The Wait

Did the rhythm of my heartbeat

Not guide your feet;

Did the warmth of my embrace

Not leave a trace?

Did the song on my lips

Or the sway of my hips

Not remind you of the dream

We redeemed?

Did the call of my footsteps

Not wreck your days

The dancing, the missteps,

My fall from grace

Did the chatter of raindrops

Misguide my hopes;

Did a heady mountain brew

Drive wayward you?

Oh my love, could it be

That I never did see,

How the paths I wrought

Were ones you never sought…?


A wayward thinker hiding behind the facade of necessary courtesies
