Awkward Silences

Awkward silences

creep through the night

tension so thick

I could cut it with a knife

wishing for it all to end

hoping that you feel the same

so that I can carry on

with this life of mine

knowing you are either

here for me

or you are not

so don't leave me hanging

hoping and wishing

that you will be mine

and either let

the heart break come

or the joy over flow

please just let me know

let this awkwardness end

let the tension fall

and utter the words

I've been waiting to hear

those simple words

that will set me free.
