Sunny is a single mom who works two jobs.
She loves the written word and writes poetry
and short stories. She reads her poetry at
poetry slams. Below are three of her poems
which she has kindly agreed to let me post.
Enjoy….

The Girl in the Yellow Dress

The girl in the yellow dress
Stands and smokes her cigarettes
And she regrets
Not saying the things she feels

It is a perfect day and the way
The sun hits your face makes her want to
Say, “hey, let’s get out of here”

But out of fear
She does not
And she ought to just let it out
But she’s in doubt
Because without you
Life would be so blue
It’s true

And so

The girl in the yellow dress
Stands and smokes her cigarettes
And she regrets
Not saying the things that she feels.

Do You Love Me?

Do you love me?
Or are you afraid of being alone?

Last time I called
You didn’t pick up your phone.

And the time before that,
You spoke in a different tone.

So.

Do you love me?
Or are you afraid of being alone?

The last time I saw you,
I felt chills in my bones.

And the time before that
Was filled with touches and moans.

So.

Do you love me?
Or are you afraid of being alone?

Clothes

I still have your pajamas,

They’re in the bottom drawer
But the funny thing is
I don’t wear them anymore.

I still have your t-shirts,

Clean and tucked away
They sit there in the darkness
They never see the light of day

I still have your sweater,

It’s hanging on the rack
It serves as a reminder
That you’re never coming back
