Joan Marques Poems
Distinguished are those Who ever experienced the agony Of a heart torn apart By the loss of something dear
You, to me, were like tomorrow Always just a day away Sometimes I would get so close And you'd seem only a minute from me
Time In A Bottle
Imagine the catastrophy If we could capture time in a bottle Lasting would not only be delight But also moments of emotional throttle
A Lost Day
Lost is the day in which you have not found fulfillment in any area: work, private, or social. Lost is the day in which you have not found a reason to smile: not about others, and not about yourself.
The Other Side Of Justice
Driving on the usually well-paved, Broad streets of L.A. I sometimes wonder If those who have always lived here
There, on the floor, Lies my romantic moment. Shattered to pieces By an inconsiderate word.
As the dirty water seeps From the outdoor 'room of ease, ' Forming a fusty puddle, in collaboration With dry leaves, rotting olives,
Mood swings are Like bittersweet stings Drugging you With thoughts
I was dreaming And you were dreaming And I thought that - in the end - Our dreams would come true...
The older he grows The quieter he gets Is it his nature Or does he have regrets
Vacillating mind Infinitely disturbed spirit Subjugated by continual exposure To the pretense

Be happy here and now For tomorrow, the standards may have changed And the factors that are in place today To contribute to your happiness
The Soul Of Love
The soul of love is in the self It's captured in the heart It can't be stored on ledge or shelf It can't be thorn apart
Loneliness is a complicated affair
Oftentimes it can be found
In highly improbable situations:
Within those that seem stable and sound,
Engaged in seemingly happy relations
Yet, haunted by a sense of despair...
