I waited

adrift in swelling
primordial oceans,
lifted by a crest,
drowning with the next

I waited

fading each day 
bit by bit
under sundering heat
of a dying Star

I waited

my every drop
now trapped by angry clouds,
tumbling in between
thunderous storms

I waited

till one day
by chance
you came along,
& precipitated
by your thrall


I fell for you...

    1. Hardly. A couple days back i was kicking myself for not realising that i had made a glaring grammatical error in a post. And unfortunately, out of politeness i guess, no one points out! πŸ˜‹ So no master here; just someone pretending to be a poet and learning to write better.

      1. The acceeptance of the occasional mistake is equally the master’s. And hell’s bells, who doesn’t make the odd grammatical mistake? You an angel, a word-wizard? A master is someone who continues to perfect the craft

      2. We all worry too much. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. As my oldest daughter once said, But Mum, if I don’t have something to worry about, I worry that I’m not worrying. πŸ™‚

      3. πŸ˜„ well really, to worry about not worrying is a legitimate concern!
        Anyway, certain things (like a pandemic and a world hurtling toward starvation crisis) can easily put our own little annoyances in a pile marked “hey, it’s not really a big deal!”. πŸ™‚


      4. Hey, those disaster theories were fun. EG, before things got really bad, I’d been the last to leave work, and couldn’t remember if I’d set the alarms. My current workplace was in a C13th priory, in a hidden, out of the way place. So, local streets at night aren’t always safe, so a friend came with me. And on the way I constructed such a bizarre scenario (the CEO was using the place for processing drugs. I’d open the door and he’d shoot me) and so it went. My friend said I needed a hit on the head. My answer was, Hey, I’m a writer!

      5. If I were in your friend’s place, I would have joined in and taken it up a notch. No bullet that soon. πŸ˜‚
        I love that attitude! It unconsciously helps you prepare for the worst case scenario. Although nowadays, i am more worried about people in my life with compromised immune system. If it were just me, it wouldn’t really matter.I don’t fit the demographic where this virus has left a high mortality rate. I wish it were that way. It’s easier to handle shit if it’s on you. But so much harder when it’s on people you care about and there’s not much you can do. So i can’t say that i am not worried about the worse now.

        But i really do admire your kind of attitude. πŸ™‚
