True Love

Poem By Jerik Middleton

True love is not meant to be,
But it is always true.
It's when you love another,
When they don't love you.

True love is a challenge,
That not all can handle
But the love that lasts forever,
Like a forever burning candle.

True love will sometimes hurt,
But has amazing healing power.
Sometimes it takes time to bloom,
Much like a beautiful flower.

True love is loving someone,
That is in love with another.
Waiting, hoping and praying,
To be loved by them and no other.

True love is accepting its grasp,
And dealing with its consequence.
Pain, suffering, sadness and joy,
It may not ever make sense.

True love is going out on a limb,
To show another your devotion.
To show them another side of you,
To be vulnerable and show emotion.

True love is calling their voicemail,
Just to hear their beautiful voice.
Many would stop if they could,
If their heart gave them a choice.

True love is never giving up,
On the one you love true.
That's why I'll never give up,
I'll never give up on you.

Always And Forever

Dreaming about you is like being in a fantasy.
Every second with you means the world to me.
I try to go to bed early every single night.
Because dreaming helps me with my fight.


Money is tight at this moment
The bills are piling high
Trying to find the extra cash
Searching for what we cant find.

The One I Let Get Away

I feel so lost and alone,
I just feel empty at times.
I fear the problem may be,
you will never be mine.


A lot of bad things have happened,
I have had a very rough past.
All the events that took play,
Made it seem I would never last.

The Last Note

Now as he lays down to sleep.
he prays his heart will cease to weep.
though his heart may be dead.
he cant rid the thoughts in his head.


I’ve liked you since the day that we met.
Since that day my year has been set.
My goal has been to be the only one for you,
And for you to be the only one for me too.
