Slipping Away

Every day, like today the same,
livin life day after day
some might think it's just a game
i just ask why things keep slipping away.

I live my life in faith and serving
only asking for happiness to gain,
but the only thing reappearing
is that things slip away bringing pain.

Do i ask to much of my life?
if looking for love in another,
keeps bringing me nothing but strife
than why should i bother?

Is it wrong to question
the God who has brought me through
the pain of my past in all my transgression?
even through pain i knew i grew.

But after all of this i feel alone
Every thing just keeps slipping away.
where can i find a stepping stone
to hold me up for one more day?

So i sit and wait, and wait
for someone to look for me in love
to hold me close till the day turns late
no longer slipping from far above.

When I wrote this poem, I had been watching my at the time crush from a distance and thought that he loved me only to see that he was going out with someone else. I wrote this to express my inner longing for love and express my inner pain that I refused to outwardly express
