False Justification

my photo

You know my name

 Yet you see me no time

 You hear my words

 Yet you give me no rhyme.

 You tell me little reason

 Yet you say things on cue

 You protect what is valid

 Yet live what is not true.

 You search for a purpose

 Yet you miss what is there

 You yearn for the realism

 Yet you scorn when it’s here.

 You cry alone inside

 Yet your play is collected

 You scene steal the moment

 Yet turn good to rejected.

 You can ignore love today

 Yet look for it when you sleep

 You can pretend its right there

 Yet the pain you always keep.

 You deny one who holds you

 Yet so cherished in his heart

 You justify what you need

 Yet you blow off our start.

 One thing is a real thing

 One guy is not quitting

 One dude is a warrior

 One girl for his fitting.

      Hi Corinne –

      No girl in my life, silly, but you’re right about the poem being about a girl a long time ago. This is remembered rewrite from a poem I did, lost, and rediscovered in the back of my mind. 🙂

    Excellent poem Charlie, Winners never quit and quitters never win. Win her heart and live happily ever after…

      Hey Sulekha –

      “Winners never quit and quitters never win.” I don’t have a girl to win over any heart of hers, lol. BUT, there was a time when a portion of the original poem was largely based on your comments above. Thank you for that. 🙂

      Hi Debra –

      She was a confused mother playing games with guys she shouldn’t have been playing. She was also quite stunning and grabbed a hold of my attention for a short time. I’m glad nothing transpired for a moment in time, I was latched by her spell. 🙂

      Hello Brenda –

      I’m so happy you enjoy my poem. This is a re-write today from a poem I had recalled from years ago. I had lost it in a computer crash so I traced some of it back from memory. Super comments for me to hear. Thank you so much. 🙂

    Glad you managed to trace the original back to memory. It was well worth the time to piece it back together. Great poem)

      Hi Jessica –

      I used to have so many written works when I was younger. Most are all gone now. A few survive today. Thank you for enjoying my poem. 🙂

    Been missing you much Brian. I pray everything’s well. Your words are light. She must have been so much influence as you write about her constantly… Lovely poem 🙂

    You know Charlie we humans are never satisfied with what we have. We keep yearning even when we have it all. But I am sure glad you dont look at things that way. You dont quit, you dont give up. Liked your style of writing this poetry.

      Hey Rimly –

      That is human nature isn’t it Rimly…to reach for something…to attain it…and then not be satisfied with it! I’m not sure I really have a poetry writing style or if there even is a name to the erratic style I write with. However, I’m very happy you like my style and my poems. 🙂
