Waiting


I waited
For you to speak
My eyes pleaded
Your eyes were cold

I waited
For you to speak
Time passed
And grew old

I waited
For you to speak
I hoped
Hope faded

I waited
For you to speak
I cried
My tears froze

In desperation
My soul drowning
I asked
For you to speak

Do you love me?

Ignoring me
You left the room, and
With words backward flung
Said ‘of course’

I learnt waiting
You loved me
By my absence and
Words flung backwards
