~SHE~

She cries late at night ... so no one else hears,
though she's always grateful ... for the company of her own tears.

There is so much of her no one else has tasted...
so much kept locked inside ... she knows so much of her has been wasted.

She aches for the things she's lost ... so much taken away,
so many lies, the worn and tired alibis ... love just wouldn't stay.

She asks for so little ... only to die with no regrets ...
but then first she would have to know contentment ...
and that hasn't happened yet.

Eyes filled with tears ... cant see into the future,
but its just got to be better ... of this she is sure.

There is nothing in her present to make love last ...
and then there are those shadows ...
always knowing she is owned by her past.

She knows she is the only one who can truly set her free ...
but the ties that bind now chain her, denying sweet destiny.

So she cries late at night, drowning in her tears ...
and she pretends not to notice ... the passing of her best years.

Janet Marie  


*DP repost



 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Jan--

I read this when it was posted in DP and it really hit home for me. And now as I read it again...another wave of emotions cross over me. You prove to me time and time again that not only are you a gifted poet but a wise soul in a young body  

As always respectfully yours
Love,
Amy

Very very true! I tend to think women fall into traps of denying who they are so they fit the moulds other people have for them..
wonderful poem

JM, this poem is really great.  I like the style and expression.  Sounds like someone longing for lost hopes and dreams.
~~Superb writing as usual~~~

Hi Janet!
I've felt a lot like this with nobody to listen or even if someone is always there to listen,I've suffered from some inferior thoughts to let myself out. Ask her not to worry. She'll find someone who's always out there to listen and love her. Wasted years are past and I wish a wonderful present for her.

Cheers!!

Janet Marie...I'm sorry to say there have been many times in my life I've felt like this, but I've come to realize sometimes we are only as alone as we choose to be.

Janet, you know, if you and me got together, and put all our tears in a bucket, we'd have a swimming pool the size of the grand canyon.     Guess we could enjoy it this summer, 'eh?  Gawd, I can't even make a funny today....argh.  Kind of in a dark mood myself.  Take care of you girl....we are definately due for some "pick me up Tonka trucks" right about now!  (screaming off the rooftop!!)

J. Marie,
You've done it again.  Your poetry is so special to me - everything I've seen that you've written touches me so deeply.  What's in your past is so strong, I know.  When it's that strong it takes quite a hold on you and your entire life.  It becomes such a part of you that letting it go would be like letting go a part of yourself - your essence.   I think it is very possible to move on, even while holding on and remembering that part of you.  I'm thinking about you girl.  Don't give up yet.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance. And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance - I hope you dance.
song by LeeAnn Womack

As much as I love your DP work, I hope this is just a repost and not where your at right now.  But either way, have a HUG from me.

I remember this one from DP and it hit me hard then and hits me just as hard right now.  The last lines suck the wind right out of me...so much truth and reflection in this one J.M. and so much pain.  
Take care of you!!  **AWH's** S.S.


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

Wow, for a dark mood this was a great poem.  Gald you reposted.

P.S.
     I'm going to have to do some research on this "Tonka Truck" stuff you guys keep mentioning.... got my curiousity tweaked. =)
