Wake Up

It is very hard for me

to wait

to be patient

while you dance with play toys

and I watch from the distance.

There were no rules

there were no plans

there were no expectations

yet

I cannot lie

I have fallen head over heels

dying a little inside

each time you ignore me.

I have taken a stand

I have backed off

backed up

turned off my heart

turned off my head

I will remain on the outskirts

until you finally wake up.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

  1. The waiting is such a nagging ache. Just because we are patient doesn’t mean we don’t experience the longing. A timely and appreciated poem for me…
