I was waiting for someone

I was waiting for someone

A Poem by asmae

i was waiting for someone
that is going to complete me
i was waiting for someone
that is going to make me feel free
and as i was sitting on the corner of my street
i was hoping for someone to meet
the lonliness was killing me
and i don't like talking to strangers
but i'm a stranger to myself anyway
i'm a stranger and i can't find my way
trapped in a body
that i don't even know

i was waiting for someone
and my life was passing me by
i was waiting for someone
feeling like i'm gonna cry
i suck it up
and i go home
i stand up
i look at my reflexion in a mirror in my room

now i can remember who i am
after being in a coma
for so long
that i forgot my own features
i forgot my own self

perhaps i should love me so fiercely
and i should love me, endlessly
i kept staring in the mirror
just to help me see myself clearer
and that's the closest i've ever been

i was waiting for someone
because i wanted to love
but
what about me?
what is love anyway?
if i can't give it to me

i was waiting for someone
that i forgot to see
how love was so close to me
everything was within
all that i was craving
not a hostile me
not a hostile life
just a little love
that i owed to myself
just a celebration
a beautiful sensation

then i realize...
maybe love
isn't always meant to be...
for other people?

Love happens and it may not...it's always not what we expect...but you can create that environment. Love can be the most addictive and destructive drug we know. :)

I liked and I understood the poem.
"then i realize...
maybe love
isn't always meant to be...
for other people?"
The above is sort of true. I believe in the old ancient poet's words. "Love find you. You do not find love." And. "Don't rush love. Love comes when she wants." A powerful poem that made the reader think.

Very old wisdom. Maybe a Donne quote.
Deep...you think deeply in your vulnerability...but that makes for great writing...lovely write. :)

ow thank you so much you beautiful creature x
I can right now relate to it. Reading your poem was a comfort to me. Sometimes we feel really fed up because of waiting and that love starts to fade away.
