Too Many Voices

A Poem By Erin // 2/16/2013

I. Too Many Voices

I’m dizzy, my head is spinning
My feet swerve across the floor
Which way should I turn?
I can’t make the choice
Too many voices are calling my name
This ringing in my ears is creeping into my mind

II. Slowly Breaking Heart

What I wouldn’t give to just spit it out
Get it over with
Have you tell me no, it can’t be
At least that way, my heart might not break quite as slowly

III. My Valentine?

I liked the way you looked at me
When you showed me a secret that nobody else knew
I liked the way you talked to me
As if we had known each other forever
I liked the way you asked about my life
As if I really did matter
I liked that I can’t stop smiling
I hope you feel the same

IIII. Your Blue Eyes

If I could grab your hand, I would
I wouldn’t hesitate for a second
We could run out, live in the woods
Build a cottage, make a farm
Raise our babies underneath the stars
We wouldn’t need a thing, darling
Nothing but your blue eyes
The only problem is this cage
That's been keeping us apart

You know, I love the way you create little stories in your poems and everything is so visual. I liked Breaking Heart. :) And the others as well, but that one more so.

Thank you so much! I

Thank you so much! I appreciate that, because poetry is definitely the thing I struggle with the most.

I liked that I can’t stop

I liked that I can’t stop smiling
I hope you feel the same

Love those lines! :))

I really loved "Slowly Breaking Heart" It was just really emotional and expressive... well more than the others. Really they are all expressive and filled with.... awesomeness! I love it!
