Poet Lady Katz (new forum post): Waiting

Poetry Talk

New post from Riya Jaiswal


I was waiting for you

in the dark,

hoping for that

presence of your light.

To feel your warmth

and those dazzling eyes:

to look in its depth

depth of beauty that—

sparkled my heart

and pumped its glow

into my veins.


you never came

as I stood there

drenched in rain,

which turned into a graffiti

I didn't know.

“Lover left Loner”

was what it called

and I still wander

round the graffiti

but this time not

in an earthly body

as it's already 101 years

when I started being called,

“A Scary Ghost” with

an untold story

lost long ago;

crippled in the hands of death

waiting for you,

waiting for YOU!
