    My Poem 'Good Enough'

    Am i not good enough for you? What else do i have to prove? You've taken my heart, Torn it apart, And i cant take anymore, Turned away, And shunned me, Built me up then broke me down, Am i not good enough? I try very hard to be polite, To do all right, And listen to my elders...

    I Love Poems, Reading And Writing Them.

    For me writing poems is all about writing my experiences and not just that but also writing to relate to other's experiences. So not all poems are about me but also for others.

    Love

    Love shows its way in many ways, Love can be two doves, Love can be a kiss, Love can be a hug It can be a simple smile, It is loyalty, It is trust, It is without any lust, Love can be of any way, Love can hurt, But love can teach, Love can seem wrong, What do u think?

    Shame...

    This feeling of shame Is so deep within me Am I the one to blame For what I cannot be The want is so deep That it kills me slowly What can I do Because I feel lonely The person I should be Is slowly fading away I'm drowning in this pain And its me that I betray

    She Waited For Too Long

    She's no longer the girl who waited. Tears ran out, the memory faded. She tried to hold on but he was long gone. It slips like sand through her fingers. Forever the feeling lingers. He touched her heart, mind and soul. That love forever her goal. Never to be reached again...

    "No Escape" Writen By Ashley Houghton
