First Love

Poem By yvonne selase nyahe

i came back here tonight
to remember you, my first love
the trees are still the same,
the flowers smell like they did when we were younger
i wonder if you still think of me
i wish i know what you, ve done with your life
where you are
if you still care
have you had a hard time like me
fallen in love with the wrong person time after time?
or are you very happy with someone special?
would i still stand a chance
if we met again today?
the memories keep flooding back
the stolen kisses, the happy days
the joys of been in love
but then i turn away and leave
wishes are for little girls
but oh how hard it is to forget

Ahh such a beautiful poem, one we all can relate to. I often wonder as you do where they are now and what they are doing. very nice.
A very soft and nostalgic plaintive write. Lovely

she labors
day and night without break
fighting for the right to live
red swollen eyes and a broken back

Because Of You

because of you
i have regained my strength
my pride, my self esteem
because of you

Every Man

life is a mystery that sits unraveled
leaving men with questions of how and why
making us hopeless and failures
as we wonder in confusion

The Love Letter

my love, my heart
it took a lot of courage
to write you this letter
my tears can no longer fall


i cant believe it
no it seems impossible
you whom i gave my heart to
i entrusted my life into your hands
