Miss A suggested a little bit back that as I have been finding old bits of papers I have written, I should share them. I decided that was a good idea. I have found a few poems and random things that either I or someone else has written. I will give credit as credit is due, but as a teenager, I didn't really understand or appreciate the necessity of writing down the author of some things. If any of you know where they are from and can tell me the ones I don't know, that would be great. This first one is from LeAnn. (If you hate that I put this up, let me know and I'll take it down. I just love it and love that you are such a romantic. It always makes me smile and I wish I had more.)
In afternoon, evening, and night,
I think, ponder, and wonder.
I cannot see if the tunnel gets bright
but I know there must be an end.
I feel trapped like I am in a cage,
I see him but he can't see me.
My heart aches so I scream and rage,
but it's no use, he looks at another.
I think to myself, "Why do I like him?"
For I know we never agree.
I start to close my eyes as the room grows dim,
will I ever find love?
