Biography of Temperance Joy
My poems are inspired by anything and everything. From the rain outside my window, to the pain of a broken heart. From a day in the sun, to a night on the town. From songs to movies. Anything can spur a creative moment. A book. A song. A quote on the board. Creativity can't be called upon. It can't be summoned. I keep a pen in my hand and paper in my purse, always ready to write something down. It never fails. Live life like that, and you will never miss a creative moment.
Temperance Joy Poems
You Were Right There?
I thought of you today. I thought of you and ran away. Away from the pain, away from the tears.
Homesick. What is home? Where the heart is. I have no heart.
Drugs can destroy a family Even worse Destroy a life. Scary. The difference just one choice can make.
'He touched me.' A painfull realization. For a child, A forbidden conversation.
They Judge Me
They judge me. Watch me as I walk Eavesdropp as I talk. They hear it and they gossip
I'm the music in your earbuds In the headphones, sending subliminal messages through your ears I'm always there I'm the spirit that makes you move to the beat whatever it may be
Forgiven but not forgotten The deed is never undone Sometimes i wonder if My battles were ever won.
More Than A Game
Its time to say goodbye You've found someone And for you I'll try To find someone
No Matter No Mind
Running in circles Talking in squares no matter no mind never avoiding the stares
Staring out my window, Safe here from the rain Sitting on my bed. Never safe from the pain.
Failed love letters. A ring on a chain. Fingers laced together In the cold pouring rain.
Embrace Your Weakness.
A cut was made. Just a scar remains. One after another. Leaves behind bloody stains.
The Lesson In The Mistake
A dream interrupted, a love not shown. Leads to the pain I fear has grown. Nothing can stop me cause no one will see, The pain and guilt my past has brought me.
Murdered By Love
Save tonight For it may be the last Our love and our dreams Will soon be in the past
Failed love letters.
A ring on a chain.
Fingers laced together
In the cold pouring rain.
All the cold in the world
Couldn't freeze through my heart.
All the hands in the world
Couldn't tear this apart.
This love that i give you
