Wait

Craving connection so real, your heart aches
torn in pieces as tried and true prophecy
lays tangled in the treason of your own truth

when no living thing can reach this,
the depths of your sorrow,
and your eyes are trained on the invisible ๏น˜
hoping against hope that the sun will rise,
as you slip into a place where you can barely breathe…
wait

leave it be
leave it be

when nothing else matters
anything can happen

These words I share are mine
borrowed from pockets of the past
I know your pain

leave it be
leave it be

when nothing else matters
anything can happen

and so I beg you

wait

tomorrow brings a new day
and light is a living thing

it will find your heart
in its own time

wait

the sunrise
crowned in golden hues
and crimson skies
will be
beautiful

leave it be

and wait

  1. I am fascinated by the manner you demand patience; you want it and you want it now… Well, sometimes, that is the best approach, when trying to gain someone’s focus, with a surge in a sense of urgency.

    I am glad I stepped into this self promoting arena, if for no other reason, I would not have been afforded the opportunity to read this poem… and just for the record, I read it aloud. It was best that way.

    Thanks, Myke
