Sometimes I Write Poetry….


Sometimes I will write you poetry.
I don’t expect you to enjoy it.
I don’t have any expectation at all.
All I ask is you let me.
That’s not even right.
I don’t need your permission.
I’m going to write it anyway.
You may read it.
You may not read it.
I don’t care.
This is all for me anyway.
This is all just therapy.


Hearts Touched
By Emily Schmidt (me)

I often wonder
In this anonymous world
If these poems written by strangers
Were ever written
About me
In a passing glance
When for a moment
I was not anonymous
But became their “she”
And I wonder
How many hearts I have hurt
And even broken
Perhaps it would pain me
To know those secrets
Either because
Of how many lives I have wounded
Or how few I affected
