While I Was Waiting…

I decided to unlock my fingers from yours

Your kiss lost its significance

I lost it . . . I lost you

My universe no longer lies within you so I took my stars back — I needed the light

I put the boxing gloves on the shelf — the fight is done

I turned limp in your embrace — you never held me tight when I wrapped my arms around your frame until now

That beating heart you let shrivel in the dry heat of your own selfishness? I need that back

I’ve fallen in love with myself so hard — you’re eyes unveil concealed agony

While I was waiting I stopped waiting

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
