Just Me

I woke up today

With tears rolling down my face

In bed, I continue to lay

Hoping these tears are just a phase

In my dreams I was in pain

Though reality is just the same

My feelings I could not refrain 

The whole situation was just a lame

I stared at my walls unable to blink 

My mind is feeling lost

I’m not sure what to think

These thoughts will come with a cost

My heart is feeling hurt

It’s pounding hard through my chest

Like it’s been thrown in the dirt

Please, Lord, let this be just a test

My mind is torn

It’s playing with my emotions

And I’m losing at every turn

I’m rocking back and forth like the oceans

At this point, I just hate myself

I’m not sure what to do

It feels like a story in the shelf

One I’m hoping not to be true

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!
