Dreadful Long–Awaited Call

I waited for that call

To come again today –

Heart filled with dread and

Fear of devastating truth

And pain.

Time came by and slowed

For me at oh nine-thirty

And for a hundred ticks

I sat alone and waited for

Your death.

Two years today it’s been

And yet I wait because

I know this is the day

And time of termination of
My world.

 

My heart awaits your death

Again, as once it beat for just

Your smile and the softest

Touch to say I was the one

You loved.

 

I knew it would not come

For me, that news again that

Said you were forever gone

To play among the gods, but

I’m alone.
