My Day | POEM

My Day
Written by: Chris Williams

Kisses start off my day
And whenever she is away
She is my only thought
Oh, what love has brought
To me is beyond words
She gives until it hurts

Every day is an adventure
I know that much for sure
She makes those cold nights
As warm as the sun's light
And if I turn up my charm
My day ends in her arms

You Are My Everything | POEM

You Are My Everything
Written by: Chris Williams

You're the light that shines
You're the hope that finds
Me when I need it most
You keep me alfoat
On these rough waters of life
You are worth all the strife

You're the water that I need
And the air that I breath
Everything is so clear
When you hold me near
You're my life's blood
I live because of your love

You're the road leading me home
There's no distance you've gone
To prove just what you do for me
It took a while but now I can see
All the happiness that you bring
You know, you are my everything

My Poems Are For You | POEM

My Poems Are For You
Written by: Chris Williams

I realize my poems are for you
So you know every word is true
You are in every single line
And in every single rhyme

The words flow freely and fair
Like locks from your dark hair
The stanzas are formed nicely
Like the curves of your body

Everything fits perfectly in place
Just like that smile on your face
when you read my words, they're proof
That all all my poems are for you

I Can't | POEM

I Can't
Written by: Chris Williams

I can't stand on my own
Don't want to be alone
I don't know where I belong
But you touch my face
And I know my place
All the pain is erased

I can't wait for your kiss
What did I do to deserve this
When you're away and missed
I always feel so weak
But you give me strength
Everytime our eyes meet

Dark moments when I can't see
Your love is a light to help me
You're the air that I need
There's so much love you give
You're who I want to be with
Without your love, I can't live

Unstoppable Love | POEM

Unstoppable Love
Written by: Chris Williams

In the beginning, I gave you my heart
You were the one who found the spark
No matter what the opposition
I'll never change my decision
Had no idea how things would go
But this is all that I know:
We have an unstoppable love
With never-ending kisses and hugs
Every morning I wake up with you
It hasn't been long, but time flew
And now I kiss you good night
You make everything alright
That's how I knew what this was
That this is an unstoppable love

My Heart | POEM

My Heart
Written by: Chris Williams

It's in the palm of your hand
Please, be gentle if you can
Don't let it fall and shatter
You're the only one who matters
So, give it tender love and care
Breaking it is too much to bear
Give it a kiss, or hug it tight
Keep it wrapped up at night
It will never ever fall apart
When you possess my heart

My Legacy | POEM

My Legacy
Written by: Chris Williams

I'm the man, I'm the myth
I'm legend in all this
This is all my legacy
My poem's are memories
Whether good or bad
It's the life I've had
I've loved and I've lost
These are tales of the costs

This is the story of my life
My happiness, and my strife
Tales of the girl of my dreams
The loss of friends, it seems
Its the tales of victory
That live in my legacy
Fight back, come unwound
When things get me down

In my life, things have gone
Either right, or wrong
I triumph with a smile, a joke
Come out a winner, and I grow
Both in mind and in spirit
Folks'll know, when they hear it
How true are these stories
How true is my legacy

You're Where I Belong | POEM

You're Where I Belong
Written by: Chris Williams

I know you are by far
My life's greatest part
I just can't believe
Our love came with ease
You have done nothing wrong
I know you're where I belong

I was smart from the start
When I handed you my heart
You can do whatever you please
As long as you do it with me
There's so much love you've shown
And we haven't been together long

You're the light in my dark
You are the very spark
That brought out the real me
And I know as far as I can see
You've been my future, all along
I know you're where I belong

Tell Me | POEM

Tell Me
Written by: Chris Williams

Tell me when
Did life begin.
Was it with you?
Tell me again
How I've been
Good to you.

Tell me why
You're so shy
Towards my touch.
Tell me how
I can wow
You oh so much.

Tell me about
All the doubts
That I erase
Tell me to
Stay with you
Now and always

My Friend | POEM

My Friend
Written by: Chris Williams

You were supposed to be
Here until the end
You no longer like me
No longer my friend

Don't Know what I did
But you, I have hurt
Didn't mean to do this
Seems to only get worse

I wish to start again
Sort out this whole mess
I dearly miss my friend
I still love ya, regardless

It Isn't Cool to Be Me | POEM

It Isn't Cool to Be Me
Written by: Chris Williams

It isn't cool
To be me
I was a fool
Acted stupidly
Doing what I
Thought was best
Don't know why
I caused this mess

I hide the pain
Under a smile
There's only rain
has been for a while
No sunshine here
Only the loss
Only the fear
Alot it has cost

There's nothing left
Deep down inside
There's no one else
At my side
Everyone is gone
Away to stay
I'm all alone
Going my own way

