D J Tyrer – 3 poems 


Change your appearance

Being who you want to be

Seeking acceptance

Forging ahead with your life

Despite the stares and comments



Always I am fearful to overreach

To ruin what I have through greed

To exchange a penny for a chance at a pound

To exchange good for a shot at great

I dare not reach lest my grip should fail



Without you, I feel so alone

Your presence is my life’s warp and weft

How can I ever reconcile this

Without you I am utterly bereft

Your love is something I’ve never known

Something I must do without

Your presence I so sorely miss

My love for you I long to shout

But my heart demands I stay silent

Our love is clearly just not meant
