Poems by Collette

'Are you sure you love me?
I am broken'
'You're not broken 
And yes'
Proud
They grow so quickly
Hello new found freedoms
Damn
Goodbye child tax credit
Dancing to loud music 
Singing into the duster 
Fifteen again
For a few minutes
I could not stay 
Because I did not agree
With his vision of me
Life is damn crazy 
Contentment is based
On whether or not 
That is accepted
Life is damn crazy 
Contentment is based
On whether or not 
That is accepted
Hold me close to you 
Because it's there 
That I believe in love again
How things change
A year into a minute
So different now
I can breathe
A chance meeting
Immediate connection
My soul cries out
‘I need to know you’
Run
Do not walk
Towards love
It’s the only way
To avoid becoming broken
