I'm Waiting

This can't go on
'I'm waiting'
All hope is dead and gone
'I'm waiting'
I don't love one like you
'I'm still waiting'
Even your sweetest words won't do
'I'm waiting'
My life is mine alone
'I'm waiting'
Our future is unknown
'I'm waiting'
Leave me
'I'm waiting'
Why can you not see?
'I'm waiting'
Stop. This isn't necessary.
'I'm waiting'
I'll manage, you needn't worry.
'I'm waiting'
This is all my fault
'I'm waiting'
Our lives won't come to a halt
'I'm waiting'
I need to set this right
'I'm waiting'
So let's end the fight
'I'm waiting'
It's a big world out there
'I'm waiting'
You'll find many with whom to share
'I'm waiting'
I can't see you hurt like this
'I'm waiting'
It isn't entirely my wish
'I'm waiting'
It'll be best to move on
'I'm waiting'
I can't see right from wrong
'I'm waiting'
In the long run you'll be free
'I'm waiting'
You'll stop missing me
'I'm waiting'
But I'll miss you always
'I'm waiting anyway'
If that be the case,
Give up your silly chase.
'I can't. My hands are bound.
Someday you'll come around.
No matter what you do
I'll still be there for you
I can't change now, You've said enough.'
I'm sorry. I know it'll be tough,
Won't you listen to me one last time?
'No. I'm waiting, it'll be fine.
True forever to you'
If that be true, I'll be waiting too.

    I'm waiting too.
    I'm done with the fear of losing you,
    done with the secret of us, the TWO,
    There will never be an end to us,
    Because without u i am nothing but dust,
    I AM waiting and your waiting is a must.
    Dont talk about us getting over,
    It sinks me down, lower and lower,
    I can never find a person like MY plutonian,
    ITS YOU OR NO ONE..... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
