Prose for Thought – a Poetry Linky (#Prose4T)

Welcome to my second week of the new poetry linky, ‘Prose for Thought’, a great new place to link up with all your original poems and prose.

A big thank you to Sarah from The Puffin Diaries for joining up last week with her beautiful poem entitled ‘Light and Shade’.

This week’s poem was also written as a song. ‘Again’ has it’s own tune which came to me very easily and has been composed and played by a good friend of mine, Angela McCarthy a very talented musician. Somewhere I have a copy on a music file so one day I might build up the courage to share it!

‘Again’ was written on 23rd January 1995 about the ending of a relationship I was in. When writing it, I found I had finally turned the corner and, although I was upset, I realised if he wasn’t interested in me then he wasn’t ‘the one’.


Here I sit again not knowing what to do

Confronted by confusion all down to you

Do you know since that fateful day

Took your love away

Didn’t want to stay

That I don’t know what to say to them

All those other men

Please come back again

No, don’t say it’s the end


Here I go again, my thoughts spinning round

My head in the clouds, feet firmly on the ground

But those feelings haunt me again

Those ones way back when

More than just good friends

You told me that you really cared

All those times we shared

But now I’m feeling scared

Oh yes, I’m really scared


Here I am again, all by myself

Need to find someone, shouldn’t sit on the shelf

But the feeling should be so right

Is my goal in sight?

Could it be tonight?

And no second best, it wouldn’t do

‘Cause yes, that was you

And no, it just won’t do

Find someone who needs me too

    I can really relate to this poem, it can be so hard to get over relationships and come to a place where you’re truly at peace with them
