Another Poetry Thursday, hurray! Sorry this is going up a bit later than it normally would. I’ve been very tired the past few days, and never got around to scheduling it like I normally would. Lesson learned: I need more coffee. Well, maybe that’s not necessarily the right lesson, but it works. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the poems this week – let me know! Oh, and remember, another review will be going up this Sunday – hurray!
For the day to pass, I wait
patiently to see your face.
Hoping – wishing – to test fate,
helplessly dreaming for you embrace.
Feeling things I can’t explain –
butterflies within my chest
for a face without a name;
I cannot think, I cannot rest.
I see something within those eyes,
something deep within your smile:
a spark that makes me want to fly,
to linger blissfully for a while.
Red Light/Green Light
Motionless in the street,
unable to move my feet.
Pedestrians pass me by,
I cannot follow, will not try –
I am trapped on the concrete.
Headlights dance across my face,
the red light waits, I stand in place;
knowing that to come is green
and with it, moving metal machines,
soon to take me in their embrace.
Time ticks on, and it begins to rain,
slowly washing away the stains.
Arms stretched out to the sky,
to the world I say my last goodbye.
Green light – the end, there is no pain.
