Waiting on Wishes

Stars crash at my feet

Black pieces of coal and ash

Scattered in the dew-covered grass

A sparse sky empty of decoration

A vast expanse of silent darkness

Empty of planets, moons, and light

Taunting me with my own desolation

Why is it so hard to hold on to another?

In a world that spins so crazily and so fast

How do you hold on to anyone's hand long enough?

How does love come into being?

What makes it transient for some?

What makes it eternal for the rare few?

As the breeze caresses my face

The familiar grief

shrouded in the gloom

There's only me…

And I will not bow

I will not break

I'm just waiting on wishes.
