Waiting

I’m waiting on a light

That may never arrive;

I’m grabbing at the stars

And catching only dust.

Every moment builds into

Another moment lost

And still I wait,

Humming in the night,

As though the world will shine on me

In my ceaseless indolence.

Dreams unravel

It is reality waiting

Not this fiction I have woven

Into this false world.

  1. This is fantastic! I feel suspense but also disappointment. Some beautiful imagery. I love the line, ‘dreams unravel’. Is this a command or are your dreams unravelling? Great stuff!
