Stare Of Hope

Poem By Jacqueline Dougherty

A look of longing
a cry for attention
a stare of hope.
She wants him to see,
see her as she sees him,
desire her as she desires him.
He doesn't notice her glancing,
and painfully she gives up.
Empty hellos and silent sonversation,
only she knows of her love.
One day she will tell him
that she desires his affection.
Not only affection but intent attention
placed in only her direction.
She'll love him with passion,
and he'll love her too.
But for now she stares.......
intently trying to manage......
to sum up the love powered strength
to tell him.
But instead she looks with longing,
crying heavily for attention,
but always staring in hopes of someday....

Memory Of You

You are but a memory to my dear heart

that dwindles as each day passes me by.

Stop Hiding

It's no wonder why I have to hide

all my feelings deep down inside

She Cries

Alone, she sits in the dark
with her heart in her hands
as the tear drops cleanse the wounds.
She cries.

Life Won'T Lose It's Touch

Sometimes things don't go as well as planned
and they don't uphold to your time's demand

Do It Yourself

Day in and day out
I work hard to keep you happy
and off my aching back for once
and yet.....

How Could One?

How could one not savor Love in its existence?

How could one not taste its sweet fruit?
