Flashback Friday – Teenage Poetry
So as promised, I’m doing Flashback Friday for my journal posts this week instead of TBT. And you are in for a TREAT my friends. Today I’m sharing some of my old “poetry”. Oh Lord, what am I doing? Let’s just dive in!
Without a Hello, Just a Goodbye
To set him free is important to me. God can only know how hard it is to let him go. But, the time has come for me to run. He’ll never know how my heart felt when I saw him. He’ll never know how my stomach churned if he looked at me. He’ll never see me…the way I saw him. So I’ll just say goodbye before I could even say hi. – BG 1995
So that one was written about “E” if you remember from my earlier posts. I had a crush on him for a long time but had this complex about talking to him and yeah. Angst, angst, angst!
I Can’t Fall In Love With the Right Guy
It’s not fair that the guys I like don’t like me back, or even find me to be decent. It hurts even if I never go out with them. It seems no matter how hard I try, I can’t fall in love with the right guy. Once or twice I thought I had found someone, but it lasted two weeks, or maybe two days. It feels as if they don’t know I have feelings. It seems no matter how hard I try, I can’t fall in love with the right guy. I’ve searched high, I’ve searched low. I’ve got no where else to go. No where to turn, no where to look. There’s no one left. I ask myself why? It seems no matter how hard I try, I can’t fall in love with the right guy. I’ll wish on the highest star in the sky…that someday I’ll fall in love…with the right guy. – BG 1996
Uffda. I think this was written after my brief relationship with “D”. Life is so rough when you’re 14! One more in the spirit of the holidays.
All I Want For Christmas
I don’t want candy and just screw the two front teeth. All this girl wants for Christmas is a guy that’s really sweet. You don’t have to gift wrap him or send him through the mail, but make sure he’s a gentleman and hasn’t been to jail. He’ll have to enjoy hugging and talking on the phone. He doesn’t have to be smart or rich enough to take me to Rome. Just as long as I know he cares for me, because I’ll care for him, so once I find the guy for me, my Christmas can begin. – BG, 11/1996
Well, that one is kind of cute I thought! And wow, my requirements were simple – enjoy hugging and talking on the phone. Sounds about right for someone wanting a boyfriend but couldn’t drive a car yet!
I hope you enjoyed Creative Writing 101 and I hope your’e all having a great Thanksgiving weekend! Laura has two posts up right now from yesterday and today so make sure you check out her Flashbacks too at One Girl, Two Cities!
