Stanley Coffin Poems

For patience is a virtue I have not mastered yet,
As yet again I continue to wait,
The mental torment of each tic toc of each second as I countdown,
Waiting eyes upon the wall as I watch the second hand fall,
...

In those solitary moments of silence my mind wanders back to another time,
A time when we were full of vision and drive and there was so much we wanted to do and that we felt so alive,
This was also a time when we were filled with passion and hope for the days ahead,
Here I sit contemplating what could have been instead,
...

A capricious love one foot in one foot out, you tear up my mind,
A delicious love neither here nor there but when you let me it's so beautiful and oh so very fine,
A luscious love with depths so deep and so divine but never mine,
A labricious love you drive me wild you light that fire that I can't control then you walk away,
...

How do I undo that thing I didn't do,
You waited patiently for me to pursue you and you also waited patiently for my words so they would reassure you,
Unfortunately my silence was very loud and it was all you heard for I spoke not a word but my silence it did not speak what I truly felt,
My actions were supposed to say all I needed to say so I said very little because words at times can become obsolete,
...

Those words are so beautiful but as beautiful as they are,
Are they as true,
Words I've heard before from you,
I cannot live and love just off words anymore,
...

While it's a long time ago I want to sincerely apologize to you for breaking your heart,
For I know it was my words that saw us part,
For one sentence was all it took,
If I could have my time again…….,
...

You close your eyes and open the door to the chaos that is your mind,
A reminder of your life and stresses that has unfortunately become your daily grind,
Under the shade of a bloodwood tree you ponder the feeling of being free,
Slowly you start to unwind the ringing in your ears a sign of the frenetic life you've left behind,
...

The Best Poem Of Stanley Coffin

Impatience

For patience is a virtue I have not mastered yet,
As yet again I continue to wait,
The mental torment of each tic toc of each second as I countdown,
Waiting eyes upon the wall as I watch the second hand fall,
For the falling of that second hand becomes like a sword upon my neck,
These moments with the in betweens emotionally ever so slowly tearing me apart and turning me into a wreck,
Tic toc tic toc I fill the impatient gaps in time with hurried thoughts in my mind then I try to occupy the moments and the in betweens with things I have no interest in,
Fidgeting as I go my hurried actions in stark contrast to my perception of time going so slow,
This excruciatingly slow torment is quickly becoming my lament as I wait for the moment when it will end and I can stop this feeling of every second landing like a hammer blow,
Sitting there at ease with the world feels like it was a lifetime ago,
Casting my eyes upon the clock upon the wall yet again,
I realise that a mere few minutes have passed by from my first glance and that my frustrations are just feeding this dance,
From my eyes on the wall watching the clock to the pounding sound of each tic toc tic toc to the fidgeting of my hands and feet to the hurried thoughts setting up the drum beat,
I orchestrate my own dance of impatience and frustration as it all goes around and around and it will only end when that final second hand makes its last sound,
Then it ends till the next time that I wait impatiently again listening to the tic toc on the wall driving me slowly insane
And while I've tried before from this behavior to refrain
Patience is not a virtue that I've managed to have mastered just yet.
