The Waiting Game

The Waiting Game 


She waited for you 
She watched the clock 
Slowly ticking, tick, tock 
She held hope in her heart 
This was her new start, 
The man of her dreams 
Or so you seemed 
She waited for you 
She thought one 
might become two 
Gin was her solace 
Alone in the darkness 
She waited for you 
Tear stained face 
At the thought of your embrace 
She had her dreams 
Of her ideal scene 
Her and you 
Just you two 
She waited !

  10. We’ve all been there! Unless he’d been run over by a bus he’d better have a very good excuse - otherwise he’s just another selfish ‘person’. Well done for conjuring this feeling up.

  17. A well written poem Kez! It sounds like your character has been hurt in the past, and is hoping that this guy will be her true soulmate and faithful. But your sad and moving words sounds like she may have picked a bad one, once again, who is leaving her in her dismal solitude. Hence the gin bottle for comfort. I think you told the story extremely well, and you can empathize with the character putting all her hopes into a dream of the perfect relationship, and how the reader wishes that she won't be left alone for too long. I think any guy who would leave a beautiful lady waiting, like the one in this picture, cannot be a real man at all. Let's hope she picks right, next time, and a happy ending ensures. Perhaps, an idea for a sequel poem! : ) Much Love Paul OXOXOXOXOXO
