I've been waiting for you--
Bare legs braced against splintered posts
Muscles knotted with tension
Fingers pressed whitely on the worn railing
Eyes straining into the shadows
Skin textured like sandpaper with the cold.
I've been waiting for you--
While stars spread like fireworks into the mist
While raindrops shattered on my forehead
While curious eyes fixed on my rigid silhouette
While the moon burst between the clouds
And taunted me with silver rays.
I've been waiting for you
For so long.
Many lifetimes.
