I waited

Posted: July 29, 2017 in Uncategorized

I waited on the sidelines

I waited on the roads

I waited as the raindrops crashed against my feet

I waited by the rocks

I waited on the tip of the iceberg

I waited on the edge of the silver lining

And as I waited for faith to absorb me

I lost my sanity

And the hands of the clock move so fast

The walls begin to crack

I try and try to be a better person

As my patience devours me whole

I waited in my room

I waited as I watched the movies all alone

Bygone years flash before my eyes

I waited by the phone

I waited when I played my songs

I waited for the fireflies

And as I waited for outsiders

The sun within me died

And as I waited on the bathroom floor

Cigarette butts crawled up the door

I try and try to find the door knob

As my patience devours me whole
