Always Love

I’m not perfect, don’t you mind
I’m not a winner, don’t go blind
I work hard and try my best
I do that and God does the rest
I think, write and draw
I am human not made of straw
I have soul and heart
I didn’t get the head start
They are angry, they never chill
They should start now or they never will
They criticise and continually speak
But they do not know, I’m not weak
I know life can be hard and it is short
Knock walls down and go build a fort
Just stand freely and let them see you cry
If they don’t want you. bid them goodbye
Cross the road, change paths and run
You can choose to be free and just have fun
If they can’t accept you for who you are
Ignore them, walk away, they will never get far
Just remember to have faith and hope
You will make it, you can cope
Just pray and hold the dove
Just remember to always love

The Way I Saw You

Your eyes so brown they turned to gold
To you which my heart I sold
Kept it with you and marked it deep
Day and night, awake and asleep
You treasured it forever and held it tight
From a time of darkness, you are my light
Told me you love me and from then we’ll never stop
Touched my hand and caressed it, you won’t let me drop
We can’t stop now when it’s already started
You held me and promised to never let go, we never parted
You made a promise, a dream, a deal
You were to keep it for you kissed me to seal
That promise, that dream, that deal
By keeping it, you are all I feel
Your touch so gentle and kind
You read my heart and soothed my mind
You stay by my side and just hold my hand
Slip right through my fingers like golden sands
Your promise will remain no matter what
We see a happy ending and that is that 

Finally

You laugh, I smile
You stay, I’ll stay for a while
You get angry, I’m angry too
You love her, I love you
You broke up with her, I danced around
You snore in your sleep, I don’t make a sound
You cry, I want to cry with you
You are so terrible at lying, I know it’s true.
You pretend, so do I
You’ve tried, it’s my turn to try
You look at me, I can’t look away
                                                                      (RINGGGGG! There goes the bell)
You continue to look at me, I decide to stay
You talk now and I listen
You lean in, the space between us lessen
You kissed me, I kissed back
We whispered ‘I love you’…
                                                                               Finally!

Opposites Attract

Hot like winter
Cold like summer
Loud as a whisper
Silent as a drummer
Small as a whale
Large as an ant
Fat as a piece of paper
Thin as my dad’s pants
Up went the rain
Down went the kite
In went the poo
Out with all its might
Serious as a monkey
Silly as a business man
Ugly as a princess
Pretty as an orangutan
If the world was topsy-turvy
It would be you and me
But since it’s not, then…
Let’s make it happen!

First Kiss

We were walking without a care in the world
You were listening, listening to my every word
It was perfect like any other day
And you were all I needed to say
But then something was not right
The sky become dark, no longer bright
Everything felt lost, gone away
The happiness faded, it went astray
The rain poured, dripped to the ground
I looked to see but no one was around
It was just you and me, standing there
Cold, Soaked and couldn’t go anywhere
I looked at you, you pulled me close
Held me tight but still gentle as a rose
It was all silent, not a whisper or hiss
Right there, you and I had our first kiss.

The Dream

We started as friends, but I really want to be more
Time to stand up and open the hidden door
I stepped inside and saw us two
It was like watching my dreams come true
You were holding my hand, making me laugh
Your kiss, so soft, I just can’t get enough
Out of all those guys, I think you’re the one
This is only the beginning, it isn’t done
You held me tight and promised to never let go
Your touch is so gentle, perfect, nice and slow
The look in your eyes makes me smile
When you’re with me, it makes it so worthwhile
You wrap me in your arms to tell me it’s fine
Then you pulled me close and whispered ‘Will you be mine?’
I was about to answer, when I awoke from a dream
Or so I thought cause it seemed…
It turns out dreams do come true
Because when I woke up, I woke up next to you.

Real Trisha
Well let me tell you this I’m not always nice
I can be mean and that can come as a surprise
Don’t mess with me I like things just the way they are
Present time is where I’m happy not near not far
So just go away ,bite your tongue and zip your lips
By the way, I think your fake, Ms photoshopped hips
You may be queen of my head but you can’t rule me
I’m the real thing you’re a big headed wanna be

Now what to you say to that| brava dear turns out ur not so flat

Woe dem w/ ur looks & som flirty words
Den while he’s at work we can spy on ur ‘friends’
Laugh at deir mistakes & secretly poke fun at deir ‘trends’
U c u will always win as long as I’m in charge
Cuz I think bold bright & jst xtra large
Plus no 1 online will kno it’s u

Xactly. Excpt I’m da bettr twin| but I just can’t let you win
But darlin I already hav, game ovr| no it’s not better take cover

Real Trisha
You see you may judge and take a stand
But your thoughts don’t even reach my hand
Your mood is stored behind a filter
Huh? Hun, why do you look so bitter?
Your style and looks really highlights your physique
To bad it’s been done, turns out your not unique
Your insults are barely noticed, plus they are pretty old
Your opinions aren’t valid, dearie you’ve been told
From now on just stay in my head but stay cute
Keep babbling and mumbling, it’s okay you’re on mute
You think you’ve won well go look at you’r reflection
I hope you’re okay with this extra large rejection
Cause you’re behind a screen, just another online version
You’ve got to remember I’m the real person
Awwwwwww sorry… Gotta go… Please don’t shout
Not does it matter, see you soon, I’m….signing out!


This poem was inspired by a project I did for my first year at Uni where we had to create a form of self representation and I chose to create one for an online representation of the conflict decision to which side of you, you would like to portray to the online world. This was an early idea i had and it didn’t quite work out in the end but since I wrote the poem already I thought I might as well share it on here.
