As I Lay Waiting Poem by Inday Prising

As I Lay Waiting

Ignorance is once again upon me
Embracing me into this impasse
Dissipated clouds witness my reverie
As I take this feeling to a new degree

Dried yellow leaves of the old oak keeps falling
Dreary breezes of the night remains burning
Not a star above the sky is twinkling
But the moon above keeps brightly shining

I close my eyes as I lay here waiting
The sojourn cold leaves my hands shivering
Then renders my limping body quivering
Etherized, laying, as if I am dying

Exhausted with all this pointless running
Can’t seem to stop desperately dreaming
I see myself continuously falling
As everything around me is fading

I hear only deafening silence screaming
Within my ears it is heartlessly asking
“…why can you not stop crying,
…for someone who is not even trying”

As I take this feeling to a new degree
Dissipated clouds witness my reverie
It’s embracing me into this impasse
For ignorance is once again upon me

'Dissipated clouds witness my reverie' that line hooked me...very nice, a sense of hopelessness and events out of your control in this one...i like the continuous use of action words. great stuff, check out mine if u get a chance
