A poem my sweetheart sent me, we always send poems back and forth! We make each other cry a lot!

Without you I can't breathe,
Stuck in this hole and I can't leave!
I'm doin my best to stay so strong,
It's not forever so it's not that long!
You letters, visits, and telephone calls,
They make me free from within these walls.
I'm changing baby and not for the worse,
I'm doin it for us and to undo the curse!
Our times will get better this I can tell,
Before I get back to you, I've gotta travel through hell!

Dinky,
Great poem. I really like it, especially the "changing" part!
I hope more people post the poetry from their loved ones. Poetry takes a lot of thought so it is a good way for them to express their true feelings.

I think those poems were amazingly done. He's very good at that kind of stuff. Espically, Since In prison, you have absolutely nothing to do. You can just sit there and write. It's not all that great. But, Sometimes, It does get you through It all. Letters; phone calls; and visits are what makes their time go by faster, In jail/ prison.... My fiance Is In jail. &, I write him EVERDAY. & he calls me almost every day, I get down to see him, every Sunday I can. He also writes me poem.... Thank you for sharing the poems, they're great. As well as the writer. Keep up the good work.

a poem by my man

dimond in the rough
by wyatt
8-7-07
whatever u wish and whatever u dream
i will do my best to give u everthing
i can't promise u the world but i can promise u my heart
tell me is that a good enough start
i also can promise u i'll do everything i can
to make sure ur happy because i am yur man
i will never lie and i will never cheat
u are the only one that makes my heart beat
i chose u and u chose me
together we are one baby cant u see
i love u and there will never be another
u are my best friend and my lover
nothing in this world can ever compare
yur a dimond in the rough baby yur rare
yur one of a kind and yur all mine
from the moment we met till the end of time

Freedom and Love
by Wyatt 5-19-08

As each day goes by it brings me closer to home
so why does it feel like i'm becoming more alone
i feel like i'm drifting further and further away
my spirit is dying since i entered this cage
i long to be free to remember what its like
to feel like i'm loved one of the blessings of life
all the simple joys that freedom can bring
we take them for granted as we do with everthing
why can't we pay attention to all the things we do have
instead of losing them and then feeling sad
the things i would give to have my life back
to feel the warmth of a hug and arms wrapped around my neck
to know that i'm needed and know that i'm loved
if we only knew the good that that does
why cant we listen when other people try to help
i guess that is something we have to experience for ourselves
if u still have it i sugguest you hold on
cause when u lose it you dont know how long it'll be gone

You know my husband would tell me that everytime he would recieve a letter from me it would make his day. That it was what he looked for, and when he wouldn't he would be depressed. Reading these poems from david actually makes me realize that they do need the people on the outside, and that I am the one who makes him smile, and makes his day when i send him something. I will make my self write my husband everyday, even if it's to say how much i love him and miss him and that he will never be forgotten. David they are really good poems and inspirational for all of us that don't understand what incarcerated people go through everyday.

Great poems. I know its hard for my husband to be inside and I know I don't write as often as I should. Reading the "Prison Life" poem really opened my eyes. Thanks David.

All the poems are wondrful. But, Life in Prison was definately my favorite. Makes me feel that perhaps your loved one isn't the only one feeling that way. Looks like I have another letter to write.

Default Never Cry

I never cry anymore,
But sometimes when the wind's just right,
It blows a mist into my eye -
But I never cry, I never cry.

I don't ever get sad these days,
Just a bit choked up when a sad song plays
It gets hard to breathe and I don't know why,
But I never cry, I never cry.

I don't feel lonely or by myself at night,
But sometimes I wonder what it's like
To have someone miss you when you die,
But, I never cry, I never cry.

I have no memories of being hurt inside,
There's no one I'll trust for a long, long time
I guess some people would call me shy,
But I never cry, I never cry.

I don't have nightmares that keep me up in tears,
Though I haven't slept well every night for years -
I wake up screaming every time I try,
But I never cry, I never cry.

I don't think about freedom beyond where I stand,
Or what I would give for another chance,
To spread my wings and fly and fly,
so I never cry, I never cry.

No, I just don't cry no more
But sometimes when the wind's just right
It blows a mist into my eyes...
But, I never cry, I'll never cry.

here is a poem my fiance wrote me not long ago and I thought everybody could benefit from it hope u like it.

Loving a convict is not child's play
In fact some might say it's too high a price to pay
It's having to stand alone, facing your fears
And laying in bed at night with eyes full of tears
It's being frustrated, not knowing whether to agree or fuss
It's hundreds of miles and a lot of razor wire separating us
But baby, it's not much longer you'll have to wait
And before you know it they'll be opening the gate
It's so unfair this pain I inflict
So I just want to thank you baby
For loving this convict
by Dark Romeo

Tell David that the poems are great. They did make me think and made me miss my man even more...I never believed that absence makes the heart grow fonder until I found my soul mate....with him being 12 1/2 hrs away, we just hold on tighter to our love.....he is in FWFRC now, I haven't talked to him for a few days..I miss him sooo much.
