Living In The Gutter But Looking At The Stars

Poem by Kelly Lynn

Loving you.
Buried six feet under,
I could have only blamed myself.
Unwillingly waiting for the day
that you leave me,
still thinking it will happen.
But still imagining a future, the future.
I waited a lifetime and wasted years
with worrying of being alone.
I worry of you leaving me.
Its like a person can't ever be happy.
Believing and understanding isn't always easy.
Sometimes I still feel like I'm living in
the gutter and wishing on stars.
Sometimes feelings are hard to believe.

    This one is unique. I like it! ! ! It seems like one of those 'damned if you do...damned if you don't' kind of poems! Nicely stated!
