I sit waiting for someone else
knowing they won't show up
but protecting that flame in spite
I begin to wonder about
powers of suggestion
closing my eyes
breathing deeply
inwardly I chant your name
and fear keeps me in utero
fear that open eyes will reveal you
fear that open eyes won't reveal you
I am between here and there
in both but also neither
I won't step back
because I know
I won't step forward
because I don't
how long can I stay?
how long can you take?
forever is frightening
but never is painful
and I have been hurt for so long
I can't just let things happen
I can't just let go
because you are too wonderful
Yet who has ever gained
from holding on to nothing
I feel like crying
but I don't know why
so I sit and clasp my own hands
waiting
