I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Splinters is a poem about her love fading away as she listens to him speak. He cannot understand why she is upset. He hopes she will forget the moment as he remains quiet. But as she observes his actions she realizes he lives in his past. He feels no desire to move forward to his future.
"Kenny Chesney - I Lost It"
The sparkles dancing in her eyes
fade off into the distance,
as his words reduce their love
to tiny specks of romance.
Bewildered by her demeanor
he retreats in silence
with no words of passion,
hoping she will soon forget.
As she watches him hide in fear
in the dark crevices of his past,
unwilling to mend the splintered pieces.
"Olivia Rodrigo - All I Want"
