A Single Gals' Lament (1508 hits)

[SUN's (poem)] Wait.

I didn't take the bait.

I evaluated it and I waited to see if it would

turn to me and be

what I wanted it to be


I devoured it wholly

in my mind


(and rightly so),

its been a long time

I can hardly wait

Some say its Fate

I say its Waste

of time

Love sublime lulls my memory and as I fall asleep

I dream

I Wait

I can just taste the nectar of love's sweetness

I want it

I am waiting



Aint I a Good one?

My Queendom exists

Exists in the vortex of time

The bells will chime and I will get mine

Wings, like a memory, will come back to me. I am not waiting in vain.

I will not go insane.


You see this world? You see this ugliness? You see this beauty. Its all here and we shall...


Catch a butterfly in a jelly jar just one time and wait

It must escape to breathe

They die like we



I can race


but there is no one there.

Sometimes we compete against ourselves.

That voice tells us negative things.

It says,

“Time is fleeting.”

but Your Hour is coming soon; ignore the evil voices

Your best choice is...


Don't take the bait and end up on a plate

Even in the bible it says, don't haste.

I debate, and I adore, and I create, but never Hate when I see couples smiling together.

I am alone-Whatever

I am Waiting

I am waiting

I am


has Blessed

my soul.

"Sister Moon"

Sister moon will be my guide
In your blue blue shadows I would hide
All good people asleep tonight
I'm all by myself in your silver light
I would gaze at your face the whole night through
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

Lying in a mother's arms
The primal root of a woman's charms
I'm a stranger to the sun
My eyes are too weak
How cold is a heart
When it's warmth that he seeks?
You watch every night, you don't care what I do
I'd go out of my mind, but for you
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun
My hunger for her explains everything I've done
To howl at the moon the whole night through
And they really don't care if I do
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

Amazing Sun Smith...a single gals lament. It took me a moment, but I got it. It resignated with me so, that I was thinking about the things I did not rush into. all because I waited. continue on, it was moving. The other poem by Steve is different. I think of consume by love and lust.
