Poem: Not Ready

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Summary of Poem

"Not Ready" is a poem about her heart being broken but she hides behind the bittersweet memories.

She's not ready to move forward.

She's not sure her head is up to the task so she suffers in silence.

No one can tell she is in agonizing pain. She hides it well.

"I'll Never Love Again" (from a Stsr is Born)(official music video)

Not Ready

Wipe the slate clean,
start over from scratch,
she’s not sure her head
is up to the task.

Hiding behind
bittersweet memories,
suffering in silence
with agony lingering.

Smiles abound,
no one can tell
her painful misery,
she hides it so well.

I wish I could lose these feelings as fast as I lost you.
