This page contains some of the beautiful poetry sent to me by email, snail mail and ICQ. Some of the authors are unknown and others are known to me and are properly credited with writing the poems.
The following poems were sent to me by my friend Kate from Adelaide. I met Kate through ICQ and MediaRing. When she heard I was going to create a poetry page she sent me the following poems. In a way the first poem here I can relate to with the changing of a few words.
I heard a song that stirred my heart,
The words were very touching
"God , give me strength" was what she sang
It could have been me talking.
I need that strength, I need it now
My world is torn apart.
I am to blame, I know I am
I don't know where to start.
I was a wife, I was a mother
A worker and a friend
There's nothing left inside me now
I want it all to end.
The world I knew has been destroyed
By those who said they love me.
I need to find a way to put
The pain and hurt behind me.
So, "God, give me strength" to find a way,
To face the start of each new day
And give me strength to trust again
Perhaps, then, I'll be okay.
"From the Heart"
As I surfed the net that night
And chatted to a few
Little did I dream, that soon
My life would begin anew.
We met, we talked, we laughed a lot
And even then I knew,
hat you were someone special..
Now what was I to do?
I asked myself "Who is this man?
Why can't I stay away?
Each time we talked, I liked you more
I wanted you to stay.
I see your face upon the screen
The laughter in your eyes
Can you really love me?
Or is this a web of lies?
My trust in you begins to grow
And I love you even more.
I wonder if, I even dare
To open up the door.
Time has flown and months have passed
And I shed a single tear
For you are all I ever wished for
And I always want you near.
I love to feel you in my arms
The warmth of your desire
The passion that we share together
Ignites a burning fire
One look, one touch
Is all it takes
Our love so strong
My body aches.
I close my eyes and feel your thrust
Your body entering mine.
How can something that feels so good
Be anything but divine.
I am so very lucky
To have found someone like you.
I thankyou for your gift of love
And everything you do.
I love you
As you talked, I felt your charm
It's warmth enfolded me in calm.
I listened to the things you said,
The dreams, the hopes inside your head.
My body warms as you describe,
The way you feel when by my side
The passion that you feel for me,
Grows from within just like a tide.
Is this love, you say you feel,
More than you or I can steal?
We both have other lives to lead.
And I must take all that I need.
I feel the words from deep within
Do you want me? Is it a sin?
What is real? I cannot say.
I know I want you every day.
Your sweetness melts my icy heart
If we are to love, let us love well
Give to me your heart and soul
It will be worth it, I can tell.
I can give you pleasure
Such as you have never known
For it will come from deep within
Reserved for you alone.
Lay with me my darling one
and let me in your heart
Take all I have to give you
And we'll never be apart
I never dreamed, that I would find
A love like yours, in this lifetime.
Our hearts, our souls were intertwined
You are forever on my mind.
To feel the love and tenderness
With every delicate caress
I really thought "This cannot be"
"How can this be happening to me"?
So warm, so soft, so very right
You touched me far into the night
We kissed, we loved and kissed some more
I wish I knew what is in store.
Forbidden love is dangerous
I feel you are regretting us
Think long and hard before you go
Or perhaps its best we never know.
"To those who I have loved"
What do I do that I deserve
To get hurt the way I do?
All I do is love too much
And believe they love me too.
Each time I give my heart to one,
Who, I think, is for real
They tear it into peices
Will it ever heal?
I love with all my heart and soul
Live and breathe my life for them.
They take my life and toy with it,
Then disappear again.
My body reaches out for love
I long to be desired.
I am a fool, I know I am
I am so very tired.
I wonder why I bother
To love anyone at all?
It's not worth all the pain I feel
When they let me fall.
Deceit abounds upon the net
The lies a tangled web.
I am the fly that walks right in
To be devoured again.
Someone Like You
I don't know where to run to
I don't know where to hide
It's hard to keep these feelings
Bottled up inside
I don't know how to say it
Exactly the way I feel
All these things inside my heart
I don't know which are real
My heart's been through a lot lately
Although it's been broke before
Waiting for someone is never easy
Love is something you can't ignore
There was a thrill when he walked by
And trying to choose our song
But there were many hard times too
When i'd cry all night long
I remember things like the way he walked
And how he held my hand
How he'd call to say nothing
But somehow I'd understand
I remember talking all night long
It was hard to be apart
But I will always remember
The day he broke my heart
So now i sit and think of him
And the times he made me cry
If i had a choice of love or death
I think I'd rather die
I think of all the memories
All of which i hold so dear
They really make me miss him
Really wish that he were here
There were some good times we had
He was my greatest friend
But i know inside it's always true
That every love must end
So now I guess I've said goodbye
And that's all that I can do
And suddenly it's hard to believe
I've met someone like you
