She Waits (poem)

Updated on February 24, 2013

She waits for him mid sands he cannot see

His mind and heart are oh so far away

The world he knows has lead them all astray

How can her truth compete with fantasy


She waits with tears so long were put aside

The flowers in his garden need no rain

So far removed from pleasure and all pain

How much has doubt and fear force him to hide


She waits amid the silence of a song

A memory so long he has forgot

The life he leads no longer has a plot

How can he wonder when his way went wrong


But deep at nights when everything abates

And darkness brings new meaning what is real

His soul is kissed by something it does feel

Where now touches forever there she waits

      I noticed your interesting choice of poetry style with the first and last lines rhyming, and the second and third lines rhyming. I tried to find the name for it, but couldn't. I often play with rhyming lines but I am not good on the names of the different styles. I'm sure I accidentally am using some particular type of poetry, but I'm clueless! Beautiful poem, by the way. I was distracting myself on the style too much. My own fault!

      Mhatter99. .sometimes love comes along and stays..and sometimes love goes awry and strays.. but regardless the "wait and see attitude" it's not a thing we can elude...

      A lovely poetic reverie and if you keep writing in this dreamy style

      Sir Martin , you will have a long line of Hub ladies and beyond 'waiting' for you to write another one.