What Makes You Love Me | POEM

What Makes You Love Me
Written by: Chris Williams

What makes you love me
The way that you do
Naw, you're not crazy
Yeah, I love you, too

Your hugs always send me
Right over the edge
Whenever you kiss me
For more, I always beg

I feel so secure
Wrapped in your arms
I know that for sure
You'll keep me from harm

It's incredible, it seems
The way things are
So, what makes you love me
I haven't guessed so far

Close Your Eyes | POEM

Close Your Eyes
Written by: Chris Williams

Just close your eyes
And I'll be there
Imagine me by your side
Playing with your hair
Please, just lean on back
And try to take in this
Moment, and just relax
and allow me to kiss
You on the cheek
Or perhaps on the lips
Your knees get weak
As my hands find your hips
Everything feels so right
It can't be wrong
I'll be your guiding light
Until you're home

Try and Hide | POEM

Try and Hide
Written by: Chris Williams

You can try and hide
Those feelings inside
But I see it in your eyes
There is no mistake
It's written on your face

You give me a wink
Then my heart sinks
I'm beginning to think
You're dropping hints
I don't even have to squint

It's just as plain as day
I can't miss it, no way
Just come out and say
What's on your mind
Then love, you'll find

It's the sway of your hips
Makes my mind start to slip
There's a tingle on my lips
Says I can't take all this
I need just one little kiss

Go ahead, try and hide
Everything under a lie
It's easily seen in your eyes
And as I knew it was
You, my dear, are in love

Killing Me | POEM

Killing Me
Written by: Chris Williams

So, this is what it takes
To support the life I lead
This trying to make
A living is killing me
I don't know how to handle
All this work, and friends
I think that my candle
Is burning at both ends

This feeling isn't fake
I'm tired as I can be
This trying to make
A living is killing me
It's catching up so fast
It's not all that funny
I'm out there busting my ass
And it's only for money

With everything it takes
I can barely stand or breath
This trying to make
A living is killing me
It seems harder each day
But I push on through
What's it all for anyway
Why is it that I do what I do

Help Me to Sleep | POEM

Help Me to Sleep
Written by: Chris Williams

Please, help me to sleep
She's only in my dreams
And that's where I wanna be
She's the best thing
She's what completes me

She makes everything okay
And always lights my way
I wanna spend everyday
Wrapped in her arms, I pray
That she won't stray

So, I'm hoping each night
She'll make everything alright
I need that woman by my side
There's no way I can ever hide
What I feel for her inside

So, help me to sleep
She's the girl of my dreams
I don't know what it all means
But I can tell that it seems
She's everything to me

What Do I Have to Do | POEM

What Do I Have to Do
Written by: Chris Williams

What do I have to do
To get a girl like you
Where do I start
To win your heart
I can't do anything else
Other than being myself
Maybe I should see
If you feel like me
And we can start from there
I'll show you how much I care

How much do you think
Your heart might sink
If I would start to flirt
You'll never ever get hurt
That's one promise I can make
This is a feeling I can't shake
You're always on my mind
It will be so hard to find
Anyone who will compare
So, love me if you dare

I hope we can see
Where this all leads
I hope you will be mine
and everything will be fine
What would you say
If I asked you today
Do you wanna be my girl
Let's give it a whirl
So, what do I have to do
To get a girl like you

I Run to You | POEM

I Run to You
written by: Chris Williams

Her leaving me still hurts
Early mornings are the worst
But every night I run to you
I don't know what else to do
You tell me it will be alright
I make you laugh until you cry
Who knew laughter was a good start
To mend someone's broken heart

I find it so much easier to sleep
You've replaced her in my dreams
You're pretty and easy on the eyes
You even help to sooth my mind
So, in return I make you laugh
Until you fall flat on your ass
I guess we've come to believe
I'm just your comic relief

When I'm with you, things are said
That help me get her out of my head
The way she left, she left so fast
Burned me so bad, turned me to Ash
I'm glad I have finally risen again
I want you to be here until the end
Because I don't know what else to do
But in my times of need, I run to you

Why Can't I Be? | POEM

Why Can't I Be?
Written by: Chris Williams

Why can't I get her out of my head
Why can't I forget she ever said
Good-bye to me, Why can't I be
Strong in my time of need

I always cry when I hear our song
Sleepless nights go on and on and on
It seems, she's just a memory
I just wish it would leave

I'm trying to patch up my heart
Its hard to do with all the scars
She left in me, and in my dreams
She's always haunting me

I'll never ever survive this hell
I bet she's taking this so well
At least, She's stronger than me
So, I ask myself why can't I be

A Place for My Heart | POEM

A Place for My Heart
Written by: Chris Williams

I no longer need my heart
Because of what she did
So wait until its dark
And place it with the pyramids

