Another duet! Thank you to Hasty for believing in my poetic abilities.


I stand patient in the corner
Waiting for you to notice
The smile I have warmed up
In hopes it meets your eyes

I watch you circulate, converse, amuse,
Elicit laughs and friendly touches
Others see your open, entertaining self
But my eyes see beyond, below

Hungry for the attention I seek
But controlled in my eagerness
I listen to the greetings, the dialect
The grace with which you speak

I deny my growing jealousy
For the smiles you give freely
For the words you share and exchange
While I wait silently, expectantly

Each moment passes before my eyes
Eternity witnessing and resurrecting
Heartaches lost forever, stuck
Hiding in the ghostly realm which I reside

I will not succumb to sadness
I will not extinguish my desire
I will keep my smile shining for you
I will stand patient in the corner

  1. I liked this.

    Nice to see you cheering each other on in your writing efforts. Thanks for talking her into joining your merry band. We are really out numbered now, TRG.
