I'Ve Been Longing In My Heart - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

Here I sit in shadowed light
Wondering why my mind is dim
Thoughts are going through night
On its wings of whimsy whim
Day has left with nothing done
Only notions of burned flames
Now my heart in beating is gone
With the days of loves names

I've been longing in my heart
Trying to be what I am not
Now I've closed that comport
With the flames love sought
Waiting games have dwindled down
With feelings that once were up
Streets are many in love's town
Every going there gets down stop

Here I sit in hours going flight
Feeling a stranger to sweet love
What are its ways wrong or right?
Drifts in its gray from far above
Feeling so lonely inside and out
Nowhere to go but being alone
Mind-sets that once where about
Forgotten inside like a heavy stone
