If Only

If only you would,

say you remember me.

Cause I’ve waited for you

since the day you left me.

I’m waiting,

in the room that was ours.

In this room,

I wait.

Devoid of hope,

and love,

and cheer,


I wait for you,

my dear.

Every day I hear the door,

I run,

and throw my arms out wide,

hoping to see you…

But you’re never there.

In this world of ours,

so harsh and hostile,

I wait for you.

if only,

you’d wait for me.

“Left. Right.”

Day 6 of the 2012 November PAD Challenge

“Left. Right”

You stay there on the left
And I’ll stay right here
Keep your distance from me.

I hate this as much as you
But there’s just no way it seems
to meet at the middle.

Either I follow you on the left
Or you jump right next to me
Are the only options we’ve got.

Can we live this way?
I don’t know.
Left. Right.
Which way should we go?
