Confessions of A Writer #7: I Love Writing Poetry Too

Robert Frost Poem Image

As someone who deeply loves the written word, one of my favorite ways of expressing emotion is through poetry. So it should come as no surprise that I love writing poetry too.

Poetry is a form of many expressions, from anger to happiness. All it takes is only a few lines for poetry to move me.

I especially love reading poems out loud. I feel whenever I read a poem out loud, I can better hear the flowing rhythms of each line and how they connect to each other.

I love both reading and writing poetry because I feel like it’s a simple way of getting my feelings across. While my emotions in poetry don’t always get expressed the way I want them to, I still find it to be a nice way to write your feelings down.

Since I love poetry so much, I have a couple poems I’ve written and posted here on my blog. My favorite ones include “I Walk Alone,” “Cheating” and “Guarded,” “Victory,” “Welcome Home,” and “Forgiveness.”  I feel like each of these poems I wrote came straight from the heart and are full of the exact emotions I wanted to express.

What about you? Do you love poetry too? If so, are there any poems you’ve written that you’d really like to share? Or are there any poems written by someone else that you wouldn’t mind sharing too?

Victory (Poem)

Victory Pose

As I watched my heart get destroyed,

I’m still here standing.

 

Victory is mine.

 

Because while you’ve broken my heart,

You can’t take away my pride.

 

I used to feel so sad,

Of the way I felt about you,

But not anymore.

 

Not anymore.

No way, no how.

 

Because I’m not letting you,

Keep me broken anymore.

 

I’m going to stand up,

And cry no more.

 

What tears I have left,

Hold no power over me.

 

Because I’ve learned to let go,

I’ve given up on you.

 

I’ve given up,

On what we used to be.

 

We used to have so much,

But all of that is gone,

Because my heart doesn’t want to be broken anymore.

 

So watch my back now,

That’s the last thing you’ll see of me.

 

I’m done with this game,

And these lies.

 

So ready to love someone,

Who’ll treat me better than you.

 

Victory is mine,

Because I won’t let you keep me broken anymore.
