Breathing New Life Into…Timing

Everything in life is about timing…

If she could see the look in my eye,

She’d have a better understanding of how I feel inside,

Maybe even realize I’m the right guy,

You dominate my thoughts,

I see your face everywhere,

You’re all I need to be complete,

All’s fair in love and war,

But that doesn’t seem right to me,

The situation was right,

The timing wrong,

I look around,

Only to find you are gone.

  1. Timing is everything. And it is so difficult when we meet a person and believe they could be someone for us, but only to realize that the timing isn’t great. But then again, if you can’t struggle through the time, maybe the relationship ultimately wasn’t worth it.

    This is beautiful though!


    • Well said. Timing, especially in relationships, is important for BOTH individuals. It can be right for one person but not the other, vice versa, or perhaps not right for either.

      Thanks for the kind words!

  2. It sucks right? I know how that feels. Beautiful poem Jarrod. Raw and real. A lot of your poems resonates with me. Thank you for sharing! 🙂


    • Thank you. Yes, love brings the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

      I’m glad they connect with you. I think that is the greatest compliment that one can receive being a writer. Much of my work emanates from my feelings and experiences, either directly or indirectly…
