If Fate Was Kind

I cannot live without you

Nor do I want to try.

Can you feel me waiting

For our souls to meet?

So many things I need to tell you,

And other things I wish you knew.

How I wish I had the courage

To get them off my chest.

If I could be where you are,

And fate was kind to me,

Maybe you would see me

For who I am inside.

    Welcome to MPS, Xander. Well written, engaging. Putting yourself out there, making the first move....it is scary. But hey, all you have to do is show that person this poem!

    Very good words Xander, one day that person will see you and that love will abound.

    Welcome to MPS.

    baby steps: yielding great rewards,
    beauty of 'Poetry' is that you can disguise a lifetime's worth of laments in your depiction of ice cream and cake, if you so choose
    dive-in and let your pen guide your path to that relief, accumulated by voicing once hidden truth's...
    take your time, read the masters and write
    till your pen glides with that 'ease of mind'
    you've mined: from within...
    thanks for sharing, enjoy the journey!
    (please forgive me if you consider yourself an experienced wordsmith and my words read condescending or rude,
    I do not mean to judge or demean, merely trying to encourage, as best as I can, nothing more: but also, nothing less)
