On the Backside of Hello

Standing quivering
Vulnerable and still raw
Needing acceptance
Craving a glance….from you
Aching for your hello

Feeling inadequate
Fidgeting hands clamped
Eyes downward
Craving a look….from you
Longing for your hello

Heart sprinting
Pulse tap dancing
Feeling dizzy
Craving a smile…from you
Thirsting for your hello

Feeling dejected
Fearing rejection
Ducking out of sight
Seeing no smile…from you
Hiding from your hello

    Wonderfully written and although free verse it has form in your repetition of the 7 syllable 4th line and fits so well with that need for acceptance we feel on so many level through our lives especially about love.

    Our own rejection in our own reflection can keep us well at bay. With no where left to turn for help, seems no one cares to say. With shallow breaths, we stay alive. Hoping that one day they'll soon arrive. Hello Debra. :)
