    i used to think it mattered.

    The things that I go through.

    I thought I had it handled.

    Until it came to you.

    Your life is so precious.

    My failures are so huge.

    I thought I had it handled.

    Until it came to you.

    Your future will be shattered.

    More fractured than my past.

    Errors in my judgement.

    Are now come to pass.

    How can you be punished,

    For these things you didn't do?

    I thought I had it handled.

    Until it came to you.

    Magnified and so enlarged.

    Compared to what I've done.

    If anyone is punished.

    God, let me be the one.

    They are what I live for.

    Though live I don't do much.

    I wanted to protect them.

    Keep them safe from harm.

    My example did the opposite.

    More like a giant bomb.

    And now I see the empty spots.

    Hollowed from their souls.

    I am to blame for this.

    This is what I do.

    I thought I had it handled.

    Until it came to you.

    Ah, a poet among the singers here at LSI............... Is the poem about anyone in particular meaningful to you?

    There's more than one poet among you now. I won second place in the KY state contest. I am also a writer of romance novels and superhero books.

    We've had many people post their poetry over the years. We have a poem corner if you'd like to post there.

    Hi LovesongJ:

    When you said:
    “ There's more than one poet among you now. I won second place in the KY state contest. I am also a writer of romance novels and superhero books. ”


    I am reminded that someone here (in Randomness I guess #177?) asked if there were any famous people among those viewing/members here...
    Guess if you are a published novelist and superhero book writer (not to mention 2nd place in a whole state's Poetry Competition (only a mere 49 more to go to become US Poet Lauriet of course!) (I checked... its easier than that: Article all of that should qualify you as "famous" , correct?

    Good luck with whatever you're currently doing, and post more often (referring to your just having 2 posts here)...

    It is deeply personal and sharing isn't easy. My mom is a published poet and erotica author, though she ghost writes the later. I hope it touched you each in some way. I posted it in Poem Corner, so thank you for the heads up!

    You're welcome, though my post was more for the benefit of the person who felt the need to comment just to talk about themselves.

    Tons of poets up in this bitch. I still claim the title of Poet Laureate around here, though.

    Sorry, Aseret. Some people posts poems only for money.

    It's okay Olivia. I need money, but poetry is more about opening my heart and soul. I actually have done an entire lesson in iambic pentameter just to mess with my students!
