How Can I


How can I define my feelings for another?

After such utter darkness around me

When the storms of life and falling tears

Cannot be compared to

The sinking feelings deep down inside

Leaning against my car today

Peering ahead through nothing

I see nothing else but your face in front of me

Asking the question

Will our love stand the test of time?

A long period of stagnation followed

With a unnatural tightness in my chest

I stood there wondering…

What tomorrow might bring

I had the urge to text you


I rested my head backwards against the car…

Waiting for a answer

Facing the warm sun

I closed my eyes

A nerve in my eyelid began to twitch

Instantly…  I could do nothing about it

A tear popped up

Oh how can I define my feelings?

My love

excellent tinka
longing poetry is your specialty

You also place the readers, as recipients.
