After All This Time

After All This Time

A Chapter by Dr YumnaKay

All these years when I could have had you 
I ignored the temptations 
Always wanting more 

All these years when you could have been the one 
I pushed you farther away 
Than you already were 

All these years when I knew you loved me 
I searched for someone new 
Someone better to come 

All these years watching your tears wash away 
I looked away and pretended to never know the reason of them 

All these years when I have been enclosed in a shell 
Of my falsified ego and dignity 
You are still here waiting 
For me to open and accept the reality 

So 

After all these years of 
Keeping you waiting 
I finally come to you 
I know you won't push me away 
Like I did with you...

Beautiful poem on the nature of a lover. When we love some one and he/she does not respond, we face such situation. while we should respect all those who love us. In my opinion love does not mean to be together. Love is also a kind of respect yourself. I love your thought because I have faced such situation. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your kind words on this piece! I'm glad you liked it ☺
WOW! This is a very powerful message! I've done this most of my life & you captured how it feels to be a rolling stone, pushing away a perfectly awesome beloved, still curious about what's around the next bend. I love the way you use "All these years" followed by something a little different each time. This refrain gives your message a haunting quality.
