I’m willing to change

I’m willing to change

I can’t believe it happened again
My will is gone, is this the end
My heart is broken I’m suffering
Things aren’t the same since I lost my best friend

And I tell myself a thousand times
Someday I’ll smile again
But until that day comes
I’ll do my best with coping

I wish you didn’t go
Why didn’t I know?
I took our love for granted
You left so unexpected
I wish you didn’t go

I need you in my life
I’m strong but now I’m crying
Believe in me
I’ll be a better man
I’ll change the way I am
And with you, I know I can

I’ll sweep you off your feet
I’ll show you how much you really mean to me
Our history won’t repeat
My change is permanent

You’ll see

Do I Need to Worry?

 Do I Need to Worry?

We’ve been together for a while
Your habits I have learned
I know your patterns and your style
Something’s changed, should I be concerned?

Now you hide your phone
You go off to a corner to be alone
It’s just a sneaky feeling
You’re acting so suspicious

I’m not the type of person that’s insecure
But you’re being obvious with your shift
I don’t believe in confusion
Your actions could end our relationship

I like to be straightforward and I am blunt
I asked you to tell me, is there something up?
In other words, it’s time to be honest, what’s going on?
Do I need to worry? Should I leave you alone?

I won’t keep questioning this for long
I trust myself, my intuition isn’t wrong
Things need to make sense some time real soon

I won’t worry myself, I will just move

I’m Over The Anger

 I’m Over The Anger

You think that I’m still mad at you
This is no longer the case
I’ve healed and I’ve moved on from you
I’ve accepted my mistakes

Sometimes love makes us take a turn
That we didn’t see coming
I’ve lost and I’ve been burned
But now my strength is showing

I’m taking all the misery
That you brought into my life
I’m using it to be a better me
I’m not going lie down and cry

Too many tears were shed over you
Now I realize my life is better without you
You contacted me the other day
I have nothing left to say

I will not reopen that door
You’re an ex for a reason
I’ll be foolish to open up to hurting more

You were in my life for just a season

Your Cheating Ways

Your Cheating Ways

How dare you say I’m blind?
I know that you’re a liar
You lie to me all the time
My rage builds up like fire
If you had to cheat
Then why didn’t you just leave
Why hold on to me
Let’s end this with some dignity

I knew something was going on
Your body language tells it all
You were acting different and distant
And then you made the wrong call
It’s funny how the truth always comes out
There’s no way to deny it
Your mistake revealed what was in the dark
And now there is no more trying

There is no excuse
To cause so much pain
I just wanted honesty
But all you’ve brought is shame
You broke up our happy home
Your deception did us wrong
I hope it was all worth it
No one’s in your corner and you’re alone
I gave you every opportunity
To end what we had
You begged me to stay with you

Why would you cheat after that?

What Are You Thinking?

What Are You Thinking?

What do you think about me?
Do you enjoy our company?
I want to know what you’re thinking
What are your plans and your intentions?

Can you see us lasting for the long term?
Or am I just an in the moment crush?
I need a sign and need some validation
I need to know that my time isn’t wasting

I do enjoy the moment
I enjoy what we have
But sometimes we’re in limbo
And confusion deals its hand

I don’t want to do anything
That will drive you away
But I need some confirmation
Or I’ll be the one to not stay

I’ve been through a lot of hurt
I have to protect myself
I won’t be treated like dirt

So step up and give me what I deserve

Chapter 4 – Heartbreak

Partial Chapter from the book ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''

Chapter 4 – Heartbreak

Heartbreak is one of the most painful emotions that can be felt.  I would not wish heartbreak on anyone.  It’s hard enough to fall in love with the right person.  When you add heartbreak into the mix, this creates fear, baggage and obstacles for any future love interests that you will have.

Have you ever been cheated on?  Have you ever cheated?  And if so, what made you do so?  This is just one of many things that can cause heartbreak.  Heartbreak can cause hurt and feelings of lost after the end of a relationship. 

It’s hard to know when to end a relationship.  Before I’ve ended previous relationships, I wondered several things.  Is this the right thing to do?  Am I rushing to judgment?  Should I try to make this love work?  Although those questions were thought about, the heartbreak at that time was inevitable. 

I’ve seen other people deal with heartbreak in different ways.  Some people jump right into something with a new person to help them get over the past person.  Others take more time to heal and they need time before trusting again.  Personally, when I’ve gone through heartbreak, I gave myself time to heal and I put closure to my past.  I’m a naturally compassionate person, so I don’t believe in bringing past baggage to a new relationship.


If you’re dealing with heartbreak, don’t suppress it.  Allow yourself to deal with it so that you can move past it.  With the right amount of time, heartbreak can heal.   It doesn’t mean that you have to stop loving the person.  However, you can get to a point where the heartbreak doesn’t have to paralyze you and poison your heart with fear of being hurt again.  This is the monster called Heartbreak.

You’re the Only One

You’re the Only One

You’re the only one
That I’m thinking of
We’ve fallen in love
You’re like the stars shining above

From the very first moment
That I saw your face
I knew that moment was it
Everything fell into place

When we first kissed
Everything was confirmed
This was no accident
We were comfortable with no concerns

As time moved on
Our connection stayed strong
You mean the world to me
I’ve seen how much we’ve grown

We keep each other centered
We have honesty
No bad thing will enter

You’re the only one for me

Love Me For Life or Let Me Go

 Love Me For Life or Let Me Go

Is this just my imagination?
Am I driving myself to unwarranted tears?
You confused me with our conversation
Will we have regret in a few years?

I wish you would communicate
And tell me how you feel
Tell me what is going on
Tell me what is truly real

I feel love from you
When we kiss and when we touch
We can be around each other for hours
We never get tired no matter how much

I don’t know what to do
Other than slowly back away from you
And if you truly want my heart
Then you’ll fight for it before we grow apart

You won’t let me walk out that door
Without crying that you want my love even more
And you already know my position
Our fate lies with your decision

I will leave our relationship in your hand
It will be your choice if you want long term romance
I feel what’s in your heart
It’s time to show me so that we have a real chance

So if you love me, please make a careful decision
I rather love you from a distance
Than to hate you when you’re within inches

Love me for life or let me go

Chapter 5 – Reconnect or Move on

Partial Chapter from the book ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''


Chapter 5 – Reconnect or Move on

I’ve been through heartbreak before and I know some of you have too.  One of the hardest decisions that some people have to make is what to do when someone you used to love resurfaces.  If it was someone that you deeply cared about and was in love with at some point of time before, it’s very hard to automatically keep that door shut.  Of course, there are exceptions depending on how the relationship ended. 

One of the questions that comes to mind is, ‘’Do we reconnect or move on?’’  I’ve dealt with this situation before in my life.  The first question that comes to mind is, why did the relationship end?  Was it over a trust issue?  Or was it the wrong timing?  It’s very nerve wrecking to wonder about the consequences of rekindling love with a past relationship. Will it be the same outcome that leads to the end of the relationship or will it actually workout? 

When I was faced with this situation, I asked myself two things.  Am I different now?  Is my past love different as well?  Did either one of us grow or make any changes?  If we are the same people, what is going to make the situation work a second time around?  Every situation is different. 

In my opinion, I think that it’s best to make sure that any decision you make isn’t based on just emotions.  The challenge is to make a decision based on balanced judgment.  This means that you should do your best to not only take emotions into consideration, but also look at the practical elements around the situation as well.


One question that you should ask yourself is, ‘’Am I a better person with or without this person in my life?’’  The answer to that question will help your decision as you decide if you should give your past love a try or if you should keep that door closed.  What will the answer be? Should we ‘’Reconnect or Move on?’’
