Time is standing still, yet I cannot settle down
Everything hangs in the balance, and I wait
Until an indefinite time to know for sure what the future holds
I am paralyzed in a state between hope and grief
What a place to be
My emotions are spinning, therefore so is the earth under my feet
I’ve ridden the top of the wave, crashed, and shattered on the rocks
Resigned myself to be broken for a while, awaiting the lull in the storm
Had given in to the notion of empty spaces and a whirling vortex of disbelief
And now, I’ve been caused to feel the up surge, feeling as though I’m being lifted up
Dare I to allow myself to hope, given that it could all come crashing down again
Before it even gets back off the ground?
For there have been no real promises made, though beautiful words were spoken
How can I stop it, when my heart seems to whisper the sound of your name
Each time it beats in my hollowed out chest?
Just for now I will dare to allow a glimmer of hope
As I sit in a state of trepidation, knowing that on the other side of this storm
Will either be the rushing return of love’s embrace or the cold, harshness in which
I’ve recently dwelt, and had begun to convince myself I’d have to live in until I learned to go on without you
Even though terror quakes in my chest, just for now I embolden myself to anticipate the feel of your kiss once more.
