A Poem by Charlene Hughes

A lifetime I have waited, they said you didn’t exist

Holding tight to dreams of love, not ready to give in.


Sadly as I’m waiting, watching dreams slip away

My hopes of finding true love have brought tears to my face


I have tamed my savage emotions, but my passion rages still

I would find the perfect man, my heart he would heal.


The solitude of loneness still washes through my soul

I am not afraid of being alone, I’ve learned well from before


My heart is very wise now. It learned to heal its wounds

This may seem so heartbreaking, to someone that is new


I just knew there had to be, your love so strong and true

So I find myself incurable, trying to find someone like you.

I dabble a bit with poetry. I find that I write more poetry when I am feeling my lowest. That hasn't been for a while now but I would like to share some of what I have written. I have written on wha.. more..
