Different

Poem By Rosalyn Grohol

She wanted something different
But it always ended the same
She loved him until the last tear
And let go of the pain

She was lost and insecure
Just looking for direction
She felt like she was the rule
But she was my exception

She never wasted any time
On things that didn't matter
On the outside, she looked perfect
The inside was a disaster

Just waiting for her chance
Like any ordinary girl
Not realizing that
She was my entire world

Looking at her fingertips
Longing to be held
Sometimes I wish I told her
How I really felt.

Comments about Different

Usually, I reserve ballad form for parody, but this is a nice, serious one. Appreciation grows as time flows, it seems to say. MM

Something To Believe In

She closed her heart like an old screen door
She didn't want to use it anymore
Like a blue sky fading to grey
She slowly lost the colors in her face

Lost Love

She didn't want to lose him
But she's losing herself
And she's slowly dying
As he lives for someone else

Love Lost

Blue skies always turn to grey
And everything ends the same way
And just like the seasons
He had me believing

Impossible Love

We were only kids
We were free and running wild
You never said you loved me
But I could see it in your smile

Love Hurts

I watched a love
Break like glass
I've seen the tragedy
Of when it all crashed

My Reminder

I needed a reminder
Of who I am inside
I forgot what was true
And got lost in a lie
