I'll Wait

I could run away

Sometimes it’s what I’m best at

Where would you be?

Where would I be?

You’d be with someone else

and I’d still just be sitting here


Some days my heart is a sinking ship

Being dragged down by the weight of my own thoughts

My own overthinking

Fears only manifested in nightmares

Never really living

Never really alive

I’ll wait

I’ll wait because it’s what we have

I’ll wait

I’ll wait because this is where we are

Not running away

Standing still

I’ll wait as long as you need

Unconditional and smiling

I’ll wait…
