For My Eyes Only

Poem By Charmaine Williams

This is for my eyes only
The pressure to write is weighing down on me.
I just want to sit
Sit
And simply write without rhyme.

Allow these syllables to take flight
Like an Eagle soaring through the sky
Way, way up high.

I fear that my words won’t make sense
I met the person who inspired me today
And writing has been on my mind ever since.

Sometimes I have to write for me
Me
When will I have time for me?
I have too many things,
Things, on me
Like school, work and family.
That’s why this write is for my eyes only

I feel somewhat of a weight lifted off me.
What is it that needs to come out?
I feel like I just need to shout.

Time
That’s what I need time
Time to develop my rhyme.

I don’t have to sound like anybody else
My gift is uniquely for me
Just make sure my words are felt.

My words are powerful and filled with life
Who cares if I never make it on the mic.
My gift will make room for me.
I’ll continue to express myself
And handle with care, the hand I was dealt.

For those who can’t understand what it is like
I need this pen
Like I need oxygen

This is my outlet to let my creative juices flow
When you find your talent
You will know

This poem may not be one of my best
But I had to let myself flow
Without a second guess.

My, oh my, I hope this feeling will last.
I don’t ever recall feeling this way in the past.

What is this feeling that has come over me?
I can't understand it, just taken over totally.

Relaxation Is My Hobby

Come on and get in the mood.
Close your eyes and think of all the things that’s good.
Begin by writing in a journal and I’ll tell you why,
It’s something therapeutic about getting your thoughts on paper, it may seem childish but give it a try.

Tell Me Again

I know you told me once before

It's been 56 days
What am I going to do?
I am supposed to be getting over you.
