    i'm thinking as i wander and i wonder as i think
and the words come to my mind "will i t be what i want it to be?"
my destiny's fulfilled or at least i hope it's true
because there's nothing i want more than to be right next to you
i imagine all the good things and completely ignore the bad
because i have no reason to believe that you will ever make me sad
my eyes smile and my heart jumps just to hear your name
but how can i be certain that the affect i have is the same?
you say you want to be with me, you say you want me then
but yet you're still with her and i can't see an end
the world just keeps on spinning as my memories go by in a blur
and every second that i wait i seem to want you more
i preoccupy myself with guys i kind of like
they're cute, popular, one wants me, but you'd win me without a fight
i guess that i when i kiss him i kinda pretend he's you
and that every time he touches me... oh i wish it were you
you're everything i want and probably so much more
but until this whole thing happens, we have to lose by score
the grass is always greener just on the other side
and the water's always deeper just after the tide
the stars are always brighter just after an eclipse
and every dream i have ends with you and me... our lips
this entire thing is crazy and i'm surprised i'm putting it into words
but nothing could express what exactly isn't heard
the silent touch of our fingers can say just so much more
than those simple words "i love you"; i want to tell you more
this poem may seem stupid and this story may seem false
but, oh my, when i see you, i when the race with my pulse
whatever happens you have to promise that we will always speak
because without you in my life i know there will be nothing... i'll be weak.



"Kirsten, i knew you were talented, but i had no idea you were such an incredible writer! I love your poems- and i'm not just saying that. " -- Ashley Giroux, Topeka, KS, USA.
"I read all of your poetry. You are more than just an writer. A talented, spirited, yearning artist Perhaps you should wear a miter. You have a gift of vocabulary That flows and shapes you so It gives the feelings meaning And gives your heart a glow. (wow, you have awesome poetry, keep on writing)" -- Karl, T-Town(woohoo!).
