Jessi Odom Poems
The Pros and Cons of LOVE
love, oh, love, is a thing of beauty, and a response to love brings joy most truly. an 'I love you' sets a heart on float,
I extended my hand to far again I thought the distance had no end It should feel good giving like this But instead my love was dismissed.
How can you be so mean And then the next minute treat me like a queen? With words you give, oh how sweet, But your touch delivers a poisonous treat.
A Letter to A Friend
Dear Friend, I hope you always seize the day And make a name, find a way.
Writers Block-Love Letter
I stayed up late, half past twelve I had to tell you how I felt. The thoughts all lingered in my head
I searched for it like gold and pearls I looked for it all over the world. I had to behold it, yes it had to be mine!
Somebody Should Have Told You
Somebody should have told you, you were the shining sun's ray The yellow that paints the sky, and makes the perfect day. Somebody should have told you that they needed you around
My Poetry Thing
I told my mom I need a 'thing', you know like what other people have. A thing with singing and a thing with drawing to make a name and a path. She told me my 'thing' I had was writing poetry. 'But everyone does that, it's no thing', I tried to get her to see.
I extended my hand to far again
I thought the distance had no end
It should feel good giving like this
But instead my love was dismissed.
I gave to much of myself again
Extending my means until no end.
I thought you be happy to see
The giving person I had in me.
I took and gave to someone else
