A Collection of all my Poetry from my childhood to the present. Everyone piece of work is meant for a feeling emotion or situation she has been through. It is up to you to interpret her poetry’s meaning to you.
I wrote this poem after I hit rock bottom in Texas. I was unhappy with my life, my decisions and the jerk I was with, but I kept talking myself into dealing with it. Then he left, went home to Alabama, and I was able to get a break from his bullshit, and I found resilience. The poem was how I felt about my ability to move forward from the wreckage. I may have allowed him to come back into my life, but it was never real. I hope you enjoy.
Explanation: This poem was written a long time ago back in 2008 when Kevin and I welcomed our son Sebastian into the world. We were together from May 20, 2005 until August 15, 2013 when we separated. We are still in the process of filing our divorce. This is how I felt at one point during my marriage to Kevin Froehlich. He is a good man and gave me my perfect baby boy, Sebastian.
I loved you then as I love you now,
I feel you in my spirit and I know you somehow.
Here I stand seeing you from a distance,
You make my heart jump out of my chest for an instant.
You are the love I fell for before I knew you,
And you are the tender beat that gives me the life I always knew.
