The Poetry Corner featuring CP Bialois

Hello everyone! Have no fear, I don’t intend to use this space for myself beyond this one time. This is just something I wanted to share with you all. When it comes to poetry, I’m all thumbs. I love reading and listening to it, but I really suck at writing it. lol

About this Poem: For those that may not know, our dog died September 17- two days before the two year anniversary of my dad’s passing- so it was an emotional time. Both of them influenced my life in so many ways.

When growing up, my parents taught he to be be honest and treat everyone fairly, but my dad took it a step further by teaching me to be independent and think for myself.

Our dog, Sootie, was nothing but pure love. She woke us in the morning with kisses. When we came home she greeted us at the door with a toy in her mouth, squeaking it while playfully growling and wagging her tail. When one of the cats was sick (even the one that tormented her), Sootie was the first one there whimpering and wagging her tail trying to help.

Both of them are missed, but they’ll never be forgotten.

Thanks for sitting through my rambling. 🙂 This poem is for anyone that’s lost a loved one. Hope you like it.

Missing You by CP Bialois

Every morning I wake,

I expect to find you sleeping.

Yet, when I look to give you a shake,

Memories of you leaving bring back my weeping.

Every night I remember you leaving,

And wish I could change history.

My heart breaks and my chest starts heaving,

Only to begin the cycle again, hoping for a different destiny.


About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

    When poems come from the heart, there’s no way they can suck. I lost my big guy Dutch about 15 years ago and I still miss him. 175lbs of half-lab, half-husky insanity. Best dog I have ever had the honor of being friends with.
