To Which
Rate this poem

You seize upon the occasion

to make an observation

even more pompous than usual

to which I make a

pointed little reply

you look at me, smile,

tilt your head to one side,

then, after considerable pause,

with ironic descent to vulgarity,

observe tartly, “Kiss my ass!”

my face flickers a smile

I look at anything, anyone but you,

shuffle my feet a little,

stop,

then reply with

a certain savoir faire,

“All things in their time and place,

my dear….”

to which we join hands

and squeeze….

The heart that loves

It is so funny how things are in life

And how you plan it never seems to work out quite right

 

Things toss and turn

And never seem to end

 

If you love someone

You look past many of their bad habits

You ignore the things that they do wrong

 

Even if you get hurt by them a million times

You stand up and once again forgive them

 

You can’t leave them

You can’t deny them

You can’t hate them

 

Because it is your heart that loves them

 

Its funny how things are in life

Things toss and turn

 

When you love someone

You forgive them

Because it is your heart that loves them

I tried not to speak to you

I tried to avoid you

I tried to show you how upset I felt

I tried to teach you a lesson

 

So that you could know

How tired I am to play the fool for you

 

I tried to be rude to you

I tried so hard for you to think I am strong

Strong without you

 

But I was too soft

I broke down too fast

Because my heart can’t stand to be away from you

 

Now every time you take me for granted

Because you know I am not strong enough to be harsh with you

 

And you know

My heart can’t stand to be away from you

It is so strange

It is so strange

How I can change

In an instant my mood can change

 

It is so strange

How I can be joyful when I am with you

And then change when I am without you

 

When I am with you nothing can get me down

But when I am not with you I change

 

In an instant my mood can change

I get so sad

And so unhappy inside

I feel to cry

 

It is so strange

How I can change
