Waiting.

A poem that I wrote many years ago that I just came across..

Timeless and true
Why must i always wait?
Forever longing for you
Why must we always part from a period so short?
I long to hold you. To touch you. To feel that you are real.


Fate works in mysterious ways
So frustrating and true
I wake up reaching out for you
Always finding that you are gone
And you will always be

I long to embrace your kisses
And to touch your real face; the patterns of your skin
Each cut and each scrape
So beautiful but in time
I know this will soon be mine
You will soon be mine
For a short second, minute or day
You will be mine.

I ask that fate will freeze us in place in the most perfect of perfect time

I will always be waiting for you
Forever longing
Forever waiting for you

Each second is killing me
Making the next more painful
Fate: puzzling, frustrating, agonizing and true.

I will always be
Forever longing
Forever waiting
Anticipating
Dissipating
Withering and falling apart
When wishing, hoping and dreaming are teasing and ripping at my heart.

I will always be waiting for you
Forever longing
Forever waiting
Waiting and waiting until fate makes us too late.

I am waiting for here and now
Forever waiting.
Forever longing
For here and now .

Oh wow, heartache is a tough subject. But it is amazing how painful experience can make the ink flow in the pen of a writer. There is something in those experiences we all go through, that somehow give us a greater voice. We seem to express more of everything. Life is strange.

If love didn't hurt, then it would be pretty worthless, and not worth experiencing! Heartache is part of love, and so is loss. Sorry if that sounds harsh. But if I counted all the times I tripped on Love's great banana skin... LOL!

It's worth every bruise and every tear! Feel the fear and do it anyway, that's my motto! Cheers! That is me, I am now a fan!
