I’d Rather Hear Your Voice Again

Brooke Cagle

They say all the right things.
I meet them all the time.
I have a great time with them
but then I go home and think of you

I’d rather hear your voice again.

They make me feel happy for a little while.
I pretend like I have forgotten about you.
I don’t mention your name.
I don’t tell your story but honestly,

I’d rather tell your story again.

Sometimes they even sing for me
and I fall in love with their songs.
It’s a song I haven’t heard before
but then I go home and sing our song

I’d rather hear your song again.

Sometimes they leave without a word
and you’d think it would hurt me
but it doesn’t even get to me anymore.
I don’t even think about them when they’re gone.

I’d rather think of you again.

Sometimes they fall in love with me.
They promise me forever.
They promise to always be there.
Still, I can’t get myself to fall for them.

I’d rather fall in love with you again.

Sometimes I just like being alone.
It’s better than settling.
Better than being with the wrong person.
So I choose to be alone but honestly,

I’d rather be alone with you again. TC mark

This Book Will Help You Let Go

“They think you’re mine and I’m yours. They think there’s a love story going on behind closed doors. They think it’s only a matter of time before someone tells them the truth they’ve been waiting to hear.

We roll our eyes when they joke about us being an item; we laugh at how ridiculous they’re being. But deep inside, I’m crying. I’m crying because what you’re taking as a joke is what I wish could be real.”

Hi! Here’s Some Amazing Poetry For You

“I hope your learn how to love yourself the way you love others — unconditionally and without hesitation; deeply, and from the softest parts of who you are. Because isn’t it a shame, that we are so quick to forgive the humanness in someone else’s soul, but we often forget to forgive ourselves. Isn’t it a shame, that we fight for others, we believe in them with such intensity, and such hope, but we often forget to fight for ourselves.” — Bianca Sparacino ✨

“Seeds Planted in Concrete is a very empowering read. It reminds you that you should love yourself first before anyone else.” — Alyssa
