The One

I always wanted to be the one…

the girl who caught you off guard

an unexpected

and powerful muse

the intended

of your thoughts.

I always wanted to be the one…

the girl you fell in love with

who got under your skin

whose words

pierced your soul

the lady who made a home

in your mind

that you did not realize

until it was too late.

I always wanted to be the one…

to love you in ways

you have never been loved before…




with my whole self

the woman you are proud

to call your poetess.

My darling…

you found me

messy and broken

a poet and baker

a clumsy dancer

not quite what one would want

in a lover

your exception…

I always wanted to be the one.

  5. The depth with which you are able to express emotion always sucks me right into your words, sometimes to the point where I can’t be certain that I wrote them, and then you stole them. This one hit me straight on emotionally.

      As a reader, I have been there. Where it feels like the words were pulled directly from me and placed on paper by another’s hands. It’s an amazing feeling to feel “seen.”

      As a writer, it is always my hope that my words will touch the hearts of my readers. I am happy to have touched yours. Thank you so much, my friend! Your support means the world to me!
