace,
smothered by the flames
a once loving heart.
