hours

Posted to Action Poetry




hours i have waited
in stifled desperation
looking through windows
through rain and snow
feeling my breath steam
against the glass and wanting
to smudge a message to anyone
who can see
me
from here from this
place that no girl
should be
still cold
still waiting
for the hum of you
to round the corner
as i choke back hurt
and pretend it wasn't you
i was waiting for
all along.
