Folded and closed
I wait
For the time when they
will no longer be empty.

Slowly and cautiously
they open
Leaving the protection
that they shared together.

Resting and alone
it calls
Voicelessly begging me
to hold and caress it.

Sitting in silence
I still wait
Even after the invitation
stillness continues to reign.

Next to me
she still waits
For the connection to be made
that could spark eternal fire.

Silently in darkness
it still waits
Growing anxious and cold
and quickly losing hope.

Hesitent and shaking
I move
But falter and fall short
leaving it still alone.

Thinking too much
I fail
And needlessly worry about
offense and reciprocity.

Night ends

Her hand

My hand

Together never meeting
leaving both devoid of comfort and
Desperately awaiting the moment when
fire would kindle and life would change.
I wrote this back in February, the same day as Drowning Once More, uploaded it directly to storage, and then forgot all about it. (I didn't want it falling into the wrong hands. Forgive the awful pun.)

Well, here it is.

Aww, you're too kind :blushes: And yes, I finally got up the courage. I think it was only a few days after I wrote this. And now I'm in Washington because of it

Haha...thanks! I've never thought it was particularly great, but I'm always a harsh critic of myself :D
