14 Line Poem | Short Poem No. 13

A 14 line poem about love:

As I walked into the room I stuttered.

I couldn’t believe what my eyes did see.

But an image of pure beauty fluttered

before my eyes – a dream of what to be.

There, she was sitting down, relaxed and calm.

While my heartbeat crept fast and wouldn’t stop.

She laughed, as if she held me in her palm

strings controlling my marionette top.

14 line poem

Why can women be so cruel to young men

By burying our hearts with just a laugh?

And giving us short glances now and then?

Shooting their perfumes to us like a gaff?

Or did the girl not know the games she played?

Did she not make the moves I thought she made?

Don’t Quit | Short Poem No. 12

Don’t quit, stay.

Every day I see your faces.

Different situations, different phases.

A mom with A dead stare wondering who will be there.

The enthusiastic man wondering if he can.

Don't Quit

The girl with hopeless love wondering if she’s enough.

The man in chronic pain, slowly going insane.

Everywhere there’s different faces.

People going through different phases.

But you have to know it’s just a phase.

You have to believe it will be okay.

And, sometimes, there’s nothing else you have to do

but stay.

Guerlain Vetiver | Short Poem No. 11

Guerlain Vetiver.

It’s familiar, yet different.

Like something lost in time.

Something of the smell the quality,

I picture an old English wood. A wool suit.

And as I write my poetry,

it takes me to another place.

A place by a fire, a bloodhound by my feet.

As I whimsically write away,

even in a newfound accent I’ve discovered myself to have.

Guerlain Vetiver

If I was an old Englishman, living in an old world,

I’d be the king of the country.

But, no, I live in the day of bubblegum and soap.

So, today, Chanel it is.

I may not rule the old world, but at least I’ll rule today.
