"Waiting in Vain"


Sometimes I walk the streets of my neighborhood listening to love songs.

The cool night air and star bright sky creates the perfect environment for romance.

Lovers caught in a chemical bind, and glued together speaking lip locked languages.

And though I have yet to speak it fluently, I feel its words on the tip of my tongue.

Strolling through the dark, I oftentimes see the glow of a candlelit couple conversing.

Their happiness makes it seem as if their spirits shine on levels that match the sun.

I am confident that if there were no streetlights, they alone would illuminate the block.

Jealous could not describe my current state, envious of the connection that is a soul mate.

I believe myself capable of imagining the bliss of true love, but who could be the judge?

So accompanied by myself, distracted from reality through my own fantasies I walk.

Only the lonely, could know the way that I feel tonight Roy. I envy you also.

And as I finish my march under the bluest breeze Bob Marley speaks to me.

I don't want to wait in vain for love, but for now it looks as if I don't have a choice.

So I do, I listen to love songs and dream of happiness. I wait for her, anxiously.
