Time Stands Still

I wait so long
For her,
For her smile,
For her laugh,
For her beauty
To shine over me,
I cannot be patient
For much more,
I must speak to her,
I must see her,
I must feel the warmth
Of my heart
Beating for her.

I am so alone
Without her,
I am disconnected,
Distant,
And detached.
I cannot function
My happiness
Without her words.

The floor welcomes my body
As I lie
In the darkness.
I stare silently,
Hopeful for the day to pass
And the next to begin.
The time draws closer
Towards the day of joy.

My heart sinks lower
With every second past.
I feel it now,
Beating down in the depths.
‘Absence develops the heart’,
But much longer
And it just might splinter.

Time Stands Still
