The Earley Edition has officially moved to My dot com, that is. Thanks for joining me.

You used to make me so happy.
What happened between us woman?
Now contempt replaces joy. Once
A smile, now a fleeting glance, your
Jokes now make me cringe,
Laughter, replaced by silence.

Silence. Woman, this isn't what
I desired, affectionate misery. Why did
You push so hard? This isn't what
I had in mind, your demands of
Unrequited love. What made
You want to test my affection?

Test? A TEST? All it has done is
Turned me away. From you. From love.
Your experiment result indicates
Only yourself. If my love must be
Tested, yours cannot be trusted...
I wrote this when I'd been going out with a girl for about 9 or 10 months. The relationship at that time was really on edge, and no, I wouldn't say this poem really helped that. It wasn't intended to express my feelings to her - more of a personal release - but she ended up seeing it (we lived together at the time). It would have been written sometime between February and April 2002.
What's with all the poems?
