Love and Pain

These eyes have cried many tears

Heartache and pain throughout the years

Love is just another emotion I fear

Pain echoes in my soul and all I hear

I know only in dreams could last

An enchanting love spell do cast

I pray for the moon not to past 

Wake me not from this love avast 

Could it be?

Has thine eyes seen me?

Broken, shattered and unfree…

Lost and in despair, down on bended knee

An unwelcome farewell

Makes this heart ill and unwell

An agony of pain feels like hell

But this is love, a story the heart tell

It will not go away

For my heart will find its way

To the heavens I shall pray

That I feel thy love one day.

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!
