The wait

Through the biggest waves,

Through the hottest of fires,

Through the deepest caves,

Amidst all the love I acquire.


There’s still something missing,

A void nobody else can replace,

A place specifically meant for you,

A place I tried to fill with someone new.


I’ve realized now this effort is futile,

You’re better than everyone else by a mile.

All I want everyday is to see you smile,

It sucks that I haven’t seen you in a long while.


But I’ll try my best to be patient and wait,

Maybe use flowers and some chocolates as bait,

Always look for you through my building’s gate,

Hopefully someday I’ll show you off to my mates.

  1. Hi there 🙂🙂

    I notice you have many followers and a seemingly successful blog.

    How do you do it? How did you get so much interest?

    I’m really passionate about writing and I want more people to read my ideas 🎨

    Thank you so much 🤠

      1. Thank you 🙂

        Do you have lots of friends on your socials? I’ve posted my stuff a lot but haven’t gotten much of a response I guess.

        Do you have any tips about increasing my effectiveness of spreading my stuff on socials?

        Thanks so much for your prompt reply 😁

        P.s what’s your socials? I’d love to follow you, I’m very into health and fitness too.

        P.P.s your writing is great; I want to get better at your style of poetry.


  2. I admire your poetic sentiment but there are quite a few structural issues here, especially with the awkward rhyme. It’s also quite emotionally observational, and as such misses any punch.

    1. You are entitled to your opinion of course but from what I know: Poets do not or are not obligated to obey or follow any rules in writing. E.E.Cummings is one example of that.
      I suggest reading Ted Kooser’s Poetry home repair manual

  3. This passes. “Heartily know, when half-gods go, the gods arrive.” Ralph Waldo Emerson. Just a thought with something that always helped me keep perspective.

  4. The wait can seem so long at times it’s unreal!
    But in the end, if it’s all worth it then great..
    And if not…well I guess it’s then up to us to somehow make it worth it 🙂
    Which is so hard to achieve..but essential for our own good…:(
