Why can’t I believe the words you say
I feel like you will only allow me
to believe the lies the world tells,
so that you will be set free from
the guilt of having me wait,
even when there is no other for you
but me and no place where I exist,
that you do not reside.
So dear love, I will remain
and await your return.
