At first, I thought we were friends,

but I never realized what we had

was more than just friendship.

Day by day, happy or sad, 

you were always in my heart, yet I let you go.

You disappeared as if you were never here.

So, I thought you meant nothing.

But I was wrong. 

If only I could turn back the hands of time,

the time of us loving each other,

I would, but I can’t.

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!
