Controlling Love

Controlling Love short poem

Photo by kevin dooley

Don’t try to control you
when I want my own way.
I am confused at the things that you say.
It’s not control to want these things
that everyone else gets so freely.
To be cherished and loved by you completely.
You think its control because you don’t want to change.
You like where you’re at, everyday is the same.
Refusing to move forward, you like playing your game.
It shows when you give out of want,
You don’t have to pretend. You don’t put up a front.
I can see, your true feelings they show
That you are stuck on the past,
refusing to let go.
That is why you think its control
You don’t give freely, your love doesn’t grow.
Hoping the tides someday will turn
In reality you lose, bridges you burn.
The cycle repeats and you’re in it again,
Playing the same game
with someone new instead.
Live in the moment, let go of the past.
I didn’t want to control, only wanted your best.

Poet’s Note:
This poem is about someone refusing to let go of the past so that they can have a better relationship in the present. They think they are being controlled when they other person actually wants to be loved completely by them.

An Love Agony At 10:30 short poem

At 10:30, Silence Dispersed,every edge withdrew with dark, The moon was pale, still brightening as diamond spark, At the tree, an owl hoot, at surface dogs barked. Sudden, I heeded, the sound of footsteps was appearing from the street, exulted
