I love to be creative with my emotions and one way of expressing myself is through writing powerful poetry.

When I hear a story or experience deep emotions, I feel the need to cleanse my emotions by writing a story in rhyme.  From domestic abuse to alchoholism, I want my poems to inspire, help others and empower.

From A Wasted Tear to Your Twisted Tongue listed below, my poems are full of creative emotions and feature in my e-book “E-motive Poetry”

A WASTED TEAR
(currently being used by Shropshire Council in their Domestic Abuse Training and SEEDs to raise awareness and empower those who have experienced such abuse)

Why have I found that I’ve missed you
when I felt so reassured?
That I was strong enough to leave you
when you gave me no reward.

My life with you was brutal, full of hatred and disgust
but I looked up to you,
you were someone I could trust.

You had a bad beginning but I thought you would change,
with love and caring, I believed I’d heal your pain.

I gave my soul up to you
I lived for the moments we’d share;
when we were happy and contented
together we’d fly through air.

I made the break completely
when your anger went too far,
I ended up in hospital
where my neck still bears the scar.

You could have killed me…
I could have died…
Why did I love you?
Why didn’t I see your lies?

My memories are only bitter
you’re a menace and a cheat.
Who I dedicated my life to
when I should have been finding my feet.

Now, I’m living for tomorrow
and not leading a life of fear.
You were someone I looked up to
Though now…
A Wasted Tear.

I LOVED YOU

I never thought I’d still love you
The waves are crashing and the water’s oh, so blue
I never thought I’d still love you
You were my hero, what am I now without you?
I loved you, I loved you
How I loved you, I loved you.

Long ago
In times of old
Our moments were so precious
My heart was filled with gold
… with gold

I never thought I’d still love you
The waves are crashing and the water’s oh, so blue
I never thought I’d still love you
You were my hero, what am I now without you?

Help me to discover
My life now that you’re gone
and then I may believe
I’m carrying your son

(Sung in an echo)
And my heart…
…drags without you near
Your soul is by my side
I live life without any fear

Standing here
As I look out to the sea
Alone on this rock
Emblazoned by the fire of love I see

I never thought I’d still love you
The waves are crashing and the water’s oh, so blue
I never thought I’d still love you
You were my hero, what am I now without you?

YOUR TWISTED TONGUE

What’s happened since the time we were never apart?
A friendship sent from heaven, you were always in my heart.
Every day in everything we shone in other’s eyes
I adored your smell, your voice – I fell for every lie.

I tried much too hard, to be a part of your life
there was chemistry between us but it caused us too much strife.
Fate was always there whenever our chances arose
we were ebony and ivory but a thorn lurked in the rose.

I thought you loved me but the timing was wrong
you broke up my relationships with your evil twisted tongue.
For five long years, I was weighed down by your spell
while you remained pretentious, drunk; I was there each time you fell.

I loved you from the beginning and I miss your companionship,
we were a lethal combination on a permanent guilt trip.
Alcohol was the drug I thought was our friend
it would deepen our emotions but killed us at the end.
Two years later, I avoid your every move;
I’ve learned to love myself again and no longer need the booze.

My heart still cries out for you when I see you around
you have so much potential in you: I know you could be found.
I want you to be happy and receive the thoughts I send
but our togetherness is now over, I was addicted “ex-boyfriend.”
