A Poem by Hannah Grabarkewitz

A quick short poem I wrote to help deal with some unwanted drama.

I told myself not too, 
That I needed more time.
I shouldn't of listened to you,
I shouldn't of put my heart on the line.

Now here I am, again, hurt and scared
These feelings are too familiar for me
Makes me wonder why I even cared
How come I didn't foresee? 

Oh, But I did see!
'Never doubt a woman's intuition'
A saying I cant disagree
I should have just listened

To what my own heart had to say
Wait and let time heal
But I did things my own way
Now, I'm left to deal

I should have just listened.
Now no ones to blame
I should have just listened.
Who knows what I could have became!

Do you play chess perchance? If so, eventually you will play at the level of your peers - doesn't leave a lot of room to play better does it?

I did listen to this one... aloud... three times through. It has the emotonal content and impact. I could comment on that.

Did you listen to it? Really listen to the words and tones? Pawn to King-four...

Thank you for pausing at mine.

Ah, the realization that maybe if you had listened you could have spared yourself some pain. But we rarely listen to others outside of what our heart wants, as it should be!

Ah, the sound of realising too late that head and heart tend to be sparring partners :-)
Nicely done. Has great flow and quite a musical feel to it.

I haven't been writing as much as I used too. In fact i'm quite sure I have lost my touch. I am 21 years young, in the business of Insurance, and trying to find my way around this big 'ole world .. more..
