Fishing for Love

By RaheemaFKM

Careful I plan, this one final stand
Holding my breath as fate plays its hand
 
Eagar I wait, dropping the bait, hoping it’s not far much too late
For me to trap some sweet foolish chap, stuck in denial’s most welcoming lap
 
Biting my tongue, I wish and I run, through countless short dreams in which I’m undone
 
Always by just that one stupid one, fighting to push me far away from his lingering heart, unwilling to come
All the way down for this stubborn one
 
Who will not give up until she is done, bleeding her heart out over the one
Seeking to keep from being undone, if only by just this one lovesick one
 
Reckless I fall into the abyss, filled with the hearts all seeming to miss
Their every last chance to grasp onto bliss, which leaves them all hanging, just after a tryst
 
Wanting for more and cursing cruel fate, just as one comes to snatch up the bait
Missing the hook they pull out too late, and forcing them all to wait, wait, and wait
 
Tired I sit in still empty space, holding my breath, refusing to waste
 
My time on anything less in this place, than catching the heart to fill up the space

    *bows deeply* Thank you very much for the wonderful and thoughtful feedback. In some ways I've always looked at love as a fishing sport. You've got the bait, the line, and the reel (or draw if you'd prefer). Lolz, I've always been fairly impatient with fishing in general, but I'm alright at the mental version of the task. I'm glad you enjoyed this piece. Thank you once again for the feedback. ^-^
