If Only

There you are again 

Knocking on my door

In pain and heartache

Needing someone to talk to

And here I am listening to stories 

Your stories of aches and agony

I try to endure your pains 

Even when it hurts me

I don’t know if you’ve noticed

It wasn’t until he left you

Why couldn’t you see

I wonder if you know my heart is in despair

What does he have that in me you can’t see

If only I had been the one you loved

Maybe you’d never be alone again

If only I had been the one you loved

You’ll never cry again

If only I had been the one you loved

You will never need to find another

Here is my heart just waiting for you

I’m still here, hoping your heart feels it too

It may just change

I’ve been here with you all your life

All you need is to love me too

If only I had been the one you loved

If only I had showed you I loved you

If only I could have told you I loved you

… If only

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!
