A long wait

~A long wait~

A long wait,it has been.
For the pain to turn into a dull ache,
For your memories to not hurt deeply.

A long wait,it will be.
For my heart to accept this pain as the only reminder,
Of a time when it had opened up to you.
Now it awaits;
When it can again see you as a passing stranger who didn’t stay.

A long wait,it has been.
My heart had chose silence.
It longs to be freed,
String the unsaid words and weave them into these bare pages.

A long wait,it will be.
When that dream will be left behind at a distance.
Time gently nudging and pulling me away.
Reality finally catching up on me.

A long wait,it is.
