№ 73: Lost Love


while you were crying

i searched,
searched for an antidote
to the poison in your heart,
tried to find
the reason in your choice

we have met
a thousand times
in a thousand unknown places,
and i have watched
you shed those tears
in a thousand different ways

still, you resist
the aching of the soul
— self-inflicted agony
that bars you from my touch

forever and a day
i’ll wait, i’ll support
those feeble structures
you’ve built to cage your heart,
give credit to your stubbornness
and unfeeling self-determination,

and even if we never meet
beyond the shadows of the night,
i’ll wait
