Inside

Composed 6/22/16
Description: Inspired by today’s Daily Prompt: Empty. And if this doesn’t fill you up, another empty-themed poem can be found here.

His smile drew
Each passerby
The twinkling in his eyes
Suggested magic and mystery
Well dressed, well kept
Politeness dripped from his outstretched hands
He was a perfect trap
Until you got inside
Then you realized he’s
Empty

Is It Really That Hard?

Composed 4/24/13
Description: My eternal frustration.

All I want
Is a devoted heart
To match an able brain
Passionate hugs
and kisses too
More topics than the rain

If I am
Philosophical
If I want some good ideas
He needs to be
Somewhat logical
To keep me safely sane

But if I feel
Alone and dreary
If I want his loving touch
He needs to express his love
Clearly
That’s not asking for much

I want
His mind
I crave
His heart
I need quality of each
This seems simple
But why does it
Prove so out of reach?
