Wanting, Wishing, Waiting

Updated on July 13, 2011

I condemn me for

The things I said before

Past regret won’t subside

Questions tear me up inside

Left to struggle and to tread

In deep waters inside my head

Grasping strings left unbroken

Fearing words left unspoken

Subsiding now my unearthed secret

Wishing I could somehow keep it

Locked away from all to see

Everyone including me

Wanting more but getting less

Knowing now that I digress

Two steps forward, three steps back

Asking what it is I lack

Where to go and where to turn

Questions that begin to burn

Deep inside my tortured mind

Left some where far behind

Where have I gone, what have I done

Answers now, there still are none

Yet here I sit debating

Wanting, wishing, waiting

      Thank you Willstarr! Sorry I did not realize you left me a comment until now

      And thank you Rosemay, that's very insightful. I try not to regret things I've said and done in life as well because I know that in the long run it will bring me down the path I'm meant to follow. Sometimes I lose sight of that though.

      Beautifully written. Over my long years I have learned to 'Not' regret what I have done or I have said. For all that I've done and all that I've said have brought me to here and now, and I am happy with this present time.
