Maybe I Should Be Ashamed… (Spoken Word Poetry)



Quiet of new-born day,
Darkness still flooding my bedroom,
Silence shouting for attention,
Ink blackness, shielding reality…

And yet, I’m thinking of you.

Early morning commute,
Trance of passing cars,
Radio, unrecognizable hum,
Challenges, thousands,
Work worries abound…

And yet, I’m thinking of you.

Evening approaches,
Day’s work done,
Dinner, immemorable,
Fatigue, grey steel heavy,
My last awake moments…

And yet, I’m thinking of you.

Wrong, so many would say.
Fixated, so many would say.
Unreasonable, so many would say.


Here is what my heart would say…

Breath, every breath,
My spirit underway,
Love, the final destination,
This world around me,

Beyond blood,
My heart pushing,
Life through me,
Next new day’s dawn,
Dawns only for you.

Each moment awake,
Awake for singular purpose,
Your grace, your gift,
Inhaling life,
Fragrance only of you.

Maybe I am wrong.
Maybe I am fixated.
Maybe I am unreasonable.


Maybe I should be ashamed….

But maybe,

Just maybe,

I’m in love with you.

    1. Thank you Tara….so much! Not just for the comments but the typo alert as well! That was definitely an error, and really appreciate you mentioning that to me! It’s amazing how many times I can read something and miss the obvious.

      And, I’m not going to delete/edit your comment because I think it is so thoughtful that you did mention it.

      Thank you!

      1. Oh…I don’t know what to say other “thank you.”

        Judy, you are so very kind. You have such beautiful and superb writing, and to know that my words are impactful to you is so very special.
