My Love for You

Every time I see you, 

my heart just aches

knowing that I love, 

but you don’t.

Days gone by, 

I wept and cried, 

thinking only of you.

Because of the love I have for you, 

I thought I could not love 

anyone else but you.

It hurt me even more when you left,

you never gave me a chance, 

never gave me a kiss, 

or even looked into my eyes 

to see my love for you.

This pain I feel inside is much greater 

than the love I gave you.

My love for you was a curse, 

like Cupid’s arrow struck 

this lonely heart of mine.

Once my heart felt loneliness, 

once my heart felt happiness,

and now I’m alone and sad.

Now I realize 

My LOVE for You 

meant nothing.

Hi! My pen name is Joe Valentine or JV for short. I started writing when I was in high school over 20 years ago. I haven't had the opportunity to pursue my love of writing for quite some time and I thought I'd try to start it up again. A few things I enjoy is poetry, mostly Shakespeare and most of his Tragic plays. I often feel the words speak to me every time I read them. I also enjoy reading other great poets with the likes of Edgar Allen Poe, Emily Dickinson, Maya Angelou to name a few. I hope to share my work and experiences through my blog and eventually try to be published--one can dream! So keep on dreaming until it becomes a reality!
