I waited,
waited all day, all month, all year.
Hope against hope, waiting, wishing, praying.
But the words never came.
Instead, I got a string of words that meant nothing
but everything all at once.
Vowels & consonants placed together, impersonating poetry.
They once made my heart soar,
but now they fall flat, like lead on the walls I've re-built
brick by brick.
I'm so tired, bone-weary, muscles fatigued, brain drained.
I lost myself whilst waiting for those words,
the ones I somehow believed would fix me;
make everything better.
Buth they never came.
So now I'm drowning in a sea, in my brain, gulping for air.
