I'm waiting for a message

Praying for a sign

The sweet voice that brings me to my knees

Entangled in certain hatred

Such bitterness coated in your sweet surrender

The small fa├žade of light

Running across your cheek

Spreading its fingers

Bringing you comfort

Where I should be

I watch your eyes flicker in your sleep

Grey from your hearaches

A hint of softness remains within

Still waiting for your return


Hating the meaning

Your coded feelings bring me no comfort

Locked emotions tell a story no more

Scream again so tears will return

Tell me the truth

Your sadness ever potent

Draw your life story out on lined paper for all to see

And then maybe, this will all go away
