A Life Without You

A Series Of Poems

A Poem By: Martina Garcia

far from happy


will these words make sense even if we do not

could these short paragraphs really make you blush


i wonder what your brain holds

do i run through your thoughts as easily as my fingers run through your hair

as a writer words flow through me

but you leave me speechless

my fingers no longer glide across the keyboard with ease

instead they wonder if our fingers intertwined would feel just as smooth


i wonder can i still keep you even though you are not mine

because i want to write happy poems about you

but you do not know what you want

and i can not keep lying in these poems

we seem happy

but we are far from such a place
