• After Forever

    When I was in high school, I was deeply infatuated with someone. It’s funny to think about it now, but back then, I was a tortured soul. I was so insecure. I’d never wear my heart on my sleeve. The only place I’d let my feelings out were on paper, in stories and poems that mirrored any young girl’s life. I’d say, for a fifteen, fourteen year old (I don’t remember exactly how old I was when I wrote this),…

    I remember writing this when I was in college. I wasn’t always conscious of meters and iambs then. I preferred to write as freely as I wanted, only thinking of rhymes and imagery. I am still not too conscious of those even today, but I think I wrote more freely then, as opposed to the more contained stuff I work on now. Anyway, you be the judge.   Where will I find poetry If you are all of literature to…

  • Revisited

    Here’s a poem I wrote back when I was such a poet. I don’t remember anymore why I chose this title. I do know that there was a phase where I liked using one-word titles only, so maybe that’s the reason. Anyway, I read this today, and I think I should use this quarantine days to get into poetry again. It’s been so long since I last felt like this. You put both my heart and my soul at ease.…

Ever since I was a child, I have always loved this poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. This is so simple, yet it really shows…

    Light up my life, and leave me; Then maybe I wouldn’t miss you. But it’s only you I need to see, But maybe you don’t feel that way too. Walk into my life, and hurt me. I’ll know if it’s you I really love. But maybe we aren’t meant to be. Maybe you’re someone I can’t have. Change my life, and break my heart. Maybe lonely nights won’t make me cry. Maybe I’d be used to us being apart. But…

  • The One

    December 26, 2009 ishabelle

    The night’s dawning now, baby, As I watch you sleep beside me, And then I say my prayers for you, Knowing that we’ll see things through. There’s so much that I want right now, So much that I wish for somehow. But you’ll never hear me say these things, But then again you already know my feelings. I want to be the one who holds your hand When things are rough, and it’s hard to stand. I want to be…
