Waiting

W
I waited
For you to speak
My eyes pleaded
Your eyes were cold
I waited
For you to speak
Time passed
And grew old
I waited
For you to speak
I hoped
Hope faded
I waited
For you to speak
I cried
My tears froze
In desperation
My soul drowning
I asked
For you to speak
Do you love me?
Ignoring me
You left the room, and
With words backward flung
Said ‘of course’
I learnt waiting
You loved me
By my absence and
Words flung backwards
