~a poem about waiting for my love to return~

As I see you walk away
I try to freeze time in my hands

Within my mind’s eye, I see images of ocean waves
mixed with smiles, and can hear your laughter

Once again, I see exactly where I am
for a fantasy cannot be lived for long
when other things come to interrupt
a fly, an itch, a need, due to thirst
all of those human annoyances
that tend to get in the way

Let me be heard within this fantasy
let me tell the future how to form
and maybe with a hope and a prayer
something there will manifest into another dream of you

For even though I hold you in my thoughts
I feel you sifting through like sand
and I can’t chase the winds that rush upon the waves
or capture the sounds of your laughter
they’re all but gone.

And so I sit here all alone
wondering if you will be back once more
and fill my heart with the unquenchable love
that I am longing for

Only you can satisfy my innermost desires
my heart belongs to you, and only you
and so I wait
