Seeing You Again

by

Julie M. Briggs

I think about you all the time
I try to write poems but I can think of no rhyme
All the memories came floating through my mind
It seems like this always happens to mankind
Boy meets girl, and they fall in love
But for some odd reason from above
One of them always has to go
And leave both their hearts filled with woe
My fondest memory is our first kiss
That moment overshadows my grief with bliss
Sometimes it is very hard for me to cope
But then I think our good times and it gives me hope
Of seeing you again


I Don't Know What It's Like

by

Julie M. Briggs

I don't know what it's like
to come home sometimes and just cry
to scream or yell for no known reason
other than the fact that I just can't help it
I don't know what it's like
to not know who I want or what I want
to not know who or what I am
or why the hell I'm here
I don't know what it's like
to be stuck between the life I live
and no life at all
clinging to life with one weak hand
I don't know what it's like
to have you run your fingers
up and down my chest
to feel the patterns your nails make
I don't know what it's like
to be turned on by your flesh
rubbing against mine
to be close to you
I don't know what it's like
to return your kisses
to touch your beautiful manhood
to feel it respond to my caresses
I don't know what it's like
to freak you
to feel you climax within me
over and over and over again
I don't know what it's like
to have an orgasm
to feel you exploring inside of me
playing with my body
I don't know what it's like
to feel you suck on my nipples
making little tight pink rosebuds of them
kissing every inch of my breasts
I don't know what it's like
to collapse exhausted in your arms
to sleep without any cares or worries
to dream with you
I do know what it's like
to dream about you
to miss you with all my heart
abd to promise to be yours forever
I love you


Forgiving You

by

Julie M. Briggs

As my eyes fill up with tears,
The page begins to blur.
This happes every time I think of the years
When I was with you.
Words don't fathom the joy I felt
Every time I saw your face
But now, new cards have been dealt
And I must go on.
Every time you whispered my name,
I was overwhelmed by chills.
How can I leave you all the blame?
You promised to love me forever --
How could you deceive me?
We could have spent eternity together
Sharing our love, so happy in each other's company
How could you bring me so much sorrow?
How can I hate the person I worship?
How can I make it through each tomorrow
When I know that you're no longer there for me?
Why did you have to die?
You weren't ready
And neither was I...
If you can answer me this question,
I will be able to forgive you for leaving me.
I await your answer with much anticipation...
I need so much to forgive you.
I hate myself for hating you.
You couldn't prevent it --
God called you and there was nothing you could do
You had to obey Him
Who loves us all;
Him Who caused me all this grief
And made my heart fall
Down...down...down...
There must be a reason...
It's not your fault --
I forgive you


Someone

by

Julie M. Briggs

Written for Winfred "Capp" Stafford

All my life, I've dreamed of meeting someone...
Someone who'd make me smile...
Someone who'd make my life worthwhile...
Someone who'd do anything for me...
Someone who'd encourage me to be what I wanted to be...
Someone who'd hold me when i needed to cry...
Someone who'd listen without asking why...
Someone who'd be my very best friend...
Someone who'd be there until the end...
Someone who'd love me as a friend forever...
Someone who'd want to share special times together...

Capp, I've spent such a very long time,
But now I've finally found the rhyme
That puts the poetry back into my life;
A life without barriers of hatred and strife.
I ended my search the day I found you,
And I just wanted to say thanks for being such a true
Friend.

an attractive fellow...
with your sleek dark hair
and way of dressing,
you caught my eye immediately.
handsome, charming, intelligent,
funny...what more could I ask for?
quite a touch of class.
vague, hidden strut
that I distinctly remember.
unique laugh, rather contagious.
sexy, appealing, symbolic...
a replica of something I once say in a dream.
what are you?
a god...a dryad...or maybe a leprechaun...
explain yourself to me for I don't comprehend
the sense of gaiety and carefreeness you bring
around everywhere you go.
music, laughter, love...
peace...
they are all part of you, little puzzle...
let me put you together, piece by piece...
note by note...
smile by smile...
kiss by kiss...
let me understand your realm...
open the door that seperates
me from you...
talk to me,
let me know you.


Because I'll Still Have You

by

Julie M. Briggs

A lingering thought plays with my mind
As I'm caught in a battle between right and wrong
Listening with keen intent
To the voice in my head
Telling me yes
And with confusion, to the other one
Telling me no
I don't know who to obey
I am my own person
I should listen to me
Why, then, is it so hard to decide?
I want to say yes
Oh, how I want to agree
But something is telling me no
Maybe the countless times
I've been told to say no
Are catching up with me
Or maybe, just maybe
It's myself I'm hearing
It can't be my heart
For I love you with all my heart and soul
Could it be my mind?
But my mind is confused and wandering
How could it be my mind
When I know what I want
But can't seem to get it
I will stop for no one but
You
I know it's not you
Although you are already
A part of me
No matter what my decision is
I believe in you
And you believe in me
Why can't I believe in my own
Judgment?
Maybe because I want so much
To be with you
But there's that nagging
Voice
Telling me no
Showering me with guilt
Should I listen?
I know I'll still love you
I'll love you no matter what
I say
And you will believe in me
No matter what
I do
Making it even more special
For us
Using our trust
And belief in each other
I don't care
What I decide
Because I'll still have you
