Not a Love Poem

Not going to write a love poem.

Not going to look out there in that patch of space.

Where I loved someone more than I should have.

I sacrificed myself out there, lost pieces of me.

Not going to write a love poem.

For something that wasn’t.

I am a published poet and short story writer. I have been published in SNHU's the penmen review. is the link where you can find my poetry and a short story. Previously, I self-published my novel "Bully Another Day," "Short Stories and Vignettes", and a poetry book "Spaces between the Pause" on Amazon/Kindle. Due to abysmal interest in my self-publishing venture, I have unpublished those three projects, as well as my poetry book "Life at the End of the Rainbow." However, I plan to be more aggressive in trying to find a traditional publisher for these projects.

  1. Beautiful poem yet so strong that tells of a decisive mind of an awakening person.At this point there is nothing you can do to win such a person back again.

    Thanks Jenny for sharing this beautiful piece πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
