Why Do I Wait... For The Truth? - Poem by Anita Atina

Why do I wait so eagerly to hear from you?

When I know you measure everything you say

Why do I, who have lived so proudly alone

Now so long for word from you

I thrill at the thought of being in your arms

And yet this is not just a sensual pleasure to be

For my mind seeks new challenges to throw at you

To measure every deed that proves your heart is true

Thrust and parry we must, dueling mind and body

For in our souls we seek to find, the truth we seem to tarry!
