I sit alone in the darkness
Waiting for him to come back to me.
Can he hear my cries?...
Tired of Waiting Poems
One famous historical book says, "expectation postponed is making the heart sick". Those wise words have proven true time and again for many. Many people wait their whole lives for things that are difficult to come across, like true love or exceptional secular opportunities. Unfortunately, some things, like finding a soul mate, do not necessarily happen when one would like. Often, the wait can become frustrating, causing sadness, anger and other negative feelings. One way to combat such feelings is to read the poetry of others who have experienced similar emotions.
