Broken Yet Still I Wait: What Can Keep Working

Night begins to fall upon me
Night begins to fall upon me

Night begins to fall upon me

With no one around to hear my cries

Eyes blood shot from harsh words spoken

A weary soul lacking peace

Broken yet still I wait

Thoughts fade

Memories locked away

Still find myself weeping your name, broken yet still I wait.
Still find myself weeping your name, broken yet still I wait.

Hurt beats harder within my heart

With every passing minute

You never come

Broken yet still I wait

Quick look the other way

She's drowning in your absence

I can't catch your life saver

You would have to throw it first

Broken yet still I wait

Busted pride

Black eye

Cover that hurt with make up

Still finding myself weeping your name

Broken yet still I wait

Lay down restless bones

Aching from the night before

Your skeletons haunt me

See your face in my dreams

Broken yet still I wait

Man on the moon

Cries from love gone wrong

Comforts the lonely

Heals their scars

Broken yet still I wait

Sunlight begins to fall upon me

With no one around to hear my cries

Eyes blood shot from harsh words remembered

A weary soul lacking peace

You never came

You never came for me

Broken yet still I wait

The Worn Out Woman: When Life is Full and Your Spirit is Empty
The Worn Out Woman: When Life is Full and Your Spirit is Empty

A book that I find myself reading over and over. The title says it all, and you know that you're a "worn out woman," when just seeing a title like that gives you comfort.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the comments. I'm honestly overwhelmed by them. I guess sometimes we don't realize that there are other people that understand what we are feeling, even when the words don't seem to come out quite right.

I hope each of your are blessed, and again I thank you for taking the time to read, as well as comment.

Welcome Loco Life! Great start with a great [weary] poem. The best poems are those that are written from personal emotions and experience, for better or for worse. I'm saddened by your plight, but encouraged you've found an outlet to turn something ugly into something beautiful and important.

Such a sad, sad poem 'I can't catch your lifesaver, you would have to throw it first'. Waiting, waiting always living in hope that evil can change, it doesn't and never will and such is the dilemma of those abused by someone they love. An amazing poem that speaks of the reality of this situation - Broken, Yet Still I Wait.

Welcome to Hubpages, I look forward to reading more of your work.
