I No Longer Wait

 

 

You speak to me ..but I do not hear you..

Not in any real way.

I damage my ear–Van Goch style–to make a point.

The wind speaks to me..

The earth awaits my fall..

I am not unhappy–just alone..

You left me without warning..

You knew..

I did not..

I awaited redemption..

You did not..

I awaited

I awaited

Salvation took an unknown turn..

A different turn..

You were told by some silent mystery

I was not-

I no longer wait.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unforgiven Dream

 

 

Your sad voice called my name.

Are you unhappy?

Are you disappointed in me?

I thought you were proud of me.

You mentioned insignificant people for unknown reasons in my dream.

What does that mean?

I struggle to find keys to accelerate the carriage.

What does that mean?

There was water and a bear that we could not pass- what does that mean?

I felt you presence after the dream..

I know you don’t want to set me back so you stayed silent.