You can go all the way to China
The Great Wall would be a good home
Or at Stongehenge you could find a
Place on one of the stones

Tie my heart to a rocket
And send it into space
Put it in your pocket
Or some other place

Throw it into a furious hurricane
I no longer need it here
Drop it into Lake Pontchartrain
Its lovely this time of year

Send it to a deserted island
And place it beside a coconut
Somewhere along a stretch of sand
With beautiful scenery and such

Battle with the Devil | POEM

Battle with the Devil
Written by: Chris Williams

When that devil decides to come around
I'm gonna stand firm, stand my ground
I'm not going to let him get me down
I will kick him in the teeth
And Watch him as he bleeds
And just wait until he leaves

He came around here to me last night
At a moment, I wasn't feeling right
I know He wasn't planning on a fight
But I was sitting on that ledge
With him pushing me over the edge
Had I fallen, then I'd be dead

He showed that demon-toothed grin
And I wasn't about to let him win
I just didn't want to give in
You could hear the thunder rattle
Because it was a hell of a battle
No longer will I be in his shackles

Life | POEM

Written by: Chris Williams

Life has been good
Like I thought it would
I've met so many folks
Told so many jokes
I will leave my mark
In each and every heart
I meet along the way
I'm gonna enjoy everyday
For as long as I can
Until I can't stand

You live and you learn
So you won't crash and burn
Watch as time goes by
It's a hell of a ride
Love is just a step away
You might find it anyday
Let no one get you down
As the world spins around
Keep doing what you do
And you'll make it through

When Love Comes Easy | POEM

When Love Comes Easy
Written by: Chris Williams

When love comes easy
Everything is smooth
Your heart's so busy
And everything is cool
You're feeling great
And you hope it lasts
It's like a parade
Yeah, it's a real blast

Your heart is reeling
Your mind is dealing
With emotions in your brain
I know it's driving you insane

When love comes easy
Life is looking good
Your heart's so busy
It feels like it would
Maybe burst into flames
Or it just might explode
Nothing will be the same
And I know it will show

Did She Cry When She Said Goodbye | POEM

Did She Cry When She Said Goodbye
Written by: Chris Williams

Things didn't work out the way I planned
I guess she couldn't see me being her man
I loved her eyes, her smile, and her nose
But now she's gone, I guess that's how it goes
I thought we would always be together
So much for us making it to forever
I loved everything about her
So, it gives me no reason to doubt her
Loving her wasn't a cool thing to do
She left me crying here like a fool
I don't remember any tears in her eyes
So, did she cry when she said goodbye?

My friends say in time the pain will go away
My curiosity is something that's here to stay
I can't seem to remember her being hurt at all
I know I'm still feeling the effects of the fall
I'm drowning here in my own tears
Wondering what's out there leaves me in fear
Moving on would be so much easier to do
If I could climb over the next hill or two
She told me about all her pain
So, I feel bad when I complain
That I didn't see tears in her eyes
So, did she cry when she said goodbye?

Friendly Advice | POEM

Friendly Advice
Written by: Chris Williams

I hate to call you, but I need your help
Today, she just packed up and left
I thought it was some bad dream
But the reality of it really hit me
I'm hoping that you can recall
One night, sometime last fall
You were all alone, crying on your bed
I was hoping you could remember what I said

You thought it might be needed again
So you took your journal and a pen
Marked down every word I told you
Could you repeat them, now that I'm blue?

She said: I know it hurts with her gone
But you have to be strong, life goes on
You can't keep on looking back
Happiness won't be found like that
Look ahead, and you'll go far
Keep on reaching for the stars
So, don't dare fall apart
We're gonna mend your heart

I thought this was an interesting idea, actually. A man gives his friend advice during her breakup, which in turn gets back to him when he is seeking for her to help him out during his breakup. Don't ask. I really don't know where all this comes from.

And before a certain someone can complain about me being "depressed". . . I'm not that depressed, but let me deal with this my way. Really, I'm fine. *ahem* Despite the prior poem "It's Getting Better All the Time," I'm not lying to ya. I'll get over it, eventually.

It's Getting Better All the Time | POEM

It's Getting Better All the Time
Written by: Chris Williams

Last night I told a lie
When she asked me if I was alright
I had to smile and let her know
I couldn't let the hurt show
It's funny how one can cover it up
I wish when the hits come I could duck
Its not that simple these days
I can't keep your memories away
I'd be lying to you if I said
I finally got you out of my head
I still remember when you were mine
I can barely walk a straight line
Seems like I'm going in circles
Moving slower than a turtle
So, I let a little white lie shine:
It's getting better all the time.
