The Wanting

The Wanting

by Joshua on November 21, 2011

An original poem by Nora Garriga.

I forever wonder
Blue
Do you think of me?
As I think of you?
It’s so hard to share a glance
With you
Blue
I do not want to face these feeling
There is too much truth

But here I am
Red
At the opposite end of the spectrum
Waiting
Waiting
When will I be good enough?
My fists pound until they bleed
Red
Forever red!

Pain not provoked
By a sharp knife
Or a burning ember
Nor the slap of a hand across my face
But emotion
Of the worse kind
The wanting…

I steal glimpses
Of blue
The wanted hue
In the sunset on my horizon
Not green with envy
Red
With rage
I cannot accept
It is not meant to be

I day dream
Of being together
The blue wanting me
Touching
Swirling
Combining
To purple
The two
Become one

But that day will not come
