Missing Him...

Poem By Akua Achampong

When you miss him so much that it burns in your chest,
Ripping the days off your calender,
Counting down till when you'll see him next.

And you hate yourself for being this way;
that this one boy could put you in a fiddle and cause such pain.
But you keep running back, thinking things'll be different.
Putting yourself through an emotional hurricane in search of some little improvement.

So when finally you can't take it anymore and 'let him have it'
and you come to your senses and break this bad habit...
could you help me please and let me know.
Cause im in the emotinal hurricane
and my true feelings are begining to show-
These feelings- so hard to tame,

Cause my chest IS burning
And my pages ARE ripping
and i so do hate myself for being this way.

In Love With Love

Here sits a boy so in love with this girl,
But he won't say a word cause it sets him in a whirl.
And it won't stop spinning untill he can find
some rest, reassurance or peace of mind,

Count Down

Ten- Time is ticking way too fast
Nine- Nothings ever meant to last
Eight- Everything you knew this year
Seven- soon enough will disappear

The Station

I stop at the station,
I stand,
I wait.
But time keeps ticking and its getting late.

Death Of The Budding Flower

Plant my seed and plant it deep,
Push it through the dirt.
ill germinate and fix my roots
Deep within the earth.

My Little Box

I'm trapped and i can't move...
These four walls of my little box are too hard to break through.
I can't do it anymore;
My walls are moving in and my hearts too sore.
