A touch of bad '90s teenage angst poetry

All the rage

The movement people call “emo” today slightly evolved from “grunge” about a decade and a half ago. Regardless, I was part of this “grunge” culture and wore the flannel shirts, ripped jeans, had the messy, dishelved long hair, and felt the torture of my mere existence. (There was a hint of sarcasm in that last phrase.) I roll my eyes at how much of a drama queen I was back then (10 times more so!) but my emotions as a teen were very painful and very real. Since I can’t provide a coherent, well-thought out post today, I decided to peel back a little bit of my vulnerability and share a bit of “angsty” poetry written on June 1, 1999. If you can get past the crappiness of it, you can get the sense I was feeling rather lonely.

Even though love never knocked on my doorstep
I looked out the window, waiting

Even though love never called me,
I sat there, anticipating

Even though love was never a guest in my home,
I sat there

Waiting for love,
Waiting alone.

  1. Wow!
    I was just making an analogy between Eddie and Jim Morrison.
    I don’t know when it will be ready.
    I’ve found two videos where both asked the lights to be turned off in almost the same way.
    Eddie, thanks the Lord, is a balanced man and have a child to raise.

  2. oh my…that looks just like the poetry I wrote in highschool…and it’s really not all that crappy…
    I had a huge notebook fulled with the “crap,” but I loved it sooo much and it somehow got lost and it makes me so sad…
    we know things those little teenagers in us…we do.
