    Here's a poem I wrote

    for a woman I'm seeing and am crazy about: I love the way you talk, It touches my heart. Love the way you laugh makes my heart go pitter-pat. Your smile is contagious makes my day bright, everyone around rejoices in delight. Guess there's only one conclusion you are a...

    I have a heart for sale.

    It is romantic, passionate, loving. Recently described as kind. It is not just perfect for a grown-up, romantic, caring woman but it’s good fun for the children too. It’s definitely not heavily used as it’s been lying in the shed in the last several years untouched. Low...

    Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong

    era. Romance today is so different from what it should be. Romance today can often be one person looking at the other, nodding, and saying "hey" with the other doing the exact same in response. What happened to the old art of romance?

    I like to think I'm an artist,

    Yes I'm a hopeless romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.

    The worst feeling in the world is

    when she tells you that it will never happen, yet your feelings persist. Every time you talk to her after that is just a reminder of how close, yet so far, she really is. It's like being feet away from food while you're slowly starving to death, but you just can't get to the...

    I lay here at night & I think about you.

    I close my eyes & I dream about you. I wake and you're the first thing on my mind. I still read your letters & press them to my lips. I still look at your photos and touch your face. I yearn to hold you again and feel your skin against mine. I miss laying my head on your chest...

    He left me more than a year ago.

    So I was at the park

    and there was this group of guys playing volleyball (two of them were pretty cute). I wanted to go talk to them except I hadn't washed my hair, looked like crap, and was ultimately too shy to do anything. They've left and I currently feel very disappointed in myself.

    It wasn't fair to you.

    Transparent to the world,
