Am I?

Poem By Tessa Eichhorst

Am I always what you dreamed
or hoped for? Am I the ideal
type as some would say? Do
I make your head spin and
heart anguish? Am I the girl
you could fall in love with?

These are the questions I
ponder if this is how you
look at me. Sometimes I find
myself saying, 'I hope so',
under my breath. Other times
I pray it's not, for I am
not picture perfect of a
'dream' girl.

When it comes from me to you,
I often hear my thoughts run
about on what my mind and
heart should be saying. Often
times what my head conjers up
is, am I really feeling this?
Am I too dreamy of him; do I
talk him up too big? Am I right
for looking towards him, is
he the one I long for?

Usually after my mind plays its
part, my heart comes true, and
finds a deeper meaning. Why am
I falling for him? Why am I
feeling this way? How can he
make me smile from just one
word out of his mouth? Am I
putting everything aside? Is
he truly the one? And the
question in my heart most of
all, am I possibly falling
in love with him?

Certainly the only way to find
out these answers is really ask
these am I?

A Sister Is.....

A sister is your guardian angel if she's older,
and your constant shadow if she's younger.
She's your best friend in all your endevours.
Your confidant, protector of your heart,


All these years I've spent without you
physically in my life, but you clearly are
an inspiration. Lately I've tried to be
what you were and what your spirit still


Everytime I see your face whether in
person or in thought, I feel the need to
smile. You bring joy to my heart, a
beam of sunlight to my face, and


I'm wishing that this day would
have never come, the day, today,
that you went away.

One Cold Day

She hasn't seen him for
days, weeks, even months.
The day she went to see him
will be one she will never

Walk Away

Too many times has something held me back from achieving something great. I almost stopped my life waiting for your next move; a move I'd still be standing in line for.

I try to tell myself my life is greater than you, greater than this facade we both went through. I've now released the pressure of you and walked away.
