A Winter Kiss

There are days

Where I try to find ways

To get you to smile at me

Though, our hearts isn’t free

I hold back my heart

And each time it tears me apart

I want you in my arms

But these feelings put me in harms

Every time I see you

I know in my heart it’s true

These feelings I have inside

Just wanting to be by your side

I want to hear your voice

But I’m left with no choice

I’m not allowed to say

Words that will only go astray

My heart would only shed tears

It’s everything my soul fears

The hurt and pain I cannot hide

There’s no hope, no one to confide

And so, I retreat in isolation

Away from my heart’s devastation

At times I lose my sense of reason

Finding ways to change the season

It may have been summer or winter

Where this heart of mine gave a whisper

Yearning to have you again

When I was more than just a friend

When spring came, it felt like fall

As if autumn leaves swept away my doll

I could only wish for that wintery kiss

Where you’ve turned my world into a bliss

But now I feel like drowning in abyss

Thoughts of us while I reminisce

Wishing that there’d be a time

Of you and mine

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!
