Life is to short So many wasted moments

Written by: William J. Jr. Atfield

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.
