Looking for Love

written by: Brian Wayne Smith

Hoping for forever as you dined,
Don’t waste your time.
You’re adults,
Speaking honestly should not have been mistaken.
“Not looking for anything serious.”
Should not have been misconstrued as being delirious.
Your bodies became intertwined
Why were you looking for love in the midst of lust?
You set yourself up for an unnecessary heartache.
It’s not her fault
You received that heartbreak.

Published author that writes free verse, prose, poetry, research and most importantly from the heart. My writing has more of an urban point of view and style. Simply because I am an African American that have seen and experienced things that people of other cultures may never see. Though I'm hoping to share reading material that we all could respect and continue to be open minded about.

I'm a husband, father, electronic engineering test technician, writer, and student. Life is busy but I'm striving to live my dreams with my great family that I love deeply. There are times when I feel like a failure. Then I look at how many times I've fallen just to dust myself off and continue running the race. Now I can look around at my life and see that my "failures" were just locked doors that God wasn't ready to open yet.
