Still Waiting

Still Waiting short poem

Well we were over years ago
I just wish somebody would tell
my heart…you’ve moved on with
your life and I know our love will
never come again so why can’t I
learn to let you go and get on
with my life again…
instead of always just sitting home
alone by the phone hoping you’ll
call and dreaming that there’s still
a chance for you and me but I must
be crazy ‘cuz I know I’m only
dreaming, dreaming of an old, old
flame…wasting my time, hoping
you’ll change your mind but I’m
Still Waiting, waiting and waiting
in vain…
what’s wrong with me I know
you belong to someone else now
but if I could I would cast a spell
on you to make you love me again
but I must be crazy ‘cuz I know I’m
only dreaming, dreaming of an old,
old, flame…wasting my time, hoping
you’ll change your mind but I’m
Still Waiting, waiting, waiting in vain!

Lying in the dark, Waiting for the light. The sun never rose, And the days intertwine. The void that grows, Gets wider all the time, And I’m lying here, Waiting, waiting for you. You, You are my light, You are

Waiting short poem

Under the gaze of bald beliefs a warped dialect becomes a squeezer. Helplessly I watch the slashing of my wrists. Darkness burns, without light only intense heat. The expected miracle digs in around, in trenches of my knees. I become
