I’ve waited for you forever
Stuck in a frozen space of time
Controlled by Gods of your choosing
Where even the leaves don’t move
And the sun feels like ice.
The world swirls around my emptiness
Its sweet edges caressing bitter words
Coaxing a response of closure
That I am unable to give to either of us.
The gripping of desperation seizes
And like a drowning angel
I can't let go.
Gasping for the living air you provide to me
Very survival depends on your whim.
And yet, your whim be to leave me in limbo
Hanging in my nothingness
Until such time as you see fit.
And I am at your mercy –
Hanging, defenseless, worthless and
