Honestly In Love

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, September 26, 2017


She watched him play
Toy with the girls’ emotions
And she remembered
All those days that she, too
Believed all the twisted lies

And there was an ache in her
Spilling out from her heart
Because she had so wanted
All those lies to be true
She'd loved him so deeply

She had assumed, erronously
That he loved her back
That things were different
With her and him than others
That she was special to him 

But as she watched him
Go through lover after lover
She realized they all thought
That they were special to him
But none of them were 

And as she watched him
She knew that he was losing
Because he didn't love
And he'd forgotten how it felt
To be honestly in love



New, Fresh Love

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, August 22, 2017

There was a rush in her heart
A flush upon her cheeks
A surge that shot through her
As his hand clasped hers

It was a new, fresh love
And it sent tingles across her skin
She hoped this would last
That this was only the beginning

Finding Peace

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, August 15, 2017


She didn’t find peace with crowds
Or in mind-numbing activities
Or sitting restfully by herself
She found it wrapped in his arms

She'd tried so hard, so many times
And it had all seemed futile
She'd looked so far for comfort
And it had eluded her again and again

And then he was suddenly there
And she didn't know it at first
But she couldn't win until she stopped
 Stopped trying and stopped fighting

She had an effervescent smile

Tonight was finally the night
She could feel it in the air

And see the love in his eyes

Don't Let Me Go

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, April 04, 2017

I can’t believe

That you’d sacrifice

I thought you’d leave

When your love

Was put to the test

You stayed

You are the best

You were willing

To give so much

For worthless me

My heart you did touch

Take That Demise

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, March 28, 2017

You take my inhibitions and fears away
Drown my protest with kisses
Change the darkness to the light of day
How can I bear to miss this

Take me away from here
Steal me away from life
So these things I don't see or hear
Pull me from this strife

Yes, that what I desire
To be stolen away by you
Stolen from all the hurt and fire
Able to get lost in all you do

Something Love

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Something strong
Something lasting
Quickens my blood
And carries my feet

Something sensational
Something desirable
Fills my dreams
And lightens my stride

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, March 07, 2017

Fear followed

Her train of thoughts

When she realized

Her moments

Were spent daydreaming

Only of him

He could drench her

With worry and dread

Or love and hope

With a solitary look

~Grace Marshall



Love Forever

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Spinning in a frenzy
I can barely see
You’re all I need
All I want to be

To be near
To be close
To be loved
To be held

Don’t leave me alone
Don’t ever be away
I need you forever
I need you to stay

To stay here
To stay whole
To stay safe
To stay strong

~Grace Marshall
Poem "Love Forever"



Something Love

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Something simple
Something tantalizing
Lingers on my mind
And dances on my lips

Something special
Something unique
Beats in my heart
And prances in my eyes

Something strong
Something lasting
Quickens my blood
And carries my feet

Something sensational
Something desirable
Fills my dreams
And lightens my stride

Something sweet
Something unforgettable
Reminds me to live
And gives me a song

~"Something Love"
