Searching for you

Girl in the rain

I see you there in the street

I can’t take my eyes off of you, just a peep

It’s pouring with rain five pm

You shake your umbrella again and again

You don’t see me, I’m invisible

Unnamed and in your eyes feeble

How do I get you to notice me?

Could our paths cross? Is it to be?

You light up a cigarette take down a breath

On your telephone, what you gonna do next?

You look at me, just a glance

I’m staring at you in a trance

A smile crosses your face is it for me?

I think yes, maybe it could be

I wave my hand just to say hi

You wave your hand too, It’s a lie

I decide to move to approach you

My feet don’t move stuck like glue

This guy pushes past me, knocks me down

I start to pick myself up, I turn around

She’s hugging him, that pushy guy

Just my luck, she’s not for me. Why!

Searching for you is a collection of poetry about love, heartbreak and happiness. A raw journey looking at our search in life to find ourselves and that special someone.

Searching for you

Her

She don’t want me

Scruffy old me

I’m too skinny, no muscles

I watch as she flees

.

That other guy, he’s fitter

Look at his body, looks

I’m always reading comics

Or my head’s in a book

.

Not interesting, not at all

Like watching pain dry

Just plain old boring

I’m not gonna live a lie

.

She doesn’t notice my hair

My clothes as I try to impress

It seems just like

I’m trying to pass her test

.

I’m sure we like all the same things

Many common interests

If she could only know me

She wouldn’t care about the rest

.

Swallow my overwhelming fear

I’m approaching her, try to talk

I freeze solid in front of her

She smiles, my heart starts to stir

Searching for you

Him

.

He doesn’t want me

I’m not good enough

I’m ugly

Bit of rough

.

Why would he be interested?

I’m not pretty

I’m jealous

Lots of insecurities

.

He won’t even notice me

I don’t even exist

His lips are perfect

Just one kiss

.

He’s ignoring me

No matter how much I try

Do I not exist?

He’s making me cry

.

Am I not even your type?

Not pretty enough for you

Can’t you see my efforts

Invisible shining through

.

Notice me, speak to me please

He’s approaching, what do I do now?

He’s going to say something

I can’t move, have to talk, how?

Searching for you

Forever happy

.

I wait just to hear your next word

You have me here like a sheep in your herd

Spending time with you is effortless

I study your movements, every geste

How you talk, how you smile, when you’re happy

When we cuddle close, warm, hugging gladly

The silent moments never awkward, never too long

When we sing together along to your favourite song

When I joke and you laugh with your little dimple

And that spot on your face, your little pimple

Your perfect in every way you’d ever need to be

That’s why I love you, and hope to stay forever happy

Searching for you

Is this love?

Perfection may never come

Maybe it does not exist

The most important thing in love

Is knowing love exists

Pass time together

No matter what you do

Talk often and listen too

Let the warmth shine through

Watch the sunset

Feel the rays warm your skin

Take a deep breath

Let that oxygen in

Picnic in the park

Glass of wine a treat

Look into her eyes

Like the first ever meet

A stroll in the park

Hand in hand sheer bliss

Hours pass by walking

Finished by a single kiss

Let your heart take flight

Forget insecurities passed

Embrace that chance given

And know it will be the last

Searching for you

We are a team

.

When I think of love

I look at others

What they have

In front of them

.

I think of us

What we are

How we live

And then

.

The days we pass

Together, apart

And all the

In between

.

Others perfect

Sure they have cracks

May be not

What they seem

.

We make it work

Through everything

Strong and the

Between

.

Our imperfections

Matter not

We are strong

And a team

.

Searching for you

Love for a poet

.

I hear you my dear, what you’re saying to me

You are my teacher, you are making me feel free

It is like a drug that I want more and more

Each time I see what you do and your lore

You insense me with literacy deeply fulfilling

Almost in jealousy at your words so thrilling

Are you calling to me? Are you just musing?

Am I imagining, winning or losing?

Your words filling my mind

Secret messages I try to find

This impulse, this feeling inside is ripping my heart out

Because I don’t know for sure and I need to shout

Thinking thoughts that should not be thunk

Hit so hard by your beauty I feel drunk

Maybe for now it is not the time

But rest assured you help me to rhyme

You inspired me before and you will again

Thank you for your kind words, rest a friend

Searching for you

The half that completes me

I miss you when you’re not here.

It’s all so quiet without you near.

I miss how we talk, how we get on.

Making you coffee, having a sing song.

Our little regards, our little lovers tiffs.

My forgetfulness, our lovers bliss.

You make me who I am, me to you too.

Our explosive couple, just us two.

At the end of the day you know how I feel.

I love you babe and always will.

Searching for you

I missed you

I missed you while you were away

I’m waiting to see you today

I’m looking forward to hugging you

Because 3 days really hasn’t flew

It’s been quiet here, alone in bed

Quiet each time I lie down my head

Coffee for one each morning just for me

No extra spoon of coffee, not to be.

It won’t be long, you’ll be here soon

I’m at the door, my heart going BOOM!

Searching for you

That first love…maybe

That first time when you’re young and you see a girl

Her beauty overwhelms you, and it hurts like hell

She’s so beautiful in your eyes

You steal glances, you’re magnetized

Wait till she’s not looking, looking away now

That innocent smile, oh my God, wow!

Do you dare talk to her? What do you say?

Go on, take your chance, maybe today?

He he hello how are you is what you could say?

But how would she react, would she stay?

Your eternal shyness is getting to you

Come on, just once, try and follow through

That first magical love could be right now

If you don’t try once, you’ll never know how.
