Love in the Background

Updated on May 29, 2013

Waiting

Waiting

Waiting

You circled

moon to my sun.

Waiting

Waiting

a familiar stranger that

left me undone

Waiting

Waiting

only ever

grazing my hand

Waiting

Waiting

what could possibly

be God's plan?

Waiting

Waiting

you said I would never

be alone

Waiting

Waiting

But you still

returned to your own home

Waiting

Waiting

You danced

with me wearing white

Waiting

Waiting

A heart broke that night

Waiting

Waiting

Vronsky drew me in

Waiting

Waiting

We can't simply

be a sin

Waiting

Waiting

Now we live apart

but same

Waiting

Waiting

To live again

on another plane.

      Thank you so very much! I am glad that you enjoyed this. I am just getting into using rhyme in my poems so I am kind of a work in progress, but aren't we all?

      I am glad you think so xstatic! And I chuckle that anyone finds the words that fall together when I write "fascinating" but I am overjoyed that you do!

      Really interesting form and that "waiting, waiting" echoes throughout. The Tolstoy reference with "Vronsky" is a fascinating point in the poem.

      Theater girl,

      Quick? I felt guilty how long it took me to get here :D

      Don't be unsure of anything, don't second guess, just run with it... that's where the honest beauty is!
