Why Should I Wait

Every time I think of you I smile,

I’m really in love,

I can’t say it enough,

That’s how I feel,

I deal with so many other problems you are a bright spot in my dark world,

Just the thought of your smile makes my day better,

I use you as motivation to reach for more,

God knows I have no idea where she came from,

If I had one guess I would say heaven,

She is an angel to me,

God thank you for her I know you have blessed me,

I will never wait to tell her how I feel.

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.

    It appears like you define the punchline / last line first and then build the poem – it is a marvellous style. I have done this too. It creates the craving to read on, and on till the end as that’s where the climax is building up to. Thank you for the wonderful post.
