A Poem by C.J.G.

It use to be a struggle to get out of bed in the morning,

But now it’s a battle just to open my eyes.

It was hard to see his face without wanting it all,

But now it’s tears just from his words.


I find relief from the hope

I lose sight of reality from the dream

The dream of the future

To which provides the hope that keeps me stranding




It use to be a joy seeing his face every day

But now I see it was a gift

A silent miracle that only shows its true strength

When all has gone astray


Wishing for content in this detrimental world

Is almost worth begging for now

Small or large is meaningless when in the end

The feeling is universally





It’s a headache or a heartache

It’s a hand in need or a heart requiring repair

Whether it’s the lose of a love or the love for a lost

You feel miserably connected with them


You feel alone, without his heart on top of yours,

Yet you are flooded with love.

You feel broken, in lacking of his presence

Yet you are enclosed with hearts

I really like the structure of this poem with the word "strong" being used repeatedly. I think it adds impact to the meaning of the piece. I'd watch out for the tenses though ("It use to be a struggle" --> "It used to be a struggle.")

Keep Writing. ^___^
