Just You


too many
transitions

too many
thoughts

too many
memories

I had to give
myself
permission

to do very
little today

I sat there
lamenting
this and that

I sat there
thinking

I have hope
in God

I hope my
books will
do well
someday

the ones
I’ve written
and hope to
write

our brief
flurry of texts
reminded me

how sweet
how special
it is to be
loved by you

wanting you
remains

loving you
remains

that’s enough
for me

just you

Poet, Writer, US Army (Retired)

I dreamed of writing when I was a youngster. The love of books and writing may have helped to dull the pain of severe sexual abuse as I was sexually abused by two men at my father’s place of work from age 8 to 12 or so. I learned about this for the first time when I was 50 years old. So, as a boy, reading was the only place I had to go to. My fantasy world was better and safer than my real world. I loved reading and writing.
Reading books and writing poetry are a joy to me still and are an important part of my life. (See my About Me page on my blog for the complete profile.)
