Poems by Matthew W Pollock


Covering Your Side 

Your empty shadow, as I restlessly sleep
Hugging your pillow, day dreaming deep
The scent of your love, i know all to well
Covering your side, missing you like hell

Hours tick past, just watching the clock
Eyes getting heavy, a wide away shock
Waiting just for us, till we cuddle as one
Covering your side, until the rising sun

A message vibrates, knowing your tune
Says you miss me, you’ll be home soon
Smiling my rest, your night-shift so late
Covering your side, waiting of loves fate

Door slowly rattles, then your gentle kiss
Our souls now together, a butterfly bliss
Locking of eyes, shifting back to my side
Now holding you tight, always with pride


Explaining Depression

Sadness a symptom, just another cost
Broken hearted shadow, feeling all lost
Guilty to my core, without logic reason
Explaining depression, my dark season

Emotions in reverse, clouding the light
Never eases up, trying to sleep at night
Anxious in silence, dizziness to speak
Explaining depression, the other cheek

Smiles in disguise, seeking no approval
Trying to blend in, attempts now frugal
Butterflies that sting, stomach in knots
Explaining depression, firing last shots

Never an excuse, to justify our wrong
Broken records, the never ending song
Answers on paper, whitewashed event
Explaining depression, a rhyming vent
