I’d Rather Hear Your Voice Again

  • 0
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

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.”

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
