This is a very personal poem that I wrote several weeks ago. I had been content for about a year since first moving here to Maine; not happy or sad, just content. Suddenly a beautiful girl pursued me unexpectedly, and we fell head over heels in love and began moving super quickly; it just felt right. I went from content, to euphorically happy, to devastated and heart broken in the matter of two months, all from a Facebook friend request.

Letter from the Ones Who Hurt Me

This is a poem that I just wrote this morning, using the metaphor of me being a broken car. I typically live in the past and stop often to think about the past, but I need to shatter my rearview windows and rust my brake line so I have no choice but to move forward in life and look towards the future.
