I see you in the mirror,

You’re looking back in horror.

Falling your knees

Begging in tears, “Please!”

Hoping for a better tomorrow,

But all you’ve got was sorrow.

Every step was a mistake,

Especially the one you’re about to take.

A shard of glass in your hand,

Your pains can no longer withstand.

I stared you down, 

You did not flitch, not even a frown.

I know what’s on your mind,

Those agonizing pain is what I find.

You just want to ease your pain,

Find some life relief to attain.

Wondering of the other side,

Maybe there you won’t have to hide.

Can you take my pains away?

This life could not be the way.

I see you in the mirror,

Staring back in horror.

It has been such a strife,

Living this kind of life.

I see you in the mirror,

Just staring back in horror…

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!
