Help Me - Poem by John Doe

What the hell have you done
You can’t be serious
You failed
I failed at the last

For years I have waited
Patiently
For what have come
Every thing was perfect

My heart yearned for her for years
Years
Was impossible sometimes
Even had to avoid her for a year

Pain in my heart to love so much
And not to be able to have
I waited so long
Waiting nearly killed me

Then in one moment of what seemed perfect
I failed
I should have walked away
Should have known

Help me to understand
How can something so special
Suddenly be wrong
Yes it was the time

But that what was so special
I waited
For years
Did I undo my chance

So will this be the last
I cannot do this again
I cannot wait again
This is the last time

Help me
