Life is to short So many wasted moments

Life is to short !
So many wasted moments !

In our lives, moments we let slip by – unfulfilled
life’s experiences, life’s pleasures, passions spilled
into a void, that black hole abyss,
where all that could be, we tend to miss.

Not even a passionate kiss 
to give meaning, to show – for all is killed –
me, for history, past, beliefs, experiences,
lack of desire, no real need, no ardor for me
is all that comes my way – this is all I see.

From you , no desire, not even a wish for more 
from those walls, the other side of your locked door. 
I question ?, I wonder ?, - for me, what will be in store ?
In the New Year, alone ?, without you upon life’s shore.

    How true “ Happiness is having someone to share life with. ”, unfortunately, Anne Lise, a lot of us do not have that in our lives, and as you have read in my stuff, I have had some moments and a moment of something is better then a life time of nothing, so believe me “ Life is short, ” and I do my best to “ make something out of it ” . OXOXOXOXXXXX ( B. J. “A” 2 ) Bill .

    Thank you my Dear, for thinking so “ A very good poem! ” and for the “ Have a nice Sunday afternoon. – oxox ” especially for the “ – oxox ” Anne Lise, which old guys like my could use a lot of, even if it comes from a stranger, out of cyber space, on the internet super highway.
