Wasted Time - Poem by Kevin Carney

Lord knows, I have tried…
It was in the name of love…
Out of desperation…
Out of fear…
It was all I could do.
I tried to pull you to safety.
Fighting against all that doubted you.
Love and faith.
My weapons in hand.
The days counted on.
Never could I give in…
Hope, I thought would end.
Leaving me to feel the pain of failure…
The hurt never to end from my heart.
Leaving me in a void…
Simply I can’t explain.
Why did I put myself through all this?
Never had I ever been so challenged.
And for what?
There will be no goodbyes…
Will there be regret?
Will there be an empty feeling in my gut?
These are the questions…
That I will never have the answers…
Only that in the back of my head.
That I have wasted my time…
