My first poem. :]
**This is NOT a synopsis of my life. This is simply a compiled, random thought.**

As I sit here by the phone,

waiting for you to call,

I begin to doubt myself.

Are you worth it at all?


You said

after the fight,

“Let’s wait until the time is right.”


When will that be?

So many others have made you happy,

As far as I can see


I’ve been ready.

Ready for you

You never acknowledge,

No matter what I do


You’ve given me nothing but despair,

Hopelessness and pain.

I want to be with you again,

But will I have anything to gain?


Are you worth the sacrifice?

Or am I just being cynical?

Will paranoia suffice?

Or should I be critical?


I thought you loved me

But it’s all done.

While you try to put me on hold,

I just say,

“It’s been fun.”


As I hang up,

I knew it wouldn’t fit

I should have realized

You just weren’t worth it.

Please write more, because you're very good at writing mellow, emotional, smooth poems... and probably everything else for that matter. Bravo!
