Uninvited

A Poem by Sunflower

Get out.

You’re not welcome.

Don’t come back.

Keep your “I’m sorry”.

Keep your “I need you”.

Keep your “I love you”.

That’s not going to make it better.

I don’t believe you.

Stay where you were.

Eat what she cooked.

Don’t make the recital.

Don’t come to the party.

Forget my phone number.

Forget my address .

Forget my birthday.

Forget our anniversary.

Our expiration date has been reached.

So…I Am – A Poem by Sunflower

I am – A Poem by Sunflower

I am beautiful
I am wonderful
I am creative
I am loving
I am spiritual
I am light
I am soul
I am free
I am everything I need to be
I am mother
I am wife
I am daughter
I am sister
I am friend
I am lover
I am fighter
I am author
I am everyone I need to be
I am pressing on
I am moving on
I am dreaming on
I am running on
I am singing on
I am writing on
I am keeping on
I am seeing on
I am doing everything I need to be
I am fearfully and wonderfully made
I am above and not beneath
I am no longer a slave, but an heir
I am more than a conqueror
I am healed by His stripes
I am justified and redeemed through faith by His grace
I am called according to His purpose
I am planned to prosper, have hope and a future
I am everything He said I should be

So…Love Just Isn’t Enough – A Poem by Sunflower

Love Just Isn’t Enough

A Poem by Sunflower

When dinner is needed and there’s no more chicken

When the kisses of the kids are the only affection I’m given

When tears on my lips are my only memory

I try to taste your love but it just isn’t enough

When the cabinets are bare because your check didn’t come home.

When the lights need fixing and I can’t reach the box

When the cable is off and the kids want to watch cartoons

I try to see your love but it just isn’t enough

When the cake in the oven has cooked just enough

When the garbage needs to be taken out

When that bottle of Eternity tips over on the dresser

I try to smell your love but it just isn’t enough

When the baby cries and is inconsolable

When the alarm goes off and your side of the bed is empty

When the phone rings and I hear her voice entangled with yours.

I try to hear your love but it just isn’t enough

When the night is cold and I wantyou beside me

When my desire is high and I want you inside me

When my heart aches from the cuts of your lies

I try to touch your love but it just isn’t enough

Sometimes love just isn’t enough

Not enough to bring you home

Not enough to keep me warm

Not enough to…

When I Did Not Know Your Name

A Poem by Sunflower

I liked it better when I did not know your name.

I didn’t long to hear the rich sound of your voice.

I didn’t long to inhale your intoxicating fragrance.

I didn’t notice when you would come and go.

You were just another soul existing in the same plane as me.

I liked it better when I did not know your name.

I didn’t want to feel your smooth skin beneath my fingers.

I didn’t wait for your calls in the wee hours of the morning.

I didn’t wonder if you were thinking about me when I was thinking of you.

You were just someone in the crowded room watching, just like me.

I liked it better when I did not know your name.

I didn’t remember your eyes staring back at me in the dark.

I didn’t need to find a reason to talk to you.

I wouldn’t be disappointed if you didn’t do what you said you would.

You were just another trying to make a way.

Now that I know your name,

I’m constantly reminded of the mistakes I’ve made.

I’m repeatedly regretful of the choices we chose.

I’m left with the burden of knowing what I know.

You’re now just another who made it clear that you’re not worth my tears.

I liked it better when I did not know your name.
