Poet Lady Katz (new forum post): Waiting

Poetry Talk

New post from Riya Jaiswal


I was waiting for you

from dusk till dawn 

my skin longing for the 

warmth of your light

the intimacy of your 

eyes upon me

to emmerse in its depth

of beauty which 

sparkled my heart

and pumped its glow

into my veins




you never returned 

as I stood there

drenched in rain

cherry blossoms, dust,

maples and snow flakes

patience took pity

turned me into

a graffiti captioned 

'lover turned loner'




still I wander

round my graffiti

it's 101 years

since I started being called

a lowkey ghost with 

an untold story

lost long ago

crippled in the hands 

of reaper while

waiting for you.
