He Left Me Waiting - Poem by Lora Colon

He left me waiting, staring at the stars,
Believing he was one of a kind;
He left me waiting, staring at the sun,
Now I know why love is blind

And the sun and the stars looked down on me
And asked 'What are you waiting for? '
I answered like this: 'I wait for my love,
But I fear he's my love no more'

He left me waiting, alone and cold,
Cold as the snow in December;
He left me waiting, memories intact,
Suffering, while I remembered

He left me waiting, but I wait no more,
I cut the ties, freed myself from the tether;
And the cold and loneliness felt pity for me,
They took me home... now we all live together

    I'm so glad that poems flow out of you
    Like snow finds its way to the sea
    If you ever should reach your potential,
    There'd be no room for poets like me.... (Report) Reply

    Love the humour as usual Lora even though it may be bittersweet?
    We've all been there though.My late Mother used to say to me, don't worry there's plenty more Fish in the Sea.
