Why?

by Poetic Ninja aka Papachopchop   Oct 12, 2011


Laying beneath a blanket of stars,
Gazing curiously into the night,
The full moon, my only company,
As I am contemplating, why?

Why do I have such problems,
With the love I have to share?
Am I the one doing something wrong,
Or is this not my cross to bare?

I know I don't demand too much,
For I make it a simple request,
I have them promise to me this,
And come what may the rest,

"You are free to leave me,
Just don't deceive me,
Be whatever it may,
In each and every way,"

But every time I ask this,
They simply agree,
I guess I am a fool,
For trusting their words to me,

My broken heart is mending,
There is still much to do,
But these lonely nights are killing me,
Isn't there something you can do?

Laying there in the grass,
I waited for my reply,
You see it never came,
Because I still sit and wonder, why?

    • Thank you for your comment on my poem named "why?" but you commented the same thing 7 times... computer burp? :D Just curious, are things any better on your end now? Have you gotten a reply at all yet? just thought I'd reach out, but if you feel weird talking then I'm cool just going back into the nothing of cyberspace. BTW, I hardly log into this place and my e-mail is papachopchop@gmail.com, I check it almost daily. Gotta run, peace out.

    So lovely...^o^

  • Since I wrote this poem, I actually have gotten a response.... I was told that once I have made peace with being alone and accept that I will be fine either way. I will be taken care of.... Sounds like an answer the God would give since we are here for his amusement. :P
