My Next Ebook: Love Poems

April 25, 2014

10th April, 2003

The whole world is going to have to smile
Without any help from me!
I’ve had enough of laughing along with a joke
Which I don’t think is funny!
Nothing makes me laugh any more,
Nothing is funny to me
Because of that horrid girl who didn’t even notice me
Not properly.

I’m not going to play along
With any cheesy let’s pretend we’re not all miserable bullshit
And trading insults does not make the day go by quicker for me
So leave me alone
And let me plan my revenge
Or at least my next meeting
With that maddening girl who never thinks of me

I do not go for walks in the park
Or next to the sea expecting to meet
With any greater kindness than the measly amount
Doled out to me by anyone and everyone
Apart from that miserable girl
Who relishes my pain and denies it exists
And says nothing to make herself more sympathetic
As if sheer beauty alone were enough.

I’m going on like this until someone smacks me in the face
Or perhaps I’ll just break down and cry –
No more than that, because “no one ever died of a broken heart”.
What a great comfort that is!
I won’t die, I will survive, but I won’t be happy, that’s for sure
And if there’s anyone in the world that I’m happier than
It’s got to be that terrible girl who would rather
Cause me pain.


[Beautiful eh?  That’s the first of a series of 32 line love poems I wrote back in 2003-4, which will be on sale in all ebook formats from next Friday.]

    Oh dear, The Poet to Watch. You have given your heart to someone who has broken it and is making sure it doesn’t ever mend. Not that the poem is autobiographical of course.


    • Course not!
