My Stress Relief

Fella, life pulls us in so many directions. There are so many emotions and memories that we experience. That is why I wanted to tell you what a stress reliever writing poetry is for the college soul.

I am set on track to recieve a degree in Criminal Justice. I want to be a police officer. And as an elective I took a creative writting class. I figured since I like writing, it would be so much fun. And well, as it turns out. I was entirely surprised by the therapeutic nature of creating poetry. A melody for our words. I fell in love with it. In my class, we shared and completed a poetry portfolio. After that I just kept writing poems. Take a look and let me know what you think!

A degree.

So unsatisfying.

I could sit here with coffee,

Just writing.

Defying all for I am crying.

An inside cry that keeps intensifying.

I am sighing.

For all the days I am buying?

Why am I, not yet, flying?

I know, what a sad outlook. But that class made me realize the hobby that makes me truly happy which is writing. However, my degree is still the same. For it is my passion. Writing is only a hobby.

Here’s more. It is about someone special.

No, no, I don’t love you.

Just all the things you do.

Your character.

The things you say.

The way your hair glints in the sun.

When your laugh escapes your lips.

No, I don’t love you.

I know I do not.

I just want the heat of your hand in mine.

As we brave all the rest of our days.

But I will not,

More importantly, cannot say I love you.

Love, I am telling you,

I don’t just love you.

I don’t even know what I, you.

Um, yes. My heart set on fire for someone. I have more love poems relating to that and more poems just about love.

I am just now deciding to add this last one. Enjoy.

Swallow me holy

As the devil drives our car

Into a deep abyss of privacy

Nothing will be like the past

Sip slowly to make me last

This is a very discussion based post. I would love to hear your thoughts. No matter who you are, how old you are nor where you are from. I simply enjoy learning others view points. Hit “like” if you enjoyed reading!

What did you think of the poems? Do you write poetry? Comment when you can! Thank you ALL!

Love, IsabellaFella

  1. Hey Isabella! I’m also a CRJ major! I’m so glad you’ve found something special in your creative writing class. I’ve found my electives really helped me discover new passions I didn’t know about until taking the class. For example, I took a philosophy class and fell in love with that too. Your poems are really lovely, I look forward to seeing more!

    1. Hey Gianna! First of all, thank you so much for reading. I am so happy you like my poems! I will be posting new ones soon. And I am thrilled to meet another CJ major! Philosophy books amaze me, that is very cool you could end up really loving it! I hope you continue to explore all of those electives and find what your heart calls for. Also, your blog is super cool! Thank you, again so much! 🙂
