Biography of Shelly Price
'Never be afraid to feel love...be more afraid not to'.
My poetry is written about the most exquisite emotion known to mankind...LOVE.
My poems represent the turbulent and often overwhelming feelings and emotions that I have experienced while in love. I have written about many colossal emotions...passion, lust, pain, joy, ecstasy, betrayal, anger...all centered around being in love or being heart broken because of love. I offer my poetry to you so that you may feel some of what I have felt...in LOVE.
May each of you find your true love in life...never stop looking for it until you do.
Shelly Price Poems
Inadequate Words For Thank You
I know the words I'd like to say to you... to give thanks for all that you've done. But each time I try to say the words... they escape me as fast as they come.
A Single Tear
Shadows dance on the walls as I lay next to you, I'm hypnotized by your breathing as you sleep. I feel an overwhelming sense of peace within me, which has caused a single tear to roll onto my cheek.
Closed eyes can see, lips upon lips. Thoughts empty of resistence, bodies filled with urgency.
Does He Already Know?
I've tried to write these words, so many times before. To say the things that are in my heart, to the man that I adore.
My Soulmate...My Destiny
I have loved but one man in my life... one man that I loved who didn’t love me. I tried to get him to open his eyes, but his eyes were shut and too blind to see.
I Will Love You
For all the days of my life... I will love you. I will love the beauty of what was meant to be,
Our Last Goodbye
As we each said our last good-bye... each mistake rolled through my head. I tried so hard to block them out... all the ugly things we said.
When Love Become Affliction
When love becomes affliction, there's not much one can do. Despite the way you don't love me, I'm still deeply in love with you.
When We First Kissed
I close my eyes to see your lips upon mine. Your thoughts empty of 'I shouldn't'. your body full of 'I must'.
My Lost Soul
Somewhere in the darkness... buried beneath the debris. There's a soul that's been lost... the one that lived inside of me.
What We Are To This Love
You be the wind within my hurricane, I'll be the center of your raging storm. You be the hills that make up my valley, and I'll be the sun that keeps you warm.
I Search For Myself
Overwhelmed by my sudden show of emotions... It's hard to know how to even begin to feel. I'm trying to see through what I now know is fake... so I can somehow get a grasp on something real.
The Woman I Am
I'm known as the defiant one... My life is full, my life is fun. I dance at dusk in the moonlight, and I play at dawn in the sun.
Happiness Is...You Loving Me
There's a certain kind of magic, that exists within your eyes. It's there I can see what I mean to you… It's there you loose your disguise.
A Single Tear
Shadows dance on the walls as I lay next to you,
I'm hypnotized by your breathing as you sleep.
I feel an overwhelming sense of peace within me,
which has caused a single tear to roll onto my cheek.
This tear has fallen, fallen for all the yesterday's,
for all the pain I've caused and for all the sorrow.
A single tear has fallen to wash away all my wrongs,
to make way for love in our life together tomorrow.
